You might want to go into when to pick hollow braid over tubular braid over twist laid over kern mantle as an example of a useful discussion. ;-) The blog is a good idea. My point is that there is a lot of information that folks should understand if they are going to do more than take what's on the rack at the local big box store.
    Thanks for then input. This post was more generic, written for a broad audience. Once I get through the basics I will do a post on hammock specific rope. There are definitely many who are more well versed than me on hammock suspensions, but I am hoping I can contribute some of what I know of general rope work. Thanks again, criticism is what makes us better!

    FWIW- I found this to be pretty handy for learning a few basic knots.
