No, no, no, no, no!

I didn't write, "Remember to breath, as you don't want to asphyxiate. Remember to open your eyes, as you'll be able to see better that way; tie your shoe laces, brush your teeth, wear sun screen and call your mother more often" .... and dozens of other things that are so bleedingly obvious that they shouldn't need to be said.

I also didn't write, "After having discussed this on the ground before climbing there is then no further communication between both parties, ever, ever, again."...... nor did I write ...... "as soon as you see your climbing partner at the anchor, take them off belay as quickly as you can and run away before they have a chance to say anything".

What I did write is "Decide what is going to happen once you're at the top in discussion with your belayer before starting to climb". This is a reasonable thing to do, and will go a long way to reduce miscommunication. This conversation might also extend to the terminology to be used and its meaning.
