Topic - When to use a screwgate?

gdnknf on 04 Apr 2014
I was recently criticised at a crag (can you believe it!?) for carrying my prussiks on a wire gate as it is 'dangerous'. While the unsolicited advice has thus far been ignored, I did start wondering WHY this chap had a problem with it and if anyone else felt the same way.

Just so it's clear, in normal personal climbing I will generally only use screw gates for attaching a belay device or for the powerpoint at an anchor. When instructing it's a bit different.

Where and when do you think screw gates are appropriate/necessary in climbing (multi-pitch or single pitch)?
