Also, ftr, I'm more than happy to interview local browns and blacks to get their input on this situation.

in some ways i feel that any *affiliated* brown/black belt would have a conflict of interest in this case as by openly speaking their mind on the topic, they would risk repercussions from the IBJJF (rank stripping, banning from IBJJF tournaments, etc.) if what the villain is claiming is indeed correct this is a very big deal and should shake the BJJ community to its foundation.
submessenger mentioned being willing to interview local brown and black belts about the issue, and i think that might be a good idea, but i think there should be a clearly written summary of the issue as described by the villain with a timeline, so that these people being interviewed *fully* understand the accusation before they comment on it. i say this because there is an initial reaction by many that the accusation is absurd, and i feel that people who truly care about the BJJ community will take this very seriously once they understand the full implications if this is all proven to be true."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art.

I see that, yet i'm referring to the title "Head of BJJ Investigations" in her sig;
this is one of those so it logically follows.
The miniscule payment is immaterial, and you keep waving it around like it's relevant.
It's conceivable that one might not pursue an investigation with full vigor for reasons other than financial, especially in this context.
How "conflict of interest" has been conflated with "financial motive" is absurd.
The topic at large is the selling/stripping of rank and competition strong-arm tactics ffs.

Okay I'm back just to point out a few really bad developments I'm seeing investigation wise.
1) Posters on the thread seem to be saying that Georgette and the Villain should be conflicted out. Okay.
Your familar with the reality that Bullshido does not have a paid investigative staff, and that we currently do not have anyone volunteering to take over this investigation. I'm looking at you ChenPengFi, do you wnat to take command of an investigation or are you one of those types who tell people what to do from the sidelines.
If there is not someone who will lead the investigation, it effectively dies. That's not me telling it to die, that's how things work on a volunteer staffed board. Chuck once has a post about it "Somebody Do Something" I believe its a sticky here.
As far as anonymous sourcing goes. While I appreciate submessangers offer to volunteer, we are having one anonymous person interviewing other anonymous people and reporting back to Bullshido. The sources don't even post here. The result is with double anonymity the information will be perceived to have no reliability.
Ah, Browning, why aren't you handing the investigation?
A: Because I have two left on my dance card, and I'm no longer running investigations and not taking on new investigations. If people want to pursue this someone new is going to have to step up.
