Title: screws in wood diaphragm

I also seem to recall hearing that nails are a better choice than screws because screws are more brittle. It also seems intuitive to me that a nailed structure would tend to have a much higher damping ratio due to the nature of pullout versus a screw, which is also a good thing.
