Re: Regarding James Smith

I thought "James'" posts were silly and often ignorant. I thought that the action his dojo and instructors took was their business - their house to keep in order so to speak. My concern is that his dojo chose to explain their disciplinary action here. What takes place in their dojo is a private matter and should remain confidential. I wouldn't have had a big problem with them simply disavowing his comments, somthing like "James Smith does not speak for or represent our organization." Whatever disciplinary action or process they followed is their mutual business, telling us about it wasn't beneficial to anyone in my opinion.
