[at-l] R&R..the unanswered points....

after reading this thread and its relatives, for many days now, I just 
want to say that HYOH is a freedom.  Like many freedoms there are 
responsibilities that go along with it.  Just as the freedom of speech 
does not give one the right to yell "Fire" in a crowded theatre, the 
freedom of HYOH does not give the right of any behavior that is 
unacceptable in society, including that on the trail.  trashing a hostel 
or singing bawdy songs at 3AM in a crowded shelter are not HYOH but are 
unacceptable behaviors, (not to mention criminal statutes that may apply).
