as i eluded to, i dont really like carrots either. but not because theyre necessarily unsafe, i just fucking hate them.
what i object to is people rewarding new routers (read bolters in this state) with complaints. if you dont like them bolting using carrots, cough up some dough so they can buy better bolts.
**or better still, beat them to the virginal rock theyre about to chip and carrot bolt, and put up your own routes. just dont bitch when they beat you to it….
and colin, that is not “some local experience with carrots” that is “one local experience with carrots”. scientifically that is better odds than getting skin cancer.
