In this case I was saying it because there's been disagreement. Don't get me wrong, I firmly believe in replacing old bolts and fixing stuff up, but if there's disagreement about whether it's the right thing to do, I've always been taught it should fall to the first ascentionist. Might just me though.

Although now I read back through the thread there doesn't appear to be that much contention. Maybe I'm mixing up one thread with another.
