    There are some posters worthy of becoming yerpeht, retnuheht. You'll know them when you see them, they are the ones arguing boneheaded points.

    No he means the way some members responded to retnuheht after his identity was known. I know where Josh is coming from, but the consequence of allowing unfettered debate on the internet, where mouthbreathers, geniuses and everyone in between can post, is a lower signal to noise ration. Given the site's current popularity with the younger demographic, I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    Kid and adults talk smack on the internet. The question is, are you emotionally mature enough to respond in a reasoned manner to someone flaming you for all they're worth? To someone making threats to you?

    I look at the internet like I look at IQ tests. The second you start to take them seriously*, you have failed the test.





    *Except when the internet takes you seriously, like when they loosened the lug nuts on MTripp's tires.

    i actually agree with coach josh and jnp.
    as a site 'we' should feel lucky having guys on like Retnuhet and Mtripp.
    everyone knows my slightly insane posting style, but even an idiot like me knows when to stfu and get educated, i love Mtripps videos, the way he looks at issues, talks about his experiences etc.
    There is no way in my mind i'd go and argue about ' oh hai wai do you spell bu do sperately' or ther crap.

    These kinda people proved their worth and have exceptional talents, maybe if we're lucky we as mere amateurs could pay attention to what they're saying instead of focussing on something clever to say.
    let alone argue with them.

    Then in time if we're lucky we get to be half as good as them.

    thats not a circlejerk, not not nutriding, thats knowing your place, knowing to stfu and learn something.

    Good post...Who are you and what have you done with Lebell?

    Some people really do have to step back and say "Hey it's the internet, lets all chill and unwad our collective panties."

    It's not just the internet, it's the internet in respect to martial arts/this site.
    Sure it's okay to be critical and not to descend into fandom, but it should neither be a ' zomg look at what i dare to say to a high ranking guy! i'm so me!''

    sometimes its better to be less 'yourself' and just listen up and learn something.
    some guys on here arent your buddies from school but authorities in their field of practise, now if they'd be an authority on classic literature, be my guest, poke all the fun you want and be a dick.
    But these guys are authorities on martial arts and guess what..this is a site about martial arts.

    a lot of you people misunderstand my psting style.
    my 'zomg lol im a pervert' posting style is preventing me from facepalming 2, or 3 times every time i read random threads on here.
    A LOT of people post with authority they do not posess, and in this thread some of em post in a semi argumentative fashion.
    I'm not saying anyone should be submissive, but please you guys, don't **** it up when we do have new people to the site who are high ranking/skilled dudes.

    thats my main point.
    it may surprise you but during training i was always a very serious student, i always pay attention, when the teacher talks you stfu unless you wanna explain it better, etc.
    so enjoy me as im serious for that one time a year.

    ;-)
