I don't think that it is a forgone conclusion that a moderately grooved carabiner is weaker than an an ungrooved one. Limited information from BD suggests that the point where the groove develops, the bottom of the carabiner's basket, is not where carabiners typically break in any common failure mode. So moderate weakening there may have no effect on the biner's ultimate strength.

Yep, your were just making a point.

That's all I did earlier too, which initiated your self appointed modding powers to curb the thread, which apparently also allows you to exempt yourself from making like points.

I said I was making a substantive point that was germane to the topic of thread. You're just derailing the thread, and it is clear now that you are doing so intentionally.

Strike 2.
