FWIW - My post was simply pointing out that as you create longer layouts in shared use, close proximity park:
1) Players are more likely to use drivers, which are:
a) less accurate
b) capable of doing more damage
c) thrown at higher speeds
2) It's harder to see potential conflicts with other people.

All of which exacerbate an already bad situation. Doesn't matter if the player and/or designer are newbs or Ken Climo and John Houck's love child: the alternate layouts make a bad situation worse. PDGA member or not, I see the alt layouts as even more irresponsible than the "normal" layout, and increasing the risk of injury.

I don't think I ever implied either the player or designers were chuckers, simply irresponsible.
