A friend who is a student Ross' forwarded this to me. It came from a recent newsletter. They thought it was very strange to read.
WE ARE NOT HUMAN, WE ARE DANCER
By: David A Ross via the ghost of X-mas past
Recently, some of you saw me wearing a jacket with bird feathers on it. You asked me what was going on and I told you "are we human or are we dancer." I'd like you to forget that day
Some of you have said that I broadcasted insensitive comments online. If that's the case I'd like to say it has prompted much discussion on issues of tolerance, privacy rights and bullying. I'd also like to say STFU and mind your own business.
So many lives have been destroyed in the wake of the wing chun forum tragedy. A young man now believes he is a wooden dummy. Two guys are stuck together at the wrists. Those two students are now suffering the consequences
of their poor judgment and their families are suffering too.
Many innocent people have been hurt because Sanjuro posts semi nekkid photos on this forum and they are NOT work safe!
I'd also like to say "poo comes from there!"
Sometimes people make a mistake, but not me, I am perfect, TRUST ME
So, how do we make it right? We put Jamieson on ignore (check), we ban LHK (check), we ban knifefighter (check) and we ban hardwork 108 (Aha!)
Do we learn from our mistakes and can they be corrected? Of course not!
Is “I am sorry” enough? No, you must really make it up to me or I will never forgive you. Do you hear me!
The world is not perfect, but fortunately, I am!
Some may go to jail (earth dragon). Some reputations will be tainted forever (Doo Wai). Some will be forgiven in the eyes og the lord (who here we call Gene)
Many famous men and women throughout the world have been caught dressing as ninjas, but it was only Halloween, can't you take a joke?
Yes, justice may bring out the truth in a trial, but playing with large iron balls is also much more fun
This is especially applicable to martial artists. We have been given knowledge and skills that the average person does not have. We know how to dress up and wave our arms around while making funny noises. This brings a responsibility to use our skills most carefully, at the circus for example.
None of this was meant to be taken seriously
