I think part of the issue as well is who has what at stake based on their definition of aikido being the correct one . . .
Insightful. If one applies aikido to their philosophy of life, it can be threatening to have that foundation disrupted. Personally I find it uncomfortable, but refreshing when some error is pointed out in my beliefs and understandings that require me to rethink any inconsistencies.

Though, personally, I like what Mark and Tarik have said.
Now you're just being nice.
