    Please specify what reason you think Ana gave as to why most "average to below average divers should NEVER solo dive". It is unclear to me.

    Ok is this like some people that read the Bible and their interpretation is to love everyone without judgement and then other people read the same Bible and their interpretation is that half of the population has to be stone to death?

    No its not. the comparison is accurate. Comparing pro to pro would nto be discussed. Its the amatures that get them into trouble and it is noticed by the shear volumn of them. amature divers are not instinctivly prepared to handle problems like the long experienced tree service.
