Dear Rachmass,

Wish you'd added the thread you're referring to, I thought I'd missed one of Mr Lee's (in)famous blunt replies and eagerly went a-searching...

I started my reply like this because that is what I get from the forums, others view-points and opinions from people who sort-of share an interest with me (although the range of aikido described is sometimes boggling).

The added bonus is that these views are from people I'm unlikely to meet, have no "baggage" with due to any on-going social relationship with them and consequently I can (hopefully) read their opinions with a more objective frame of mind.

I've also, on occasion, been able to think "great, it's not just me" and have enjoyed the (sometimes oblique) tangents the threads follow.
