comment How do I deal with aggressive/disrespectful criticism?
+1; this is solid advice. @JDR I'd also suggest looking through the problem-players tag, in particular these three questions as they all touch on possible motivations for this guy's behavior and provide more advice on dealing with different aspects of the situation.

@King_llama Take a look at the rules for climbing; they use the term "square" to indicate vertical height, as well.

comment Are risks of non-combat death exciting or just frustrating and discouraging?
@HeyICanChan Ah, that makes more sense - thanks! That kind of playstyle is why I mentioned the Necromancer scenario, where the pit doesn't change, but the countdown to the villain completing their scheme also doesn't stop while the PCs deal with the failure.

@GMJoe I'm curious what you'd define as "pure sandbox"; I've played in what I consider "pure sandbox" games a couple times under the DM from whom I learned this.
