Hmmmm.... Since my last post on this thread, much has indeed evolved throughout the area I live and climb in.
Even got an incredible charm of an opportunity to put up a couple of Classic Routes up high in the BC of the Eastern Sierra with old Brutus and Nurse Ratchet.
Have also done several dozen anchor/rebolt projects since then and have encountered untold number of retro'd mank etc. Even have had folks come right behind us days later and steal anchors, chop/add bolts etc.
I have since given up caring as myself and folks that I have assisted in these projects can not keep up with some the BS that has been occurring in our area.
Hell, even found out a week or so ago that a challenging and rewarding FA of mine out in the desert I did some 16-17 years ago has a slew of added bolts to what was once bat hooks and rivets.
Thanks for re-posting this Rob..... just reconfirms the obvious for me.
