"I would never get out of bed if I lived by your saying..."

Yes I appreciate that in normal life but it wasn't my saying really, I was paraphrasing what all the international conservation conventions say:
if somewhere is going to be changed it had better be based on a fair degree of certainty that it moves it closer to it's essence and original intention and it had better involve a broad consensus.

People that want to leave stuff at sites worry me as they are saying they need changing to some previous use and they know what it was or they want to use them for their own purposes or in accordance with their own beliefs and if people object people are unreasonable or wrong respectively. I don't think they're right.
