Oh! You mean rules whereby people don't climb on stones simply out of respect for the wishes of others and where egotists don't think it doesn't apply to them for some reason and where people who query people that do it aren't told to let sleeping dogs lie? Could it happen?

(PS VBB, that's a fantastic bit of writing. Moses himself couldn't have made a better case for keeping off monuments. It's as compelling as the Leave Only Footprints mantra. Maybe it should be published more widely elsewhere?)


Off topic a little, but Codes of Conduct nevertheless didn't mean much to this thug who because of his position avoids a real come-uppence and gets away with a fine that would be like sweet money to him but more importantly, no deterrent to stop him from doing it again.
