It would be interesting to see some stats on the breakdown.

There will be people who logon often just to read the posts or feel they do not have anything to add to posts.

There will be the ones who asks questions and then there are the ones who are willing to contribute opinions and answers.

I think that generally as people get used to the board they realise that the general attitude is not to shoot people down in flames (unlike on some other boards) and the ones who start posting seem to continue in the same vein despite the occasional conflicting (although usually well thought out) opinions.

The one exception to the above seems to be the DIR boys, who do seem to be getting a bit of a rough time of late, part of the problem I believe is that many of us are reasonably familiar with there methods, kit and approach to diving.   There does seem to be a bit of a trend to light a match (albeit a small flame) when they mention, for example a halcyon wing.  What I guess we need to remember is that their point of view is as valid as yours or mine and OK it may seem to some of us that we have heard the same stuff over and over again but that is because they have a very standardised system.  The new people joining the board who are asking the questions or opinions may not be familiar with it and without the input from the DIR crowd they do not have all the information to make an objective decision.

Sorry, got a bit off track there but lets lighten up a bit and try to remember what YD is about, no politics regardless of agency.  I do believe the success of YD and the number of postings is totally down to this attitude and without it we end up with people who stop posting because they feel they are being attacked at ever opportunity.

Anyway stats....  so what if anything is possible,?

Well it is a bit more than that really.  It is a holistic system of diving.

It is more than just having all the equipment setup in a certain way and of a certain type.  It is also about having the correct attitude, procedures and fitness levels.

The following sites have some more information on if you want to find out more about what DIR is all about.
