Vinny, DHHQ does instruct to rootflip. FYI.
Lets get some firsthand accounts. So far, I'm seeing hearsay, second hand evidence, and the "common sense" argument even though it's common knowledge that there's no such thing as common sense. Also, even if the community as a whole agreed that it was bad, that would not mean that it is, in fact, bad. It would mean that everyone thought it was bad. Until we have testimony from someone who has interlocked, lost a dread, and did not engage in other damaging dreading methods, SE hasn't presented any credible evidence.
Rastavanny is doing his best to prove that interlocking is not harmful. He's demonstrating using his own hair. The burden of proof lies with those opposed. Find some people who can tell us straight up what happened.
