    Default Too many forums!

    E-Budo members and admin,

    please, what is the deal with the excess forums? There are only around 2 active threads in each, due to members being spread too thin among what they wanna talk about.

    Clean it up, please! There's no need for 60% of them.

    I enjoy the "New Posts" feature. It allows me to survey the activity of the entire site since the last time I visited.

    I only use the "new posts" feature. This frequently leads me to stick my oar in places I have no business (Karate, SK, the ninjers... ). It's fun!

    E-budo is not only about new posts, its about the archive of posts we have. That is why things are going to stay the same.

    Use the new posts feature and you will be fine. Of course, there is a secret forum that you don't have access to. It tends to be a bit naughty in there, and normally only men venture into it.

    Simplex,

    You would be surprised at the all new features that have come with the recent forum upgrade. For example, there is an icon (like two arrows) at the far right of all the main forum headings. If you click this, you can shut off the entire block of forums. So, if you want to feel 'exclusive', you only have to see the forums that you want to read and you can ignore the rest.

    Ha. That's the ONE forum I kept pestering Mr. Kohler to let me be the moderator of while you were away. I told him that sometimes you naughty boys need strict discipline from a strong woman to keep you in line.

    Default Dear Dojo Dominatrix

    Dear Dojo Dominatrix...

    We ran into a problem in training and wanted your advice.

    Recently while training in hojojutsu and one of the particulary tricky ties where maintaining the correct diamond pattern is so difficult, my training partner was screaming out the correct safeword, "sea dolphin" but since we were training in a traditional Japanese art at the time, I felt she should have used "Umi no Iruka".

    After asking the local nawashibori groups, who all looked at us like we were nuts, the other gimps, err, students, wanted to ask the sage advice of you. Scott Irey feels that the spirit is the main thing, but the language used is important to help instill the correct spirit, but in advanced gim... students, the language used didn't really matter.

    Do you feel that not using the Japanese language in cases like this is OK? We feel that not using the Japanese terms in training causes one to lose the cultural connections which attracted us to training in the first place. Please let us know what your position is in this situation. We have 12 bamboo rod lashes riding on the answer!

    Eagerly awaiting your reply...

    Impertinent boy. Such an impudent question has earned you an hour bound in wet cotton sheets, stretched out on a plank while a very fat man squats and eats large quantities of pickled cabbage and garbanzos, his naked buttocks a mere inch from your nostrils.

    And just when you think that you cannot bear another moment, he'll...

    Oops. Wrong forum.

    Not to interrupt the Dojo Dominatrix, er, well, okay I am interrupting her.

    But, wouldn't his really depend on who's buying the best Scotch for after class drinks? I mean, we wouldn't want to flog that person, would we?
