    What is the orignial intent of rank? Maybe I'm missing something.

    Personally, I don't think I'm deserving of my rank. Sensei says I am so I humbly accept and strive to prove myself worthy and not disapoint. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited when I'm "promoted".

    Why is rank being such a huge deal?

    My experience with Mark is that he doesn't say a word until he's got all his ducks in a row. If you have a proble with his personality, that' really irrelevant.


    I'm still reading back. Who exactly is that? Neil?
    Warchief is a current member of the BOD of USJA. I'll vouch for that.


    Mark does not have his ducks in a row. If he did, he would go to USJA,present those ducks, and be a man and stand up to the **** storm that would likely ensue.

    Because if you look at Nick's promotion record, read what Nick has written here, it would behoove any investigating committe to look further, and then the crap really would hit the fan.
