I'm not positive of everything all your posts here say, but it sorta seems like you have a hard time standing on a firm disagreement with me.
I agree with you in ways.
MHK does some remarkable diving.
He seems to be promoting a good thing.
As time goes on I have seen that though obviously developed for cave/wreck and that comes through really strong on the websites and the DIR writings, DIR can be used well enough in CA, though I don't think it's as good as he claims. There are some spots that get glossed over.
DIR certainly does not work as well for photo or hunting, activities I like, simply because solo is better for me for these. DIR demands a lot of attention on your buddy, attention I like for what's around me.
Yes, when I met MHK in person and he seemed like a nice guy. I also get that impression from others.
Nothing about DIR though is the issue. Just look at the posts mentioned in 'May I Clarify'. That chronicles some very calculated lies. There are lots more. Those are just the days before the demo. I think that's easy to see and I think it is easy to see why that might get me annoyed. What has annoyed me more in the past is his harassment of others.
I could go completely DIR though and it wouldn't change anything. Neither does anything I say or that he says. My post is not to him. It's to all the people that can read his post...

Seahunt has, once again, introduced the theory that we have failed to adequately explained to address the issue.
and not get a bit uncomfortable with such a calculated lie, seeming posted in a very calculated way just to promote publicity for the demo this weekend. Aside from what I think about it, that he just casually used a lie to promote his agenda, should make people uncomfortable.
I've given my opinion of him before. Now I want to see how this community responds. Not him.
My honesty has been rarely questioned and I always have provided the URLs to back myself up. Also, I have only been accused of dis-honesty by MHK, who I claim is not an acceptable witness. Besides, I don't push much besides having fun diving.
My responce to you is simple and I got some waffling back. Was that or was that not some pretty calculated dishonesty? It's there in print. It wasn't innocent or for some mitigating reason. It was to promote a DIR demo.
Again, anyone that has no problem with that... well, I just don't understand them. Like I told MHK, I'd rather be called almost anything besides dishonest.
