    Yet you have been responding to posts AROUND THE CLOCK. And for a couple of days now. And "phone, Diego" is not a legitimate response.



    Yet there are a few off topic fora and even a "classifieds" section. If this were still the case, why are some fora moderated "with an iron fist" while others barely at all?



    Having "Kickboxing" in your style field does not imply anything more than I currently/previously trained in Kickboxing. If you take that to mean they are a phenom or whatever, that is entirely on you. Assuming the person isn't a liar, it should take nothing more than a question to find out about their training and if they are a liar they will likely be ousted sooner or later.
    Dude you have joined a few months ago, maybe take it down a notch? or are you one of those little dogs nibbling on someone being attacked?
    **** it, if this guy can say what he wants about how the site is or should be, i will say my peace. I think there are some moderators that act tough, in a MA fighting forum while they are fucking nothing, that is disturbing and that is exactly why people may think this site is a bunch of keyboard warriors. If you are a leader you need to lead by example. If you are a mod in a MA site you better be good in some MA (i don't care if it is effective). They are the ones that represent the site not i not Matt, them. So of course they are held to a higher level. FFS if you go to a cat forum and the mods don't own cats.....than WTF?

    it's fine to not train. i assume you didn't go to med school, and that's fine. but i assume you also don't hang out in forums for doctors either.
    I am just reading through all these new developments and have not finished the thread yet, but to comment on this:

    Yes, IMO the assumption here, even goal of the site, is for people to be training and if you are not, to get started with it. This is one of the reasons I originally came here: because it was about active training and outing frauds. That is what made this place different. Our user bios ask us to fill out a style field to boot.

    In my experience here, this is why most noobs came here as well: because they needed help with getting good training or wanted to help others do the same. I never saw this site as a fan site.

    Now, is it required to train? I suppose not. But, I would expect that everyone who has a style field filled out would be training that style at least.

    To Omo's point about med school, I have a similar analogy. I used to use the medical library all the time at my old job at the Medical center. And maybe, there would be those who assumed I was a doctor (at time people did). But, my id tag stated otherwise and I always corrected them. By the same token, this was a site for people who train, not for fanboys. Maybe it is us for assuming that, but if you have a style field filled out and are not training, it is on you.

    All the rationalization now does not change, for me, that this site was about active (alive) training and outing frauds (which is part of helping people find good training); That this is what made this site unique. And yes, I believe the same standard should apply to red-namers, active posters, supporting members, etc. Were it not not the assumption that people here were not training this way, or at least being honest about their lack of it, we would never have had issues with the multitude of people we have over the years....and would not be congratulating those who have turned around their game.

    Get it yet you fucktards? You're arguing a non-point. This is and has always been the way the style field is supposed to work. It's not up to YOU to forget you only did BJJ for a month and leave it up there for 5 years by "accident". Give it up and Straighten The **** Out.

    OK, if Phorst says so. I still thinks it's retarded and makes keeping tabs on who the **** has done what harder since I don't have an eidetic memory and/or spend that much time on this board.

    Just fill in your fucking profiles with a bit of your history, that way anyone who actually gives a **** can click on your name and see what you've done.

    Yeah because that's the user experience I'd rather have. Great UX design, guys.

    That depends, do you train sub-grappling?
    What a big silly you are, answering a question with a question. Anyway, I'll be in town for a conference between the 6th and the 10th. The 8th would be best for me.
