Re: Request for Civil and Respectful Conduct
Thank you once again, Jun Akiyama san, for coming forth and ably providing reasoned, compassionate and visionary leadership for all of us, and for your flagship, Aiki Web.
We must do much better in policing ourselves, not out of fear of sanctions, but because it is the right thing to do, the Aiki thing to do, and, at the end of the day, what we all profess should always be the right thing to do.
We will have a shining example of what a responsible and responsive online forum on genuine Aikido and Aiki Principles we all deserve to have, when we collectively resolve to work with one another to ensure that this happens.
Love Is High Maintenance. If we Love the concept, and the continued existence of a vibrant and exciting Aiki Web, then we must pay due diligence, and whatever fair and reasonable Price to Maintain it on a daily basis.
Happy New Year to all, and to all, a kinder, more genuine, Aiki Web for 2012 and beyond!
