I think your approach to the idea of evolution is wrong.
So what context would be right then? My understanding of "evolution" is change! Change is fine when it benefits the majority, but if it only benefits a minority it is not a good thing. Insofar as inclusivity, I have addressed this elsewhere in this thread. Furthering our sport is not up to the older or younger members, it is up to all members! Having rules & observing them is an important part of furthering our sport. With this in mind I think your approach to this issue is wrong. It seems to me we are not going to find any common ground, so I think we should agree to disagree!!
