It's amazing how you two can distort things to suit your agenda. I looked at Elaine's pictures and saw two divers touching algae. Guess what. When a fish settles on a rock it does the same thing. Hydrocoral cannot be damaged by slight pressure. Of course, you want people to believe that you know what you're talking about, yet you don't even dive locally. We are not talking about a coral reef here.
I don't recall you calling MHK a wreck destroyer when he bragged about his Doria china or having a porthole from the Ace One 90% of the way off.
As for coming up with ad hoc solutions to problems that shouldn't exist(ankle weights) the solution that works for you is Jetfins. Guess what. It's the same thing. You use a tool to offset the buoyancy in your legs whether it's a one pound weight or a rubber fin. Because some divers prefer Jetfins does not mean those who do not are strokes, morons or living on borrowed time. If you ask MHK about his disagreement with George Irvine over cuff dumps he will tell you he prefers them because it makes it easier to dump the suit of a toxing diver. How is that for an ad hoc solution? How about not allowing the diver to breathe the wrong gas to begin with?
You two can go on Sergio's board and congratulate each other on you dominance over the World but you will still be two miserable humans who hate to see anyone else enjoying the underwater World. If you really feel the need to correct the habits of others, perhaps you should begin with MHK's spelling. That way when he feels the need to pick on girls he won't come across as such a fool.
