I totally agree Brian, but my perspective here is to help understand the root of the consequences of why a particular defect occurred.
If I can help some in understanding the actual circumstances of how something is and why it is not right or will not collapse, is a step in a direction needed to properly describe the defieciency observed.
Narritives to protect your behind is valued at just that.
I do operate under a different hat when doing inspections and use the same narratives, because most of the time, you don’t know the clients.
It is always good to protect yourself against unwarranted claims, but knowing what is right and what is wrong is always a +. And the biggest question is why it is not right.
After all, some Members like to know the Why for there own education for latter use.
