"useful only for causing pain rather than inflicting anything more than superficial damage"
...spoken like somebody who's never seen what an improperly wielded single-tail (bullwhip) can do to a person. Not going to change it in the article text because I've got a headache, but yeah, you can do a lot more than 'superficial' damage, either because you don't know what you're doing, or because you do.
Then please edit it later when you don't have a headache. I didn't know this, and I'm sure plenty of readers would be interested in these kinds of details on the main page.
I agree with the OP, single tails can be quite dangerous when used in certain ways... though not as dangerous as say... a sword. I'd also like to point out that a whip wrap is a pretty effective form of bondage under certain circumstances, due to friction, though I do think the OP was a bit rude.
