    1. What I did was wrong. I was not in a position to second guess people who had been here doing the job far longer than I. I had no business mucking about the investigation.

    2. If I in any way by mucking about caused harm or ill will, then I apologize for that.

    3. If there is a way to make it right, just tell me.

    But I feel real foolish for caring at all about this jerk.....
    Feel bad? Feel Foolish? No one should ever feel bad or Foolish for giving someone a chance to redeem themselves.

    The best part of this thread?

    I remember another board claiming victory because, they banned a certain person...*snicker* and we didn't.

    Hmmm.......I'm curious how that looks right about know.

    Yeah, I was thinking of Kaith as well. His motives were nothing to do with mercy and compassion, and everything to do with sweeping a turd under the rug.

    The fact that sweeping a turd under a rug only makes things worse makes the metaphor even more apt.

    Let me be clear then, I would find it a PERSONAL offense were he to claim Judo rank again. As such, I would take a VERY PERSONAL course of action to correct said claims.

    The only thing you should feel foolish about is feeling foolish, you did nothing wrong.

    OK boys and girls, I went through every trainer and group instructor in the entire St. Louis area, that is with or has been with ACE, and I can NOT find where he is or was ever a trainer in any capacity with ACE. I tried every permetation of his name and nothing. I am still waiting to hear back from ACE Professional Services, but as of right now, he is a NO GO on ever being with ACE. Once I hear back form Pro Services, I will let you all know.

    IF they confirm it, I will inform them of Mr. Morton claiming to be with ACE and I will let Pro Services take it from there.

    As far as having braces and being a trainer goes, all you have to do is be able to design workouts and be able to pass the written exam and written simulation. With ACE they pride themselves on having an extremely hard written exam(not actually that hard, IMO). I just don't see anyone hiring him with his poor physical conditioning. Not the braces or knees, but the fact he appears to be very out of shape.
