Also I am less inclined to look at long gear posts, which bore me.

Hello pot, this is the kettle. You are still black. No one like to read long and excessive length self validating posts either.

As such, I must thumb my nose at those sniveling at DIR.

You are right. People should stop sniveling at it and just listen to the message not the messenger. Keep that thumb on your nose.

The history of deep diving in CA is a deadly one. The DIR folks have promoted far more advanced form of technical diving than anything used before on the west coast.

True for technical diving and a welcome promotion to those who do it. But how can you say that since you have no experience based opinion of technical diving beyone nitrox? No one in the recreational DIR fundamentals class I took said anything about diving beyond the generally accepted sport diving limits of 130 feet. Which class did you take?

DIR is likely to shape the future of diving.

That is a true statement, and it already has in the sport diving arenas of Florida, Seattle, and the SF Bay area. For once South CA is behind the curve.
