    Drew is Kungfoolss' BROTHER? Whoa, this could be just like that shitty Jean Claude Van Damme film!

    (BTW, I know you didn't mean genetic brother; I'm being humourous).

He aslo received his higher education by getting a degree from a mail order bible college. His jkd is from Gary Dill, who we all know will sell you your certificate for a fist full of greenbacks. Howe will always be full of bullshido.

    DAD.....?

    Drew, don't feed the trolls.

    One day you'll learn to appreciate 'fools.
    Hell, he's probably one of the best gimmicks on the 'net.

    There seem to be loads of threads where the starter intentionally or unintentionally attracts loads of back-slapping, way-to-go, attaboy posts, very often from people who haven't a fucking clue either who he is or what he's just achieved.

    If I start a thread now saying "Roger Gracie just gave me my black belt", I can bet I'll get twenty posts saying "Congrats" and "Awesome", but some of them would be from people who have never grappled in their lives, or who have never read a post of mine before (ergo, would have no clue if I even do BJJ).
    Wow, that is SO cool that Roger Gracie just gave you a black belt!

    Bravo. Bullshido needs more critical thinkers.

    Not true. Why would anyone congratulate you? You're...

    (Just kidding)

    I don't see what's wrong with that type of reaction, BC. Sure, the guy may be full of shit, but many of the posters said, "Well, if you're not full of shit, good job." Don't you think coming out of the Bullshido arena is a good thing? Thus a reformation would be worth a positive sanction, yeah?

    I could be wrong, but I think that sort of accolade encourages position action. There's a benefit to being on the right side, you know? If a long-time poster here, say, Omega, suddenly and seriously claimed to shoot energy balls out of his hands, no one would post, "Hey, attaboy!" The community would react negatively.

    I can't say it's suprising or stupid to respond warmly to an admission of Bullshido. You know that "Scratch a cynic, and you find a disappointed idealist" saying? I think that's the nature of Bullshido. We don't want to find all these martial artists full of bullshit, we like martial arts. We think they're super-keen. So when we find so much of MA to be bullshit, we're disappointed. In that disappointment, you find Bullshido, an attempt to root out nonsense in MA and keep things clean, so we can be happy with our hobby/profession/toy/interest/whatever.

    Personally, I think Kungfoolss is a total dick, but I get the sense of what he's saying.

    Last year or so, there have been rather a lot of threads that go haywire by virtue of a communal sheep mentality which is often given momentum by a mixture of noobs and old heads.

    A good example of this was all the Attackproof/KCD/Perkins bullshit.

    Not to knock bullshido.net, but a lot of this comes from thinking we (as a collective) are more important and significant than we are, and from too much "personality" from the more regular members. Some noobs want to associate themselves with them and just jump on bandwagons.
