    When are we going to stop this?

    How many threads do we need to argue "TCMA vs. MMA"? Have we said everything that we want to say. Is there anything new that we have not yet covered?

    Do we run out of meaningful discussion subjects in this forum?

    I say we shut down every thread that goes that way.

    problem is, every time a new guy joins the forum, he has to bring this up.
    Without being total dix like at bullshido, we can politely him the situation and let him know how to access the archived threads.

    I propose a discussion on the pros and cons of mexican wrestling as a legitimate fighting style for MMA.

    I'll start.

    I know what your saying YKW,

    I say we add an entire 'Kung Fu Vs. MMA' forum and put it at the top of the list. That way it all gets put in there and the 'Kung Fu' forum can be more in depth.

    Seriously.

    I think we should have a link to trollshido.
    It would be like a trap door.

    Just do like the "Is Shaolin Do for real?" thread and make one monster thread.

    Actually, wait until this fades and see how empty this place gets. This seems to go in cycles. Crap threads dominate. Been that way since the KFO days.

    Recipes!

    Hey Bawang,

    Isn't it almost cold enough to eat the Dog? Got any good recipes?

    Is it like 'Dog 2 ways' or?

    I AM cranky... but that is an unrelated issue. I still have some time left over here... but I am on the downhill in terms of service overall.

    If you

    - train TCMA, you will never say that TCMA is not effective.
    - don't train TCMA then why do you want to join in any TCMA discussion?

    I was in Judo forum once. One guy said, "You are not even a Judoka. Nobody care about your opinion. Why are you still hanging around here?" I left that forum quickly after that and never looked back. That guy was right. I don't train Judo and I should not get involve with Judo discussion at all (even if Chinese wrestling is very similar to Judo).

    As TT said, a lot of newcomers (and some old-timers) will always bring up the old argument and think they're being original.

    The key is to just not respond to those types of threads/posts, if we don't like them. The problem is, people always do respond. Then it becomes a protracted argument (not a debate) that goes on for pages and pages. Over and over again.
    It won't stop until we stop ourselves from responding. I'm not saying don't debate; we need disagreements. It's how you learn. But the TCMA vs. MMA name-calling is beyond a dead horse; it's long since decomposed.
