I went back and looked. In two of the pictures, divers have their entire upper torsos on the reef, with their elbows wedged into the rocks. It's worth repeating, this is just a very bad example of UW photo etiquette and shouldn't be repeated or emulated by other divers. I don't care how "careful" they thought they were being - they put themselves in a vulnerable position. All it would take is a sudden surge or change in current to knock them into a live section of the reef.

As for your concerns about anchor damage at Farnsworth and the damage bug hunters do, these are excellent, and completey separate, points.
