Re: A word on Time Trained and Ranking

your indignant is noticed. please keep in mind that folks on this forum might have a lot more experienced than you. please keep in mind that these same folks might had gone through various intensive trainings as well. please keep in mind that these folks might actually been there and done it vs folks who have not. please keep in mind that some of these folks are actually head of a system.

since we are speaking in a personal tone, i thought i just throw out my personal opinion. shodan is when you just learned that you actually have a left foot and a right foot, and you actually turn to the right when your teacher told you to go right. i'd admit that my standard is a bit high.
