    is you giving yet another example of why:

    Spin away, but there is no way this site ever stood for putting Sambo in the style field and then not training Sambo. Nor has it been about putting Sambo in the style field and then training at some no-contact non-alive place with Sambo written over the door. Nor has it been about staff doing either of these things.

    JKDChick just gave me permission to quote her. Here's the conversation... I don't want to cut it up.

    Because, yeah, I agree.

    Me: Yes, that all I'm saying. That and the site has stood for no BS in yourself and others from the beginning. Is that a fair characterization?

    may I quote you?

    JKD:Okay, cool. My thoughts on this are that anyone who leads had better at least understand what they are leading. If, say, i got injured and couldn't train, that does not negate my past experience.
    But if you never train alive, you're never going to offer anything intelligent to say

    Me: thanks. Quoting you OK?

    JKD:Yeah
    Cool
    Thank you for being involved with this

    Me: It is my pleasure. you know my feeling about the place, and what it is supposed to be

    JKD:Yeah

    Me:do you think my statement "the site has stood for no BS in yourself and others from the beginning." is fair
    about the beginnings I mean?

    JKD:Yes
    THAT'S TWO.

    One more and we're done here, and all the keyboard dancing in the world won't change a thing.

    Since my previous statement was apparently too nuanced for IIF:

    The people that we choose to represent the site (Staff, Forum Leaders, etc...) should be representative of the sites values.

    I guess we can start arguing about what those values are now. But I figured training martial arts in an alive manner was somewhere near the top...

    Correct who said it wasn't?

    Why not? Apparently it is all over the place..

    But I figured training martial arts in an alive manner was somewhere near the top...
    Who said it wasn't? I never did. Actually no one did, you fell into the agenda trap. Good on you.

    Oh that's right we now see what nuance you missed.

    YES, because this is the serious kind of fucking up the style field, and not the dance where you put in something you're not currently training. If a mod asks me to change it I'll change it to 'none' or I'll start training.

    I have been reading your stuff for *years* and I still can't figure out what you're trying to say here.

    But I suppose that just proves your point. Whatever that is... LOLOL

    Once again, Matt gives himself a special dispensation. I mean geez, why listen to the mods? After all, some of them don't kick as well as Omo thinks they should. I bet a couple of them don't even train very much.

    So to be clear, you're arguing a rules nuance when you're in clear violation of a sticky?
    Also, by your reasoning all of this be taken into the context that you physically suck in all regards, and your opinion should matter not.

    I'd say right back at you, but you already know it is true. Should I move the goal posts, so it is clear like yours?

    Keep talking. The Senior admin just cleared it as OK. ******.
