Not offering an opinion one one thing (the "who and the what"). Offering an opinion on a different thing (the purpose of the site).

A person who had once owned cats, or who'd seen a great many of them had had the opportunity to observe them at length, might be qualified to mod a cat site. What's your point?
I gave an example of a cat forum (i joined one lately after purchasing a cat) how would you feel if the mods and veterans on the site didn't even own cats??? it would look totally fucking Bull ****, incidentally the name of this site.
They don't. I've rarely discussed how much I train (once, on Sociocide, as far as I can recall) and I had some pretty stupid **** as my style field back when I first joined. Mods didn't care.
Now, i would not make a big deal of it by posting if the fucking mods wouldn't have made such a fucking big deal over your stile field and how much you train and all in the first place.
On what basis did you make that assumption?
I always assumed that someone like me a hobbyist at best with 11 years of boxing and kickboxing a year of judo and 4 years of KravMaga that trains in boxing 3 times a week, spar, lift weights, jump rope punch bags etc. is the average, the norm for the noobs!!!!
Again, why do you assume this?
So when a cocky (am not talking about TS specifically) Mod talks i assume he is either making a living from MA like Omega or at least a serious pro in his field even if it is some traditional stile
otherwise why da **** is he such a fucking prominent player here?
If you make assumptions, prepare to be shocked. That's on you.
I was very shocked to place faces and ability with names of some of the people here.
Would you rather cocky people didn't justify their cockiness?
Some justified their cockiness and some made me grimace.
Met most of them, have you? That's a lot of people. Guess you'd be in a position to know, then.
I am not saying that automatically if you are a fighter or a very skilled MAtist you should be treated differently here, because lets face it most actual successful fighters (are not here) are stupid shallow uneducated people.
If you don't actually meet and fight them in person, where do go expecting any such thing?
BUT if you do hand out positions here and if people talk a big talk (and a lot do) i would at least expect them to be much better than I
Only if one's lifespan is few years in length.
a hobbyist (no TS a few months of MT does not make you one...after a few years you can say this is a life long hobby).
Seriously, ersatzb, I'm curious: given all these dubiously-based assumptions and expectations you have--and all the shock you experience when they don't appear to be met (because they're dubiously-based)--what variety of logic do you operate on? It might be worthy of some kind of neuropsychological study.
