If you need to look in a mirror after reading, you have a problem. I just read the damn book.
You clearly need to look in a mirror when you judge other people.
The burden of proof is on YOU. If you say someone is correct, bring proof/support of why you think/feel so. Otherwise, it's blatant cock-fighting with no solid evidence, and as such, utterly worthless.
What evidence do you have to state otherwise than your own personal opinion?? So clearly you have not thought this through that much either, because one is not able to judge a book by its cover before reading the pages within.
Whenever I read any author about any topic I take seriously, I do thorough cross referencing with other credible sources. IMO, Wikipedia and google do not constitute as such. Historical literature on the subject might be a big help. Forum discussions might be helpful, but that can go 50/50.
I don't see you bringing any proof, internet or literature-based. As such, I have no reason to take you seriously. Bring something of value, or stop bitching.
If you question any serious Budo historian about NINJA history, they will either give you an annoyed look, or tell you that ninjas as you think of them, only came up after 1940's. Look into this if you want. I won't do your work for you.
Unless you have solid fact behind your statements, you are only fighting a loosing battle.
You mean like Ashida Kim?
Each and every person is able to express their own personal opinions and have their own unique views but to go round converting the masses to dislike (hate) one particular author, whom I might add has actually accomplished something great by being able to write so many popular books
To ellaborate, any jackass with a pseudonym can write a book. How do you know I haven't?
And making half-assed insinuations about a poster who's opinion differs from yours somehow makes your view point more legitimate?
is a person lacking self confidence and allot of maturity.
That, my dear friend, is commonly referred to in the English language, as sarcasm, although I don't think it's my place to lecture you in English, as I am ESL.
And one more thing...what the hell do pirates have to do with this current topic?? Yes I am aware that there is a constant dispute between Pirates and Ninjas, but how is this relevant???
**EDITED SOME MORE**
I should also point out that you failed to address Mother Lung's credibility, i.e. using a pseudonym and claiming a PhD, which can not be verified.
