    To reiterate ChuckP's post, a blown lp/hp hose or even a free-flowing reg in side there with inexperienced divers and it goes from zero to Sh*t Show in a heart beat. Good luck handing off your Octo on a standard hose and getting the diver out without incident. There actually is a valid reason for a 7' primary hose.

    I suspect that this was aimed at @Coztick not you.

    If I may, take the musings of the OP with a grain of salt. This was his very successful attempt at kicking the hornet’s nest.

    How you conduct your dives is entirely up to you, I do sonar and side scan passes. survey dives on the wreck and area where she is, and most certainly wouldn’t plan a wreck dive on internet information. I believe that’s what I said on my post.

    If “kicking the horrnet’s nest” equates to trolling, I agree with you. iDocSteve has been doing this for years under different guises. It’s a game for him.

    The type of sites this thread is talking about is one with plans for sale, mooring balls, and probably sees more divers in a day than you site sees in a year.

    If a diver is banned for extreme hubris it might be constructive to allow them read only privileges

    I don't know for sure, but I would assume that they can read posts. I would see little to no difference between being banned and what you can do while not logged in, or if you found a link to a thread as a result of a "Google search".

    If the incident was not overly egregious, a "time out" with read only privileges might be appropriate. In this instance, however, the OP clearly met the standard to be banned. I am happy to accept the judgement of the mods.

    What is that standard exactly that you are referring to? What did the OP do in your mind that crossed the line other than posting about diving in a way that others object to? I have seen people do some really stupid stuff in my time on this planet, while I disagree with what/how the OP wanted to go about the SG dive, I also know that his participation or not on this board will do little to nothing to prevent him from exercising his will. There are far more people out there doing far more egregious things. I used to be an avid rock climber...I can tell you stories of the stupid things I have witnessed that put peoples lives in direct danger...more so than this OP could probably dream up.

    My thinking is the OP was a sock puppet account of a previously banned member, there seemed to be some similarities to the argumentative dismissiveness that seemed similar to another poster that is no longer a member of SB. Perhaps the mods figured that out and hence the ban of the new screen name...the OP's profile did not list many posts from what I recall seeing. Or that can be totally wrong...I guess we will never know.
