I enjoy playing with strangers, but try not to due to my poor eyesight. When playing with friends, they help me out by watching where my ball lands. I don't feel comfortable asking a stranger to do that for me and I don't feel it's acceptable for them to wait on me to find my ball.
What are the reasons someone wants to change their swing? The only reasons I can think of are
1) Their current swing is causing pain or injury
2) They want to hit the ball farther
3) They want to hit a location (on the golf course) more consistently
4) They want to have more control of the ball (spin, etc)
There are probably other reasons, but I doubt anyone wants to change for the sake of "technique" alone. Technique is a means to an end IMHO.

I think the main reason threads get locked is due to redundant/repetitive posts. This isn't just here but most forums. For the "Instruction and playing tips" area the best posts I see are the ones that follow a "point, counter point, discussion" sequence. Not the "point, counter point, nuh-uh, uh-huh" sequence.
