Why do I feel like people have PV paranoia? PV know we place bolts. They know there are lots of them. They have had the public complain about them before. If they were going to blanket ban climbing because of the mere existing of bolting, they would have done so already.

Why would reporting irresponsible climbers lead to banning? It simply acknowledges that we recognise inappropriate bolting. If they are going to ban because it's easier than fining or legal action, wouldn't they then be setting themselves up for an awful lot of fining/legal action?

Hey, we can't be fuucked fining you guys for inappropriate bolting, so we will just ban you climbing instead. Oh look, you are still climbing. Does that me we have to fine you anyway?

Banning will lead to an awful lot of work for PV. It's hardly likely to be the blanket response to climbers stepping up and reporting climbers that have not been responsive to peer action.
