Re: Aikido Frauds

I would agree with you.
That is the issue that was brought up concerning how to DO this without the lawsuit issue coming up.

You name specific individuals or groups, it can become very tricky.(see above)
You don't name specifics, you don't really warn.
Frivolous lawsuits abound in this country....could a slander case be made out by a fraud and made to " stick" against his accusers/exposers?

As well,
how long before you get the "I can ruin this jerk"(nevermind if it is true) rears its ugly little head?

Just some random thoughts on the subject
