Contributing to MABS is awesome
So I tried my hand at contributing to a MABS thread or two, back a while. Got some posts culled for newbie crap.
I tried again. My efforts were largely in vain--not helpful or not enough.
I tried again today, and did something useful. Nothing came of it (yet), but man it felt good. I felt the MABS mission today. </nerdy>
Ah, to hell with it. <nerdy>Fighting bullshido and fraud in the martial arts is awesome.
Psssst....you can do it too! Not by posting "me too" or speculation to an existing thread. Not by starting a half-assed new thread that you'll let die because you'll stop making an effort. Not by trying to smear the other guy in town, and certainly not with lineage wars.
Contribute to an existing investigation, and keep your posts to the facts. Call people. Go places. Do things. Make the internet something more than garbage, more than talk.

You may have contributed something to MABS, but you've failed to contribute something to YMAS with this thread.

I think this is a good thread. How many people have we seen *****ing up MABS threads? Answer, quite a few.[
By encouraging our resident slow learners with threads like these we may yet see the mods become obsolete.
