They need to start adding washers to the stem bolts.

I didnt even think of it as being a problem? Have you run into an issue? If a few off of an older stem are used does it create an issue with not enough bite on the threads?

It just gouges the comparatively soft aluminum unnecessarily when washers are not in between the bolt and stem.

All the stems I've owned have washers if I recall correctly.

Correct. Washers just make it that much better, chews up material without, but with does not, along with smoother tightening-loosening.

The Push Mulville is my favorite stem. Just be careful not to over torque as I’ve seen the top caps break from that.
