Something has been bothering me for a while. With all the discussion and 
problems with tower leg corrosion, filling with water and splitting, etc. Why 
do almost ALL the manufacturers design the joints to telescope inside from 
above which leaves water able to run inside joints and fill tubes? Why not 
simply invert the connection by telescoping over the bottom section so water 
just runs outside not through the joint. I know there is no difference in joint 
strength or assembly difficulty, so why?
