If you want an answer to your question of why I think the advice is bad then I'll tell you even though it makes me petty minded.
Firstly I value this forum immensly and believe that people should be able to visit this site ask a question and get good correct advice and as a result of this and the fact this is an open forum we should be able to challenge suspect advice.
Nearly everyone advise Mr-d to use NGK plugs except yourself and your advice was backed up by your experiences with car engines!
To me ribbing isn't about going to sea it's about coming back and all effort and thought must be put into the reliability of the engine so advising to use sparkplugs that corrode quicker is surely not the way to go. Obviously safety ekwipment is also vital
