    This is another reason why I have such little use for the mainstream media...

    William Safire, writing in The Rocky Mountain News, today calls Martial Talk the second worst martial forum on the Internet.

    In his annual review, Safire ranks Bullshido as the absolute worst, writing that it is," a group of self appointed Budo gods who, deservedly, lack a congregation."

    About Martial Talk, Safire opined that we, " collectively must have suffered too many blows to the head to write with such banality". He wonders," just what these people could find to create 1000, let alone 10000 posts, about".

    Safire is no less critical of political sites, calling George Soros "a villain fit to have headed SPECTRE in an old James Bond film" and terming Democratic Underground " the Tower of Babel meets godless communism in a lunatic asylum".

    Go figure...:BSmeter:

    Well he got that much right anyway.

    I wonder what he considers a "good" MA forum? One of the dozens of forums with 100 total posts, all 6 months old or older?

    I dunno, I mean Yeah, I did run out of actual things to say back in 2005, but that hasn't stopped me from adding 15,000+ posts to the site. I think the key is, copy-paste and insert videos from 80's metal bands regularly in between quoting dead guys in powdered wigs. I mean, it made sense, but that might be the head trauma talking.
