No, the point is that YOU made a BLANKET STATEMENT as to the need for gutters on EVERY HOME IN AMERICA. This is true in AZ? How about ANYWHERE in the DESERT SOUTHWEST. No one contends the fact that he has ROT UNDER THE HOUSE. If the guy lives in PHOENIX are you still going to give him the same advice? He has a problem because of the "lack of gutters" for 12 years.
