My apologies if I misinterpret this, but I think WG is pointing out that its not worth nit-picking to achieve true-equalization, but he never says any thing about not establishing a good belay anchor, especially when they are available.
definitely. I was just responding to this statement by skiclimb:
In reply to:
I generally find any anchor with less than three good equalized points .. at best..less than desirable..
most of the time, I'd feel pretty comfortable with three bomber pieces even if they weren't equalized.

No real argument here. perfect equalization isn't the point. Just that I have an ideal anchor in mind that is preferable when reasonably implementable.

It certainly IS NOT 2 points with no attempt at all to share the load between them.
