it's a shame and they are a bunch of communists for giving in to the new definition.

Surveyors already use tenths because it's faster and easier...this isn't exactly a new concept.

The only time you need to know the difference between types of feet is when converting between old and new coordinate systems (and not in all states). Not much of a burden.

The change was agreed to many decades ago, and should have happened with the switch from NAD27 to NAD83, but somehow didn't.
