    13. Always remember, amount of posts and level of intelligence do not necessarily correspond.

    I like it, McFu, my contributions:

    14) Do not write in trashing some instructor without providing a link to their website, and if possible you should provide a link to an on-line newspaper article establishing prior misdeeds that you make reference to.

    15) Be prepared to specify what your experiences with this instructor has been, whether you are, or study under a rival instructor, and if you can, or have, visited their dojo to report on what their actual teaching skills may be.

    16) Do not open with a claim that someone is a fraud or fake unless you are willing to back this claim with evidence. For example Frank Dux's Ninja claims were destroyed by a well known Los Angeles Times article in the late 1980s showing that he couldn't tell a consistant story about his past linage or the 'blood sport' tourney. See http://www.teemax.com/busmanartical.html for a nice example of such proof, Busman actually reproduces the relevant L.A. times articles.

    Great suggestions, McFu.

    Is it possible to make this required reading at the time a person registers?

    Also, shouldn't the moderators be filtering this stuff out as part of their duties? What are they getting paid for anyway?

    Did I stumble on a little flaw in the process here? Care to elaborate?

    Is it possible I could get a copy of the moderator job description? ;-)

    3 Members? That may not be too bad.

    Anyway, it is kind of intimidating in here at first. Trying to figure out all those acronyms like STFU, NOOB,... all this talk about men "owning" other men, maybe the registering process could also point to a "Beat Down" primer of sorts.

    Unless that's all part of the initiation...kind of like white belts sparring black belts for the first time. Lambs to the slaughter...

    I imagine you've probably lost a lot of members in that intial confusion...

    I have only seen one or two things deleted on this board- that FAQ is not a suggestion for things to be heavily moderated either. That would be wrong. It's just designed to make it easier for new people.

    'Owning' is all in good fun here, but the STFU NOOB comments are just annoying.

    Osiris is correct though. Its much worse on other boards.

    Crimson Tiger is right let the n0obz have their baptism of fire!!!!!!

    It's an important part of becoming a productive poster plus we need something to laugh at from time to time.
