Immediately consult FOTH. Lord Duke Luke will be able to clear up any further inquiries.

Hell John, You are more than confused! You told me I was a sport climber just because I chose to go to Rumney the day before I go to Cannon and now you are drilling and leaving chains! The Master will not be happy with you practicing sport ethic!

You are a danger to everyone at the cliff because you practice sport ethic and don't recognize danger! ::)

Recognizing the problem is the first step of your 12 step program, John! ;D

I first realized I had a problem when i started to chalk my feet before putting on climbing shoes........

Good thing  I don't believe in "big book" shit...i doubt FOTH has a section on this

John, you're OLD (which is amazing considering your FA history of death routes).  Sport climbing is the old climbers' Mecca.  It's O.K. to be a sport climber if you're an old fart.  Different rules for old geezers who want to climb at their limit AND continue to get older.  And who wants to climb safe 5.7 trad all the time?  Boring.

Hey now !..easy with the old stuff  (older than me). 8)

I kinda find sport climbing boring, especially since I'm now climbing  4 or 5grades below what i used to...I'd rather just TR something.  Or maybe even go 4th classing in the high peaks.

It's not whether you are a sport climber or trad climber ;D rather did you sport climb in a cotton t-shirt.

Vulgarians don't even wear clothes when climbing with trad ethic! ;)
