    Some of you should go outside and run for an hour, then do some push-ups.

    you're telling me to go for a fucking run but you're the ass that started this thread? Besides, I HATE running, push ups fine but fucking running? Can't I at least train or hit a bag or something?

    I have to say, member "attendance" has risen significantly in the past couple of weeks. It's been a long time since I've seen the "new posts" function with more than 3 or 4 pages and the other day I saw there was 11, fucking 11!!! I decided not to make any correlation with this jump and my not being able to post for several weeks.

    No clue and my super awesome avatar is gone too... as is my Forum Leader tag and all the other perks I had. Oh well such is the price for inactivity. Good to see you around Mr. Battlefields.

    Most of those are lurkers... because shitting on new members, rather than integrating them into the community, has become the standard practice for a few people who apparently took Omega's razzing at face value as something to emulate.

    It does appear to have dampened new posters' eagerness to join in.

    Possibly also the Gong Sau and Throwdown lines have been blurred a bit much.

    I've seen much "come and prove it at a throwdown", rather than, "hey you'll see we're actually keen on learning/sharing, you can find out at a Throwdown. Not so we're coddling the deluded, but so we're reaching out - as a community populated by posters who WERE once delusional.

    TD's are ego free, and conversely the Gong Sau is largely about ego, for better or worse. I'd love to do another mean in the bean series, but I'd need to know more than me, my gf, and one or two others would show.
