Lol I was'nt trying to call anyone out but after doing tires for the past few years you would be amazed at how many people insist you mount their fronts backwards because of the tread direction even after you show them the rotation arrows lol.

Best trick I've found for not pinching tubes especially while hand mounting is to stuff them into the tire and put just enough air in them to make them round out, usually they push themselves deep down into the tire out of the way of your spoons and should still be soft enough to not give you problems getting the tire on, plus it makes getting the valve stem through the rim a bit easier since it pushes itself through, at least enough to get the stem nut on.
