No, you still don't understand. Drainage grates would let water and lava through even if it were there. It just wouldn't let players, mobs, items, etc. through.
If he doesn't understand, I don't understand, since I understand, and don't know how you misunderstood him.
We know that a drainage grate /block would let water/lava/items through *(according to Nih's idea) and he wants Redstone to be able to toggle the block (on)(-lets water/lava/items through) and (off)(does NOT let water/lava/items through)
so, how he doesn't understand that grates let it through if Redstone could turn it off doesn't seem to make sense, how can something turn something (off) if it can't be (on) to begin with?
This would allow for even more elaborate traps, and devices, (corridor with lever that says "Vault Door", that actually drops lava on them, and locks either side seems rather devious :biggrin.gif:)
or Have I misunderstood what he misunderstood that only you seemed to have understood his misunderstanding? @_O
