I don't see where I've expressed any anger over morality? In fact, I've repeated more than once, in this thread, that I think composters have their place.
You're right. My comments were a bit strong. I apologize. They come out of exasperation with seeing the same comments, using the apparent squeamishness of your guests. So when Multihullgirl calls you out on this point, and you pirouette to defence of holding tanks, I let frustration drive my keyboard:

You and I and others just had this discussion. You got all the same answers, yet you keep going on about "skid marks," etc. This is why I encouraged readers to go look at the history of your criticisms, and the discussion that has already taken place, such as here:

Please do enlighten us on your experience with marine heads -- you're quite right, they do not have to stink if used properly. Just like using a composting head is no more difficult, even for your squeamish guests, than a standard marine head. Lets move on...

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
