    It's probably not for us per se, it's for the people who were "just steadying myself and a piece broke off, I put it in my pocket just so I could ask what to do with it, but then I forgot, so I took it home".

    Many dive instructors insist on their students holding on to the anchor line... :(

    Every single dive i go on, a pair of gloves is ALWAYS on. Granted i dive primarily to spearfish so its mostly for sharp spine protection

    In almost 15 years of diving, I've dived in many places with a no gloves rule and in each of those places, there was never a need for them.

    I'd say I'm just lucky if it was maybe 2 years of diving, but almost 15 years? Sounds like a bunch of cry babies with really bad habits who can't dive without gloves in a no glove zone.
