Hahah well translated, Rich. :)

With all respect Bob, you can't have your cake and eat it too. You can't say "I'm against bolting for a number of reasons" and then go on to add x and y qualifying arguments - "I'm totally against bolting unless there's no pro and it's not next to a crack, or I just get scared and want a rivet." Well you can, it just makes your argument look a little worse.

It seems that your ideas boil down to: stop all further bolting except blank face bolting, however any bolt that DOES exist should be refitted where necessary. Frankly you come across as uninformed and slightly arrogant - these are all issues that have been debated ad nauseum in climbing circles both local and international.

Now I'm not saying that your opinions are wrong, I happen to agree with them to a certain degree, but you might want to look into the issue a bit more. Then if you've got something useful to add to the debate, I'm sure everyone'd be happy to listen to it. Have good one. :)
