    I believe that it was part of a Samurai's job description. :)

    Ha ha, trying to start arguments again I see. I'm not defending him, I'm stopping the thread from being locked because of 'fraud busting' which isn't allowed here. You might want to think about libel cases, what is said on the internet isn't immune to court cases and I'm sure the site doesn't want to get involved in being sued. You might also want to think about that before calling him a predator. He may be but you need to watch what you are saying. I'm sure you will ignore me which is fine but don't whinge when there are consequences to your fraud busting.

    I wonder how much of his claims of expertise is the Dunning-Kruger effect. Just because he doesn't meet your definition of an expert/master, that doesn't mean he doesn't meet his own. The point made earlier about the difference between someone who is lying and someone who is deceived (even self-deceived) is significant to the ethics of the situation.

    Yeah, I'm not sure why the system changes that particular word to "love" and all others it captures to "****". Annoys the love outta me.

    I demand appropriate auto-inserted euphemisms for all censored verbiage!

    I'd prefer they all be wholly inappropriate, Tony, but entirely unrelated to the original word.

    "In the context of defamation actions (libel and slander) as well as invasion of privacy, a public figure cannot base a lawsuit on incorrect harmful statements unless there is proof that the writer or publisher acted with actual malice (knowledge of falsity or reckless disregard for the truth)."

    Jake Mace would have to prove that Martial D knew he was not a fraud and intentionally disregarded that truth.

    Martial D or anyone else is allowed to voice or write his opinion of Jake Mace without it being considered defamation.

    The problems for the website would start before the case went to court, the person who felt he'd been libelled would have his lawyers send letters asking the comments to be removed, do you think the website would even want that small step? There is a reason for the no fraud busting rule, to prevent anything, even letters from layers happening. If the person who felt he was being libelled had enough money he can still sue whether or not he stands a chance, the site would have to fork out for lawyers to defend even a specious case.
    Jake Mace could go back to Canada and sue from there, Canadian law is the same as UK and not the same as US law. 'Libel tourism' is something that is happening more and more now, cases where something said in the US but seen in the UK can be heard in a UK even when the person suing isn't from the UK! There was a Working Group set up by the UK's Dept. of Justice to look into this and seek out ways to deal with it. So, there is reason to worry even if you think there isn't.

    I vote for elaborate, antiquated, humorous euphemisms, randomly selected from an extensive list.

    Ex: I didn't type "love", I meant playing the blanket hornpipe, inserting my matrimonial peacemaker into your Venus's honeypot. This coprophagous forum won't let me write what I mean. This is bovine scatology!

    The destruction isn't the defensive technique though, the parry with his left arm is. Destructions can be applied in multiple ways from multiple angles. One way that a destruction can be applied is the way he did in the video. You parry the strike into the elbow. Without the the parry that particular destruction would be difficult to pull of, hence is why he parried.

    He'd make a good Power Ranger, but if his videos on YouTube are anything to go by he doesn't know his **** from his elbow when it comes to SD.

    Yes, I don't get that either. If he punches you in the face, it hurts. Your face doesn't ask for documentation to show he can trace his lineage back 500 years to some Chinese guy no one living even knows.

    If you are not here to learn from the people who know better than you, why are you here?

    It's certainly not to contribute anything meaningful, as the way you talk about MA makes you sound like a 13 year old whose MA experience consists of masturbating over Bruce Lee films and playing Street Fughter II Turbo Edition.

    Tugg Speedman: There were times while I was playing Martial D where I felt...
    [pause]
    Tung Speedman: ...retarded. Like, really retarded.
    Kirk Lazarus: Damn!
    Tugg Speedman: In a weird way I had to sort of just free myself up to believe that is was ok to be stupid or dumb.
    Kirk Lazarus: To be a moron.
    Tugg Speedman: Yeah!
    Kirk Lazarus: To be moronical.
    Tugg Speedman: Exactly, to be a moron.
    Kirk Lazarus: An imbecile.
    Tugg Speedman: Yeah!
    Kirk Lazarus: Like the dumbest mother ****** that ever lived.
    Tugg Speedman: [pause] When I was playing the character.123
