Forgive my "road rage". I think past performance will show that when someone has a question, however obvious, I have been among the first to volunteer a helpful and honest response. No-one starts out knowing everything, and one of the things I find most valuable about forums like this is the ability to learn from those who know more than I do, and to share my knowledge with those who know less.
I've never been to LC, and I have no opinion as to whether it should remain "off the books". But I've been to Gunks.com, and I do have opinions about the local ethics here. Not that my opinions are worth much, but I've been a member of the climbing community here long enough that I don't mind sharing them. I did not do so as kindly as I might, but I made my point, so I'll leave it alone.
