Along with bemusement at the disintegration of the other thread, I can't help but scratch my head at the bombast.

Logic suggests that even if only a small proportion of the (much more numerous) sport climbers at the affected areas take as much offense at your mass bolt cutting approach as you have at their retrobolting, the long term end result is probably more likely to be a lot of scarred and wrecked Blueys climbs with just as many bolts as they had beforehand. Not to mention sport climbers grid bolting Arapiles or Booroomba (pick a famous trad area) in retaliation.

I'm taking the cynical view that the 'anything you can do, I can do better' responses are simply the result of boredom and unlikely to result in a new army of Ken Nicholses. You'd have to be dim to talk about something like this beforehand ;)
