For the diagnosis of craniorectal impaction, it ain't difficult. I've examined his tests (his posts) and the diagnosis is clear.

Dr. Dog, I absolutely concur. At first I thought it might be I mild case of transitory gluteo-cephalic edema, perhaps brought on by substance abuse. But after reviewing his entire case history up to this point, I agree that it appears to be a case of severe, perhaps irreversible impaction. Of course I'm not a specialist. Perhaps someone can offer a second opinion?

Excuse me. Post 58 you mentioned it as a diagnosis. So what is it? You're very confusing.

Diagnosis is the identification of the cause of anything. Not everything is medical....

I'm sorry you're confused. Perhaps then use of a dictionary would help?

Ok, you win Doctor. Or Nurse. Not sure. Still confused about you, LOL.

This thread is not about me, and I have no desire to make it about me. I'm happy to answer questions about myself, but if you want to know about me (as opposed to anything that is actually pertinent to this thread) a PM might be better.

Sure, I'll take some. And while we're at it, beer is on me! :cheers:


Yeah, like I said earlier, I'm predicting a train wreck boom sooner than later. :D

Well, it's a matter of chasing up a few old posts, grab a beer and watch a few videos, have laugh and not take it too seriously. Then it's a bit like watching a couple of bucks belting each other around the ears.

Cheers. :drinky:

Chris Chris Chris... I love you dude but why do you get caught up in all this BS with trolls. Let it go. You're Mentor. You're supposed to be above this. Like Dirty Dog, you are being sucked in to the troll world by this guy. You guys are doing exactly what he wants. And you have a problem with me? C'mon man, rise above this ****. I think you can do better. Remember... you're a Mentor, your job is to encourage people. You don't have to prove a point with low life nobodies.

Hey Tames,

While I get what you're meaning, I disagree with your assessment. The role of Mentors here is to provide good examples to the board, yes, but that doesn't mean that we simply let the sheer volume of garbage that Alex (and others) expel stand unchallenged. In fact, I think it would be showing a worse example if I did just let them be. It would be giving tacet approval to Alex's claims and ideas, which really don't merit any such consideration on their own.

With Alex, though, I'm not convinced he is a troll... I'm more leaning towards him simply being rather delusional, and seeking out comfirmatory experiences. When things don't conform to his preconceived ideas (about his knowledge, understanding, skill level etc), he either completely ignores them, or tries to twist around to show that he was mis-quoted, misunderstood, misinterpreted, or some other such evasion. And as long as he keeps putting such ill-informed nonsense out in the forum, I will correct and counter every part of it... not that I think he'll take anything on board, but more for anyone else (especially beginners, or inexperienced martial artists who might not have joined the forum, and are lurking) to avoid them accepting his words as being correct. And to that end, I tend not to respond overly emotionally (somewhat exasperated, I will admit), but more in line with correcting the mistakes on a factual basis. So what would be the better course of action, letting Alex write what he does, unchallenged, and leave it up to the kids who would be taken in by Ashida Kim, Rod Sacharnowski, Bruce Calkins and the like to decide on the merit of it, or to provide counter argument so that the limitations and issues in his words?

But no, I don't have any problem with you at all, Tames. Quite the opposite. I honestly don't know where you got the impression from... but no, I really don't. I just think we have different impressions of what is happening, and the reasons for it (on both Alex's and my sides).

Folks,
Ordinarily, the Mod Staff here doesn't take action in threads they're involved in. However, I think this has gone hopelessly off track, and I'll admit my own contribution to that, and I'll even publicly apologize for it.

That said -- I'm locking the thread. Maybe Alex'd like to repost the premise, with some editing/refinement (like dumping the parts about how he's phenomenal and sticking to the meat about the difference between a fighter and martial artist) and we can actually discuss it seriously...
