A totally useless anchor is sometimes a good thing.

Why are 8MM anchors not a good idea?

Because they will stretch every time the climbing rope is weighted. The runners drag a good 6 inches on that edge each time.

At least it was only a small child climbing on this.

It is a nice tensionless anchor but why use a carabiner?

100% of the weight is on the webbing and the tiny tree.

Which is not a bad thing, since this anchor is totally side loading the system.
