Do you ask questions too?
Personally, I don't like it.
Let's see, we listen to the senior people (just a handful) discuss various topics, then we can either discuss their views in another thread (sort of behind their back) or start a new one and maybe they'll respond (again, sort of behind their back).
And the comment about not entering the forum if you don't like it ... right.
Although I have no problem with the content of the forum - interesting reading so far - I think it reeks of ego which supposedly has no place in aikido.
I seem to be alone on this one, but that's my opinion. Only time will tell.
