Crimp-and-tape vs. wirenuts -- for hots?

Two things:
If you can remove a crimp using pliers, it means the crimp wasn't installed correctly in the first place. If you need to change a connection, you cut on either side of the crimp. If you're running new wiring, you leave extra in case you need to cut out a crimp. If it seems that existing wiring is already too short to allow cutting later, use wire nuts.
