    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Bullshido F'd up the Internet - Thanks!

    I have lurked and posted a few times in a few forums here just for kicks, to see what kind of feedback I got, and generally get a feel for the site.

    Initially I was turned off by the volume of snarky self-referential remarks in many threads. I was brilliantly shat on for a minor mistake (drink bleach, Necro). I looked in different forums and followed a few of the more regular (and seemingly well thought of) posters' writings and thought "hey, maybe there's something I can gain from these guys." I stuck around.

    But today I took some time to read old postings and some of the investigative work that I suppose is the keystone of Bullshido. I have to say I'm duly impressed with the methods and results. I'm learning to sort through some of the "witch hunt" posters, and to skim or skip the folks who don't add anything to the conversation. There is some really really top notch detective work, articles, editorials, and research in here for a person who is stubborn and thick-skinned enough to find it. There seems to be a real collective methodology and enough talented and willing people to put that methodology to use to do good works.

    Which brings me to my title - For a long time I've been troubled by people making claims on the net that are so removed from reality as to be mythological. On many sites these posters are e-heroes - they are praised and honored and thanked for the horse-**** they made up. And when a detractor asks for evidence, well "Only jerks ask for proof. Besides, the only way to prove Dim Mak works is to KILL someone from across the room, duh!" I am thrilled that there's a place where evidence weighs more than CAPS LOCK.

    So thanks for fucking up the internet. And please keep up the good work.

    Yeah, if you stick around long enough to get through the initial **** storm that is inevitable, then you end up loving the place.

    It really does make all the other sites seem like a bunch of juveniles in a big circle jerk!

    Good to hear you get it. You've been pretty good with your posts too; helpful yet not bowing to the consensus just 'cause.

    Now go produce some content and post it!

    This is a necessary skill to get your orange belt here at bullshido, and I think you've earned it. Congratulations.

    It's all about the clinch. The clinch, I said.

    Somebody has to do this.

    Shut up.

    Fag.

    Drink bleach.

    Die.

    Commit suicide.

    Eat a dick.

    Go **** yourself.

    Stop posting.

    Must not fap....

    I'm sure I'm forgetting somebody.

    Ah, **** it, how about a hug?

    If you come from a really big dysfunctional family than this place is going to feel just like home. Especially if you've got a bunch of retarded cousins with Asperger's syndrome
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    We're almost there. This is where I post an image macro in lieu of anything interesting or substantive to say
