Why are Rooster Dubbed, and why do you remove their spurs?

Why are a roosters spurs taken off?
There are a number of reasons to take off a roosters spurs.
I am going to mention a few of them here.
Roosters can sometimes get mean. Why leave a spur on that can hurt someone? The spur is pointed and sharp and should be taken off. If a rooster were to hit you with his spur would you want to feel the sharp point, or a short blunt spur? This is just common sense.
The spur is also taken off so the rooster doesnt hurt the hen and leave a sore on her back when the rooster rides the hen.
