I actually managed to read that and then subsequently forget about it. Go ahead bolt it, you've got permission.

My point about chopping it was more for the sort of folks that think it's okay to just retro old bolts because they feel like it without asking the first ascentionist/locals etc. Chris' comment about doing it and not telling anybody rang alarm bells about people doing that stuff without taking into account the FA.
I hardly think I was blowing it out of proportion, since that's the generally accepted ethic. Perhaps I'm just old fashioned though.
