David Hay is another impotent PADI instructor who just does not get it...

Just wondering if part of your PADI instructor training is having a chip inserted into your brain that makes it impossible for you to criticize PADI. I mean GET REAL. Instructors are no more responsible for the bad stuff PADI rolls out than a pilot is for an airplane with a design flaw (yes, I'm also a fixed-wing and helicopter pilot).
I agree with the person who urged Scuba Forum to launch a new forum about bad instructors. That seems to be what a lot of people want to talk about rather than bad certification agencies and their bad (educational) products.
Anyway, as a PADI rescue diver, please add my vote to those condemning PADI for rolling out the PADI Scuba Diver course. It's definitely a step in the wrong direction by "the world's biggest C-Card seller".
