Allow me to add the perspective of the author a trip report.How is that in any way not constructive to the trip report?
That is a very different question then (for example):"What are your experience with taking a kid on a trip like this?"
Spot the difference? The first will probably get you an answer. The latter will annoy the author, push him into the defence and he will certainly think again before sharing something with you again. With you, and the community you are part of. You might not get all the information you want out of a trip report, but if an author of a trip report feels appreciation, you have a much bigger chance he will eventually check out the technical forums as well and contribute there. Short term vs. long term thinking."I don't understand this. I would never take my kid like that. Don't you see it's dangerous? There are so many other ways to travel with your kids, so why did you do it this way?"
