Hmm, maybe it's just me but it's the insubstantial suggestions like this that actually kinda annoy me. Think about it like this, if they take all of the "it's only a little thing but..." suggestions and add every last one of them into the game, it would practically play itself.
It's only a tiny little thing, it's not like it'll break the game or cause you to die horrifically if it's not in, so I say what's the point? Granted, *some* of the little changes people have suggested even sound good to me, but stuff like this, to me, seems so insubstantial that there's no point. I mean, think about it, unless you're looking down the whole way you're running the pole will disappear before you actually reach the site of "wire too long" so then you stop, aim down a little and it's probably within just a few feet of where you're standing anyway, as long as you're paying attention and don't keep running for ages after pole turns red/disappears.
