Yeah, and everyone should know that in the early days of rec.martial-arts, nobody messed with Mary Malmros for fear of getting skewered by her wit. If I say, "Hey, I saw Mary Malmros on AikiWeb" the old crowd will ask what she said. She paid her dues in the coin of common sense.
You mean the old crowd still exists, in some coherent form? I bailed from r.ma when it got totally silly. Anyway, you can tell the old crowd that I've been borged, heh.
