Let me say that theft is one of the sincerest forms of flattery. I'm glad you think so much of my posts that you have taken them -- without my knowledge or permission -- to share with your friends and readers. In the future, at least have the courtesy and decency to attribute me, or link back to my blog rather than leave the impression it is your own work.
I am prepared to entertain calm, reasoned debate if you believe a fact or opinion or analysis is incorrect. Telling me, "You suck, and your martial art is a joke" will only amuse me. We may make fun of you in return, or we may simply ignore you until you go away. Being ignored is worse.
I also encourage you to research anything that interests you. As I am always researching my interests, I find my opions are always changing. So don't expect me to say exactly the same thing all the time. I should be consistent only in so far as the best information available always me to be.
Thank you, and we now return to regular blogging...
