Well then label me an idiot. But that's ok; I don't know you, you don't know me, so it really doesn' matter does it?
When it comes time to replace the drain basket, garbage disposer what ever, I'd much rather remove putty than having a boat load of sillycone to dig out. Call me what you want...but I'll NEVER (unless directed by the mfg instructions) use anything other than putty, tried and true and when installed properly, it'll last the life of the fixture.
