    Do you see the point I'm getting at here? Heck, this place would be a lot more noob friendly, which was the question posed on Yahoo Answers, if everyone was required to attend a Throwdown before they earned the right to tell someone to "shut the **** up".
    Have you stopped to consider the simpler fact that maybe just maybe Rabbit is just a dick? It has nothing to do with you being a noob or you?

    Unless your initial post was made accidentally because you're not used to your newly found powers of telekinesis, of course you did this for attention. You made a post to be read and reacted to by the reader and to elicit a response. Its pretty much the basis of any internet forum.

    To look at any community, internet or otherwise, from the outside and decide that the response its provoked within yourself means that there is something wrong with said community instead your worldview means that you have cognitive distortions in your thought process. You need to grow(and harden) the **** up.

    Yes, and people also feel they should be coddled and have their hands held when they act like assholes. There is a happy medium that can be found, but no one wants to broach that subject.

    If a guy like Omega was being a dick to me, it's probably because I deserved it. But Omega organizes Throwdowns, has a fight record, and has accomplishments in both the Martial Arts and the Bullshido investigations, while W. Rabbit has only accomplished... posting on Bullshido.
    You just argued for entitlemnt while complaining about it earlier. Oh and W.Rabbit has helped on a few investigations.

    Do you see the point I'm getting at here?
    No, because you used a poor example. I can get you MULTIPLE threads, with this entire argument, used at Omega's expense. Yes, that's me saying Omega has been called a dick. Also, attending TDs excludes people that have fight records, teaching credentials, competitions and on and on. Also, you missed the TD problem of the past, otherwise you wouldn't be holding that up as a form of entitlement to talk trash.

    Heck, this place would be a lot more noob friendly, which was the question posed on Yahoo Answers, if everyone was required to attend a Throwdown before they earned the right to tell someone to "shut the **** up".
    As someone, a BJJ Brown Belt now, basically said once, "why attend a TD when I can train in my gym and use the money to attend a seminar."

    This is paraphrased, but you get the argument.

    Uh, a lot of the "shut the **** up" crowd has already attended at least one throwdown.

    I feel like I have the right to straighten people out from time to time. As others have said I have better ways to spend my training bucks than attending a throwdown.

    It's not so much the lack stomach, it's more a cost benefit analysis between the hella fun of poking fun at stupidity weighed against actually having to sign-up to
    Yahoo Answers.

    Yahoo Answers is like an online version of bath salts. Not even once.
    Dum spiro, spero.
    Tada gan iarracht.
