Re: What's your thoughts?
Stripping of rank is one thing. Stripping of knowledge you have gained in my opinion, is impossible. One of my instructors was talking to me about stripping rank and he made a good point, if you earn something it's yours. Too many instructors give rankings and think they own them, his opinion was if you earn it it's yours and no one can remove it after it is given.
Rank can neither be given or taken, only earned.
