Torque wrenches that don't work in reverse...are still called torque wrenches.

What do pry bars have to do with anything?

Generally, no. However, in response to your silly suggestion to use a torque wrench to loosen spark plugs, the obvious was politely stated.

You can be as riled up as you'd like. Fact is your bad "advice" could lead to some poor schmuck snapping a seized plug in the head when they grab a 3/8 Crapsman clicker that is badly out-of-calibration and not realize how much mechanical leverage is being applied to a very brittle part.
