First of all, that word is not politically correct these days. Not nice.

Secondly, whenever it's possible to do it right, mud is the best method by far.

You would rather use bubble gum to bond the tiles, over CDX oriented the wrong direction as you've stated many times, right?

Oh boy we're not going to go down this road again are we those tile floors still haven't failed yet and believe me you will be the 1st one I will tell when and if they do. I also don't do tile in apartments anymore so my standards has increased.

Sorry about the R word wasn't thinking. I'll edit that.

Alot of people come on here and there issues come from the fact that it tile fails is due to mud jobs. I would never recommend floating or using types like that for tiling.

I have yet to see a failure due to a "properly done" mud-job. Mud jobs do not cause failures. It's the best way to set tiles, floors and walls. But, it's gotta be done right, well, just like anything else.

We use concrete board and Ditra so the floor does not end up 1 1/2" higher than the adjacent room.

Understandable, tile needs a solid base regardless how its done I just wouldn't trust that method on a floor.
