6) Most importantly, do any of you have anything constructive or in the realm of diving to criticize about me and/or my
Yes. "Most importantly".
You claim that you must resist people pushing dangerous diving
practices, but realistically, there are few things more dangerous
than diving deep. Divers found that out pretty early on and it's
still true no matter how good your method or gear. The dangers
are many and sometimes subtle, mostly though they are just fatal.
You clearly promote deep diving.
I've done enough deep diving to know this is true. Descisions at
depth must be made instantly and there is usually no room for error
or even hesitation. This is independant of any physical or mental
impairment the diver might experience from the depth. A mistake here
can mean death. That makes depth a dangerous place
People pushing the envelope in any known dangerous place are risking
death let alone injury.
Do you claim either that you do not promote deep diving or that it
is not inherently extremely dangerous? This is not a question
about solo diving. It's about your promotion of the highly
dangerous practice of deep diving.
