Right. I haven't been posting here long, so I'm sure my opinion means nothing to some of you grand masters of the internet. The fact that I am new to this site means I obviously know nothing of value to any of you. I'll state my worthless opinion anyway just for the hell of it.
When the heck did everyone on this forum get so conservative and serious about themselves? Half the reason I come here is the entertainment value. Some of us get a laugh from the occasional "furious masturbation" comment and there is nothing wrong with that. If we all "grow up" this site is going to be about as fun as the Mutual of Omaha website. Eat some fiber and lighten up. This website isn't going to be taken any more seriously if we all start prancing around the virtual world like a bunch of conservative jerkwads.
Now, let's all commence being nice to each other. :occasion1
Traditionally, MA involved a lot of sparring and challenges. WC, Karate, Aikido, lots of Kung Fu, have none of that, even though they claim to be "traditional".

I think closer moderation as to what threads in the "Bullshido" forum are started would be nice. We do not need 12 Wing Chun threads to be active, just like we don't need 37 Phil/Dan Webre threads up at once. The other topical areas could possibly also benefit from a little more active moderation.
As far as General BS is concerned: Enter at your own risk.
Complements to Bullshido: The Martial Arts History Project is a shining example of a subforum that is exactly as advertised.
You and I both.

Why? Because she´s 14 and does TKD?

Me grow up? HA!
If anything I make every visitor to this site feel better about themself, because at the end of the day they can say, Well atleast I'm not KM!
Dude, all I have to do is see his name and I laugh.

He didn't let it get to him, at least not yet. And to be honest, while I think most of it was over the top, he deserved a lot of it.
