You create an ID, post once or twice, edit the most extreme vitriol out of your posts, then declare that youíre DONE for good. Until the next time you canít control yourself and create another transparent ID.

Well, I donít have the luxury of a beard behind which to hide. Iím telling you now, as I would were we speaking in person:. Stop. Seriously man, youíre acting like an asshole, and you need to stop. You have issues with Sifu Brown; fine. Calling me out on an internet message board is not the way you want to deal with them. And Iíve already made it plain I donít appreciate people bringing my children into the discussion. What are you going to do next, post Google maps to my house?
As for me, itís not about the color of the sash around my waist. Read all of my posts; nowhere do I mention my rank. You seem to be the one obsessed with it. As Iíve stated before, I come in to the Dojo to practice, I help out when asked, and then I go home. As you have acknowledged, Sifu Brown is a remarkable martial artist, and I would be a fool not to avail myself of his experience while I can. As for all the rest, Iíll reiterate: I havenít seen it, I havenít experienced it, and neither has my wife, who as Iím sure you know has been a student for longer than I have, and has worked closely with Sifu on many of his related projects. He can be very demanding, and sheís been on the receiving end of his demanding nature, but she has never experienced harassment or abuse.
Thatís all I can speak to Ė our experiences and observations. We donít look to Sifu Brown to be a spiritual leader, a paragon of humanity, or a guru. We look to him for martial arts instruction, and weíre very happy with the results. Thatís all.
You need to work out your anger issues with respect to Sifu Brown, and probably not in a public forum. From the tenor of your (original) posts, youíve got a lot of rage built up Ė itís not healthy to keep it in, but it ainít helping you any to spew it all here. Especially at me Ė Iím not sure what you hope to accomplish by abusing me by name here, other than perhaps to amuse all the other anonymous folks on this board. (Not that thereís anything wrong with anonymity; I would have liked to have had the luxury of enjoying it myself for a little longer. Thanks to you, thatís not a possibility for me).
So, to close: stop. Get help. Leave me the **** alone.
Well said, GB!
