That's not true. I'm not allergic to new ideas, it's just that most new (and old) ideas are shit. The "open minded people" often seem to be optimistic morons who latch onto every new idea then discard it just as quickly when the inevitable downsides become apparent. But they never learn to consider the downside of the next great new thing.

To address your examples;

ebike - fuching great, will get one shortly as a car substitute for local trips. Downside - chubby fuchers are using them to access wilderness which was previously only accessible to fit people, so more relatively untouched areas will get trashed.

Autotune- it's a tool which can be used in moderation to allow people with good ideas and slightly unpalatable voices to break through. Downside - it's actually being used to completely erase singing ability as a prerequisite, so now selection is based upon looks even more than it used to be, which is fuched.

Electronic music - it is real music but it can't be live music. The Beatles had the integrity to stop gigging once they started making what was often primitive electronic music. Nowadays you get two dickheads standing on a stage with a Mac each doing fuch all other than pressing play and wanking around with Blue Steel on their dial, and arseclowns have the audacity to call it a live gig.

Anyway, that's all by the by. What this is really about is that time I said it isn't possible to be a competent experienced climber if you maxed out at grade 21. You have hated me ever since, because you're a low 20s punter who bases their identity on being a super competent authority on climbing and just happens to not ever have climbed high grades. I still stand by that idea. There's a few exceptions, but I doubt you tick any of the boxes. And I'm not suggesting that your personal climbing is any less valid or that you shouldn't do it. Just that when someone is mouthing off as an authority on the subject and then you find out they've never really gotten past the level which lots of people reach in their first year.......?!?
