Nice twist, disparaging remarks?

Once again missing the point. How he behaved. It's a martial thing. He didn't go around continuously nattering about others. Unlike some modern folk.

Being so far advanced and disciplined he had more opportunity to yet rarely did.

Thus those who commonly do shows me merely lack of advancement.

Did you miss the part where Koichi Tohei said that Ueshiba was continuously nattering ill about him? Tohei wrote it himself and published it in Japanese, feel free to confirm it for yourself.

Tohei himself, of course, has a fairly public record of nattering about other people in public.
