Unhappy e-Budo

Hope this is OK Jun. Does anyone know what happened to E-Budo? I haven't been able to get on it for over a week now.

Re: e-Budo

One of the forum moderators posted on another board that they are having a problem with the hosting service that requires direct communication with John. Given that John is in Iraq, I am assuming it is extremely difficult to coordinate such an effort. The moderator basically just said to sit tight until they can get things up and running again in the (hopefully) near future.

Regards,

Robert Cronin

Re: e-Budo

I hope that things on E-budo get cleared up soon and without further hassle. I wish there was something I could do! It's a great resource for martial artists of all walks...

Re: e-Budo

I can't honestly say the same.

For getting involved in some politcal discussions (certainly not in a trolling way,) I was subject to the most vitriolic torrent of abuse which, as an adult, was not only unacceptable but beyond the codes of conduct for public forums.

The entire 'general' and 'off topic' parts of the forums were filled with such positivly sulphuric vituperation that common decency was not to be expected.

Re: e-Budo

Mark are you sure it was e-budo. They usually jump on that kind of behavior immediately. It is screened pretty closely. Now if you are talking aikido journal they don't seem to screen that as closely. There are a few trolls out there that make things ugly-I too have been attacked by some as well. They seem to stay off this site lately.

E-budo does have a column or two for questionable martial arts or instructors who inflate their credentials. That can get pretty ugly.

I miss the laughs from the Baffling and Bad Budo Forums...

Re: e-Budo

They weren't my favs, that's for sure. But there was a lot of excellent information in the koryu and Gendai forums. I can't speak for he ninjutsu forums, since I don't really read those and wouldn't know. The history forums had lots of good info too.

The general public forum was a little rough at times...and some of us spoke out about the trash that goes on there. Oh well, a perfect world has yet to be found. The bad budo etc. forums do provide a needed service...some frauds need outing. In the non-ninjutsu related bad budo threads, I found that people generally handled themselves relatively well.

I don't think this forum needs a separate area for bad budo. There are other boards that already do that, and when something questionable comes up in the existing areas, people seem to deal with it just fine. Polite but honest. I don't think it needs to be a focus...just deal with it when it comes up.

Re: e-Budo

I discovered yesterday that e-budo is back up. Just thought I'd let you know if you hadn't caught it. I am not sure when it came back. Sorry if this was announced already.
