Before we go further, Mike Haft, please try those and post your results. In fact, video would be better. Because if you can't do *all* the above, then you're not doing what Mike and Dan are doing.
With the exception of number 3 cos I don't know what you're on about there I'm willing to say I can do most of that, not prettily but I can do it. No I'm not gonna post video because I really don't care whether you believe me or not and I don't feel that having youtube footage of my crappy aikido floating around the internet is particularly a good idea. Say what you like about me not being up to the task, whatever....

Yet, they'll turn right around and lap up everything Ellis posts about the history of Aikido and Daito Ryu.
I don't agree with everything Ellis says either. But I find his posts to be less grating than others, perhaps he just writes in a nicer style. I don't know.

It'd be interesting to hear how you and your teacher fared on #1 through #5 above. In all seriousness. I don't think anyone can continue these discussions until they've tried at least those 5 things. If you can't do them all, then you don't know, nor do you understand what's being said here. It's that simple.
You done trolling now? I have better things to do than respond to this kind of crap to be honest but I thought you might appreciate a response. If you want anything else try a PM, you never know I might reply.
