I'm not talking about legislating when people use putters, at all.

I'm saying that people use all sorts of definitions for "putting", when arguing that putting in disc golf is easier than in golf,...

I threw it in just to further muddy the waters. Of course, some of us carry multiple putters for different shots; I doubt any golfers do. If some of our pros throw a putter at 300', is that a putt?...

Unlike Steve, I just hang on to "expect". Which is a bit vague, I know. But if more than 50% of plays are getting the same score, that's the one I expect. That's par.

So 50% is too high. Or...

How big is "small"?

A pyramid has to be pretty big, to make landing on the steps feasible and advantageous. If too small, the terraces are so narrow that sticking on them is more a matter of...

I once found our course on a site that claimed to list every course in the world, but clearly didn't. And it had a lot of wrong information. I think it had just scraped in the info from the PDGA...

I don't know that scorecard tiebreakers are particularly unfair, if chosen and announced in advanced, and chosen well (as sudden death holes should be).

Essentially, these holes are...

Would the frequency of very high round ratings (say, 1070+) indicate a softer course? Or just a shorter one?

I don't see how you can talk about 18 under par, and say it has nothing to do with how par is set.

Were it set differently, he would might have shot 12 under par, but still won by the same margin...

Count me in the "c" minority.

Well, probably, having not seen this hole; it could be an "a".

But I like dangerous holes---holes where you have to play well to keep pace, but there's significant...

By "We" I meant all of us, everywhere, making compromises for the peace when we can. The issues that bother me may not be the issues that bother you, but yours are just as valid as mine.
