Anyway, the reason is personal growth, or to play in a combat lab, or to meet and train with other martial artists. Going for e-rep or little tags is just asking for some ridicule.
Like, I am not upset, but just put this in perspective: I am not some idiot on foodstamps with no life; that journey to the TD, plus the expenses probably cost me more than some of you make per month. What would be my, or anybody's, motivation, to spend that kind of money again on something related with Bullshido, exactly, if the likely result is this kind of treatment?
-well, your motivation shouldn't be a little fist picture, or attaboys from random dudes on the Internet. It should be the experience of being there, not the experience of talking about it afterwards.
-you can wear pink Hello Kitty shorts and pink gloves while avoiding ridicule ONLY IF you are very good at fighting. Omega/Gene Lebell's pink gi, for example.
Now, as I said, I stepped up against a heavier opponent, I stepped up sick; to be a good sport, essentially.
The same I stepped up this year, for other reasons. But, yeah, whatever. While I am on it, tell me why I am paying, what, 20 bucks per months to support the site, when everything I really invest here ends up biting me in the ass?
being a sponsor or a supporting member here is more like being a donor for a charity (without the tax incentives). Sure, you invest your money in it, but are you really expecting a return on your investment? In what way? Its not like you're paying for a timeshare on Kung Fu Island where you'll get your money back after a few decades.

Now, you will think, by Hextor, another one of Rafe's rants. No, actually, I am cool. It's not that I couldn't guess that this was coming. I am just saying, as a principle. Motivate anybody to stay, **** like that does not.
Why, exactly? Last time I checked, this was a friendly get-together, with nothing to win, and nothing to lose. Right?
But, yeah, let me put this a different way round:
Now, here comes a real rant. You know, not that, I am watching "Saber Rider" in the other window. Not that, I am half way through a text, and between pouring more coffee, and urinating, I post a brainfart.
One moment of actually well-thought, carefully measured, and very pure anger.
GO **** YOURSELF, TS.
I treated you as a friend, and you give me attitude?!
How about this, then: As long as you attend any BS events, I won't go, and if I ever come to organize a Throwdown on my own account, you are the **** banned from attending. I was fed up with your behavior at the TD, and I am now. Be weird on somebody else's time, psycho.
And in case you didn't get the message:
GO **** YOURSELF.
personally, i wouldnt have put such a shameful video up. or i would have quit posting as soon as i saw it and go either train properly or do something else with my life. bullshido is a forum about martial arts and fighting, yet you know nothing and cant fight. why are you here again?
jesus im in a bad mood this morning.

WTF? Power trip much? How the **** do you ban someone from a TD? Before someone says something, JFSUSA was never banned from attending, he caused everyone to start backing out of the MEGA. At that point it was cancelled.

I'm not bothering to quote all this ****, but I have seriously a FUCKTON of videos online. Grappling comps, random training videos, random technique references videos, all kinds of ****. I have pretty much zero hate on any of them. I dunno WTF you guys are doing that encourages people to want to e-rape you.
Now, that being said, the reason to put videos online is so other people can look at them. The reason you want other people to look at them is generally so you can get an opinion from those people. So if someone looked at my videos and said 'YOU LOOK LIKE ****! BURN YOUR PURPLE BELT AND SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE DICK YOU SHITFUCKER!' then I would say mission a-fucking-complished. I got someone elses opinion. It's not a particularly helpful opinion, but I'm fine with that.
If you're NOT fine with that then you're right, you shouldn't be putting videos up online.

Like, had it been done to me what was done to Zendo, I would have gone all Cape Fear on people's butts.

Ever see AMERICAN IDOL or any similar talent show on TV? People often think that they're better than they are, and are thus eager to show off how awful they are to the world. We'll never run out of videos. NEVER RUN OUT OF VIDEOS.
Anyway, you're still 'wearing' your TD fist, so clearly you receive some pleasure from your participation.
