every other non-normal type move like it get SE effects on types weak to it?

Like, toxic spikes does toxic damage with only one set of spikes on fairies and grass types. Leech seed does double damage and absorb to water, ground, and rock... I can't think of any others right now, it's late.

Eh? Ehhhhh? Purely hypothetical, I don't actually mind stealth rocks much.

SR nerf. I like how it controls things like Volcarona but it screwed too many Pokemon
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

Please explain what pokemon aren't used solely because of a weakness to Stealth Rock, rather than other glaring deficiencies in that pokemon's movepool, stats, or typing.

Scyther would be perfectly viable if it didn,t lose 50% health to stealth rock, at least with Gen 5 move tutor support. Scizor would still be better most of the time, but Scyther still has technician, plenty to abuse with it, and good stats.

I don't normally bother posting on any of these "Which is better, or lets debate some arbitrary rule, or nerf this, or hack that" but..

Scyther - LOLWUT?

100 less BST
Far inferior set of resistances
5 weaknesses instead of 1?
Machine meat and Blood in an intimate relationship
The new superior more effective then all the preceding

I'd rather more options to get rid of it, besides rapid spin and haze.

I hate the idea of Stealth Rock.

Hey guys, let's make the game more dangerous for Pokemon weak to rock for no reason at all! :D It's not like almost every team has a rock attack on it already! Good plan! Great discussion everyone. Raises all around.
Though the fear of death is a common one, the fear of life is a more rational one.

Scyther is much faster than Scizor and they have exactly the same BST.

Scyther and Scizor have the same BST.
I'm tired of everyone I know, of everyone I see, on the streets and on TV.
