I was poking fun DHR. Your own post implied you only criticise other posts and use quotes to be sure to target the right poster.
Like others I just think the quotes "facility" is clunky.
Busy - the iron mesh is great because it can be cut to size very easily with some bolt cutters and can be bent if needed. I have used it full size attached to posts to mark our boundary with the arable field behind. It is great for training blackberries and also supported pumpkins when I grew them in that bed. It's a lot less visible than normal plastic covered wire mesh fencing so I get to keep my views over rolling fields behind.
I've also bent a 5m x 2 m length on posts round a path to our woodland corner and have some clems and a rose climbing up it. I can see thru into the woodland planting but also feel private when I do, rarely, get to sit on the bench seat and look out from it to the pond garden and pasture next door.
It came in handy too when I needed to put a barrier between the cows and my holly hedge. They were leaning over the barbed wire boundary fence and eating the soft new tips every year so my hedge was very squat and fat. It has now safely reached head height and needs a proper trim!
We cut 2' off those strips to reduce the height and stop the cows pranging themselves on prongs and found those lengths came in very handy rammed up and hidden under the base of the old conifer hedge to keep Rasta the escapologist from wandering off and exploring.
