What does your community do about "route developers" that put new lines 2-3 feet from existing lines, routes that cross other lines, or adding bolts despite sharing the same climbing sections???

Retrobolters are worse. Can't live with 'em, but shooting them can be problematic.

Looking to replace some normal bolts with radio controlled explosive bolts might be a solution,..

Chop em? If they feel so compelled to grid bolt, why wouldn't it seem reasoable to grid chop em?

from the mp link above
People are complaining that this is a squeeze job and are also able to place pro in the cracks. This is an example of over bolting and they should be removed!

if you're able top place pro in the cracks then do it. is someone forcing you to clip the bolts?

Skitch and Scrubbing bubbles should take a boxing class or something. You guys NEED drama. Bad. Might be good to get those aggressions out.
