You are right - words are just words, and flame wars are just entertaining. As long as it stays in cyberworld it's meaningless (although insensitive comments regarding the untimely death of a respected fellow diver just because he didn't happen to be on the "Right" side can ruin credibility even in the real world). My only reason for even voicing an opinion on the subject is out of concern for my own freedoms. When people start saying that nobody should be allowed to dive "X" dive unless they've had "X" training by "X" -- that's when I feel the need to say something. So naturally, I just kind of get caught up in any stupid argument about the need for "DIR" in Calif. Basically, if you guys want to all wear octos on rubber bands -- go right ahead, just don't tell me I have to.

BTW, I really like the "Stroke" gallery thing.
