Simplest will depend entirely on who you ask, what they have or have not used, which hammock(s) they have or have not used, their physical capabilities or inabilities, their mental capabilities or inabilities, their biases, which year they were born in (and which month and which day of the week and the moon phase when they were born and whether at night or not), whether they are left handed or right handed (left/right footed?), whether they are using the system in the summer or winter, and the list could go on for paragraphs.
Asking for the simplest suspension system will get you very definitive and adamant answers from lots and lots of forum members, each one totally certain that the system they use is the simplest, lightest, fastest, easiest to use.
The worst part of the answers is that each and every definitive and adamant answer is totally correct - for the person writing the answer.
Is the answer correct for you? Well try all of the suspension systems vocally and adamantly championed and then you will know the answer for you.
Oh, and let us know when you find it because it may be different from the suspension system used by any other forum member and then we can add another simplest, easiest, fastest and lightest suspension system to the growing list.
Oh another thing - stretch is a function of the materials used and not the knot or splice. So if you want to eliminate stretch, the easiest answer is to avoid nylon (webbing or rope).

In time i want to use the ENO for backpacking and taking along when we use the fifth wheel. I am looking for a simple, easy to use, quick set up suspension, i think i also want a structural ridgeline.
I am currently leaning towards the whoopieslings All-in-one setup. I am not a great knot tier, I use an improved clinch, a double surgeon and a nail knot for fly fishing but i am not really into learning more and complicated knots.
if anyone can point me to something that would be simpler, easier and more stable than the whoopieslings I would appreciate it.
