Who the hell wrote that 'review' of Coda?
Nitpicking I know --
but last I checked, 'expectable' is not a word.
It's either the dyslexic, retarded cousin of 'acceptable' or the writer is ESL or scarcely literate.
/rant off. Sorry.

After reading a bit of that review I had to browse most of it. Too long. It seems that in their effort to be extremely neutral on this issue, they may have given this man exactly what he wanted.
If I was a newb and read that, I would go "Well, the guy is better then me so I see no problem in training with him" instead of "This guy's skills don't mach the level that he claims to have to the point of of said level being suspect, therefore, I should stay away from training with this person."

I have to admit, I really don't understand Coda's whole thought process on this. He has been outed severely (and repeatedly) as an underskilled and underqualified instructor, but he keeps doing everything he can to prove that he has these nonexistant skills. What on earth was he hoping to accomplish by having this "board review"? Was he really expecting to be justified in any way? Then when the review doesn't go the way he wants, he apparently gets petulant and starts sniping at the board members that HE ASKED TO BE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. Seriously WTF?

Good day, John Miller here.
First, Thank you Tom for your work on the compiling of the review, with my eye the way it is I just cant look at it for long at this time (that is getting better).
Now down to business.
I have read over the post in our forum, and while it is very complete, I think we should condense it down a bit, I am working on that now, it is entirely too long.
For the official published story on our site, we will deal with the Traditional Styles Coda Claims any rank in or has given instruction and / or promotions to his students in.
We will deal with nothing that has been assessed in the past unless requested to eval for improvement or the such. In reality, we have no business passing judgement on anyone else anyway, but we were asked so we will do our best.
With that said, I am back to work now and will try to shorten the review up a bit and get the most important facts up front for the reader and include any new information that has come up since the review.
Thank you and God bless,,

I agree with you John that it is to long, but on the otherside I do not believe we should change what someone wrote. It is like Thad said " One person speaking for all ", which in my opinion is wrong. I just posted what you sent.
