Richard, are you deliberately misinterpreting me!

Of course you can always exceed any record for "most methods" by ringing for
longer. But, for a given length, I think pretty much everyone would expect
that "splicing" is how you squeeze the most methods into your peal.

If the MC are saying that you are able to ring more methods to a standard
peal length by NOT splicing them, then I really don't know what to think.

And, I ask again, who noticed at the time that the word "spliced" was
missing from the Great Barr peal report?
