To be serious though, if the trad ethic is to climb a route in as good a style as the 1st person to lead it or better, no chock stones should be in RE if Joe Brown didn't place one.
In Climb Magazine, there was a letter in issue 1 or 2, where Jim Perrin has sent in a picture of Joe Brown on the 1st ascent with no chock stone in the route.
Seems weird to me that lots of people wanted a chock stone to go 'back into' the route.
