Strict belay tests have their purpose. Although they can annoy the more experienced, they help filter out the dangerous. Gyms are renowned for being packed full of people who have absolutely no idea what they are doing. I dont think a day goes by where I climb in a gym and dont notice some kid with his hands off the belay device and a loop of slack on the floor, all while his partner is going for the crux move. The staff members try to filter out this sort of crap by upping their belay test difficulty.
