Again, you are making my point - you did not know anything about lineage when you started, so one paper was as good as any other. You proved exactly that. The accurate information you were able to obtain eventually came only from first hand experience - which took you 6 months to digest (a bit long in my experience - I'm sure there were a lot of signs you just kept denying and/or overlooking for some reason).
No I'm not making my point. If I had asked they would have become defense. These days I'd be able to find all kinds on info on Juko Kai. I would have asked. They would have gotten defensive. In the USAF school, the information is offered on their web site. No questions needed to be ask. And it didn't take me 6 months to figure it out. I started to notice problems right off, but I didn't participate on board like this to know that their actions were wrong. Part of the reason boards like this are so important is that people, absolute newbies, will know what the right questions are and what are clues that you're dealing with a fraud. They'll know by their reaction.

You're still defending being defensive that is telling me something about who you are. If lineage is not big deal to you then don't make a big deal out of someone asking about it. Tell him you unaffliated and leave it at that. Why the thesis?
