To me, all this sounds like is that you use a sandstorm team and you're defensive over it's legitimacy. Essentially all your post is, is recycled points about Snover defense in a poorly constructed manner of which have already been dealt with. Hippo is a reliable enough stealth rock layer to be able to continue to lay stealth rocks throughout the game. On top of this, the high paced offense of sandstorm teams provide little room to actually get a rapid spin off. Most spinners are also physical so walled by Hippo which can re-lay stealth rocks (bar Staryu, of which is spin blocked by Frillish and checked or countered by Lileep.) Please read the thread again because I've already mentioned that I am aware sand will not get banned.
