I sympathize with the blowback because I think the message has come across as a bit pushy at times.
I think the "pushy" feeling comes from replies to people who push in a passive aggressive way, haha!
They dismiss valid statements with no proof or experience and then up the ante when a reply comes in. They don't know what they're talking about, but they just love to talk.
If "put up or shut up" is pushy, then people have just lost touch with the real nature of budo.
Best to you.
