Is anyone else bothered by the attitude that "anything in the code is okay 
with me"?  In other words, if an existing building has a sheet of plywood in 
each corner and 1/2" anchor bolts @ 6' oc it's code-compliant and therefore I 
shouldn't even mention to an owner or potential owner that maybe it's just a 
teeny bit less than we would like to see in a building?  Ignorance is bliss? 

Just a thought.
