    And no... I don't threaten people over the net. It's kind of silly, really.

    So I'm drawing the line again - HERE - and this time, it's one for all and all for one. If there's more flaming from either Drake, BoulderDawg and 1bad65, they all get banned.

    Now we sit and watch to see who is the suicide bomber.
    I know you don't like hear this Boss but, moderate the forums more that's all.
    When it comes to things like politics, religion and MA, things that are very personal to people, arguments get heated up, so you either allow a free for all or you moderate.

    either way it's interesting to see people who claim mastery to become "offended"... personally i think being offended is a sign of personal insecurity and weakness and thus would get in the way of the proper martial art mindset if and when a situation arises, but what would i know.

    I've never been one to moderate that much

    Actually I believe in the free for all. Remember Battle Royales in Professional Wrasslin'? I love those. That's the model I've had for this forum all along. It's only when people start complaining that so-and-so hurt their feelings when I have to respond. It's like refereeing kindergarten sparring matches sometimes...

    Beyond not having the inclination to impose strict moderation, I really don't have the time. I have a magazine and website to publish, research to do, and stuff to sell to pay for it all.

    Drake's right. I am a liberal nutbag.

    Hence they hide rather than be known as adults.

    I would like the definition of "wrong".

    If the forum rules are being followed but one is still offended, for whatever reason, there is always the ignore button. Sheesh.

    yeah I have been LOLed at for giving out my address and asking for people to come visit and show me their superior material.

    My door is always open and always will be. Come make friends or come find out the flavor of the floor in my training hall.

    I'm referring to uki. His claims to moral and spiritual superiority are facades to hide his weakness.
