    Nope nada wrong. Everyone has the right to say what ever they want to whoever they want whenever they want.

    Now what people forget is that words have consequences.

    . .. Yr not a Padi diver without one! Anyway teasing someone abt the colors they wear is a good way to pass the Surface Interval. Thou i am not averse to waterproof eyeliner used as it amplifies underwater expression behind my mask. Hence assuring my buddy I am sincere over his discovery of ' yet another fab nudibranch here!' ...... *sigh* k

    Right to say anything any time? Not exactly. Try yelling “fire” in a crowded theater.

    Been there, done that.

    In a line waiting to pass from one section of Newark Airport to another. Not too long after that thing that happened one day in September. One person in the group I was traveling with thought it was a good idea to start joking about bombs. While waiting in line. I was, "dude, that word is the same here. Shut up. Shut the F***! up!!! I want to get home on the flight we're booked on, I don't want to spend the night in a cell here" (between clenched teeth, inching slowly away from Mr. Moron)

    Luckily, no-one seemed to overhear us.

    Best reason for colours or distinctive kit. We dive as a family group and great to see where everybody is and what they're doing and looking at or under.

    There are color options worse than black in some circumstances. I know one instructor who is also a very good photographer. His wetsuit is camouflage (one of those suits designed for free diving spearfishing). Not bad for photography but probably not the best choice for an instructor teaching an open water into to scuba class.......
