Anyone can read the thread and see that you introduced "nightmare scenario" and "death trap" when referring to cable-actuated disc brakes. The hyperbole is on you, dude.

The front derailleur can only push the chain sideways. The up and down motion of the chain comes from its interaction with the chain rings.
