I DO agree with the second.
The problem is we are having an open discussion on the web that anyone can see. That means people with no experience, and no ability to critically sift through what is said and apply it correctly in context could be reading what we say and adopting it. There is a tendency for people to look for bumper sticker sized answers as solutions to solve complex problems. That is just not realistic. So I jumped in to mention that while blading is useful in a certain context it is a handicap in others.
