Comments like these are exactly why I rarely participate in AikiWeb anymore. If anybody else has questions about what the founder of their art was talking about feel free to PM me, I'll refrain from participating in any more threads.
One purpose of my question was an attempt to get the thread back on track. Obviously, I have failed.
The apparent lack of moderation action in regards to some of the comments here has convinced me that this is not a place where we can discuss such things.
