Guidebook not Quotebook

What is with people quoting directly out of guidebook when discussing different areas or climbs??

We were at the crag the other day when we were discussing the route we had just been on with the party
beside us, when one of the other party quoted a line directly out of the guide to describe the climb as if it
was his own. Do these people think I am illiterate?? Are people unable to think for themselves??

if you can tell me what the fk a fillip is then i will stop quoting lou's description for surface to air

on another note, everyone knows that guidebook editors are all knowing and therefore quoting them is better than anything you could ever come up with about a climb

Is that rhetorical?

For a bit of my own medicine (because I can't think for myself)

filˇlip (flp)
n.
1. A snap or light blow made by pressing a fingertip against the thumb and suddenly releasing it.
2. An embellishment that excites or stimulates: "Spritely tabasco onions, just a little crunch for the
top, were an added fillip" Alison Arnett.
3. One that is trivial or of little importance.
tr.v. filˇliped, filˇlipˇing, filˇlips
1. To strike or propel rapidly by as or as if by a fillip: filliped his finger against my ear; filliped the
pretzel across the counter.
2. To stimulate or arouse.

But at least I am not palming it off as my own.

No more quoting the Surface to air Description.
