Yes, and if this is the argument and point you are trying to raise I COMPLETELY understand. I also agree.Quote:
I baited the **** out of Hiro for sure, but the dude was trying to engage and has been for years. Plus, he's ridiculous.
Still, it has moved from lying about backgrounds to contradictions that do not exist. There are correlations being made that can be made in multiple fashions.
LOL look at this dumb old lady in her wheelchair. No way she trains live. Clearly unsuited to participate on Bullshido, and she certainly shouldn't be allowed to moderate a forum. Can you imagine her at a TD? We'd all kick her ass—and she's an instructor! And she got a promotion only because her students begged the bigwigs in Japan for one. LOL.
Emphasis mine. Is there really anything to argue besides whether there is room for people doing training that happens to be non-alive?Quote:

Hell, I still don't see his point, but I respect Jason Brinn's right to have an opinion on non-alive training because he set up a way to falsify said opinions, and followed through with it. I've been arguing the aliveness thing with Jason for 3 years now. SOME DAY I'LL GET HIM :)
See the quote and initial comment in my previous post (1485) for the concentrated orange juice version of what I believe he is trying to say.
Out of interest, I've noted that there have been numerous unsolicited references to being Jewish by Jews on this thread. I'm just wondering, outside of Matt's (later on in the thread, preceded by many references) reasoning for teaching his kid to stand his ground as a Jew, why there seems to be the need to increase the board's awareness that people on this board are Jewish.
It's genuine interest, I don't care that you are doing it, I'm just wondering if it is a sort of "show of force" that may have arisen since the recent events in the Middle East.
