It`ll never change Van , your too respected and accepted to be ostracised , but too respected and accepted to be allowed free reign .
This I find comical as you do Marcus. Because the answer lies in how people ‘tagline’ themselves by what they post or write in frantic display of horrible underlying insecurities.
Like “ I do this and that_ I can do this and that_ I am tough this way or that way or in ways I don’t even know that I am yet_ I can teach better because of this and that _ AND SHOW US WHAT YOU CAN DO” _ crap.
Last I remember I have never come across as a ‘can do it all’ or ‘Tough guy’ person.
All I have ever done, is to be a ‘conduit’ _ a ‘facilitator’ of evolving and well researched concepts, as ‘voiced’ by well respected field professionals that WILL AND HAVE IMPROVED the enjoyment and ‘efficiency’ of UECHI _ simply by the expedient of ‘continuing education’ and ‘introspection’ _ something that has been not only appreciated by thousands of readers, but in fact saved the lives of a few as per public posting or private emails.
Just ask the question: if Uechi needs none of the ‘reality crap’ I dared introduce on this site years back_ then why is it that the site now hosts Dave young’s forum? A reality forum that’s often at odd with TMA as per his post above ?
So when I see panties in a twist and attempts to curtail my and others’ right to free speech, by either coming on line or sending cowardly emails to George_ I see nothing but weak people I would not want to cover my back in a street fight.
People who know me also know that I speak what’s on my mind, yet always respectful [something of a lost art these days] _ and when it ‘fits’ not so respectful just to shove them back into their miserable hovels.
