Sounds like someone who has never used Torx on a regular basis. Phillips screws are also referred to as "self-stripping", because as they age the heads *will* strip. The tapered tool guarantees it. There have been at least a dozen different "Phillips" screw bit designs that try to solve this problem, but so far the best solution has been to remove them and switch to a properly designed fastener. Torx or Robertson for me, thanks.
