Marta, the designation DIR is not, in and of itself, the problem. We all want to "do it right". Almost no one is against its principle and practices. They are absolutely proven in almost all sport and tech diving scenarios. It's the ultimate in scuba diving safety. The problem is a perceived rigid inflexibilty of the system, no individual adaptation allowed. That's why it's described as "holistic"; all or nothing at all. Again, this is the perception of DIR/GUE that the system advocates would classify as a MISperception. I personally choose to regard the DIR system as a set of tools, some of which work for me, some don't given my very individual, personal diving procedures.
Bottom line: ignore the anti-DIR posts because they're posted from ignorance. They offer only contempt prior to investigation. FWIW.
