Plus they can seize up, which is really aggravating when you want to adjust things. I have lock nuts on the lifelines on my current boat and they are seized - It's going to be a job to back them off without screwing the threads.
Some sort of pin is more secure and can't seize.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
