I have a large amount of respect for the people I train with, both my senirors and the beginners and everyone in between.

But, I'm a gregarious, openly comical guy, who would much rather run class with people lauging and commenting merrily, with occasional sparks of intensely serious talk and demonstration, than the opposite. So, I'm intentionally on the less formal methods.

That means that our relationships aren't as formally-bound as the traditional perhaps, but then again, I don't think any of my students wants to assassinate me to gain advantage for himself/herself either. Our society isn't set up that way.
Dear John,
You never can tell.Maybe there is a conspiracy to send you to Nirvana!! Why not hire a food taster as a precautionary measure??Beware the Ides of March[finishes today].Cheers, Joe.
