This thread has gone off topic.
Lets deal with the question od censorship and not personal agendas and attacks.
The internet has opened the information floodgates. There is nothing you can do or SHOULD do to stop it. The internet is an INVALUABLE resource for anyone and EVERYONE, yes including terrorists.
The trafficing of terrorists is controlled by the intelligence services which (OMG) scan the net also for sources. Just because terrorists might buy swiss army knives that does not mean that all the knife shops should be closed.
Just because they may find one post usefull for their end does not mean we should censor the forum. Do you see what I am saying? Just because they may use a really fast car to get away from the police does not mean that there shouldnt be any ferraris or advanced driving courses.
It is unfortunate that people use information and resources for evil intent but the way to stop it is not to ban the subject. This is not only in reference to the forus or even to the internet. IT IS A FACT OF LIFE! BAD PEOPLE WILL USE TOOLS FOR THEIR EVIL INTENT! The way to stop that is not to start censoring and banning things left right and centre it is about educating people and dealing with the sources like the recruiters not the bloody forums! Gimme a break.
Your opinion on this matter is hardly thought out properly and almost laughable. I m sorry if you have to revise your opinion because you are mistaken (I realise people dont like to change their opinion even in light of a better arguement).
A tire iron is dangerous if used with criminal intent. Maybe we should reinvent the wheel
Edit: Also if you want to campaign about censorship on the net then I suggest you get your priorities straight. I doubt that this forum is a breeding ground for potential terrorists and mass murderes, more so than other sites/forums in any case. Why dont you go campaign for those rather than berating us with your preachings.
And do you really think that someone who wanted to learn how to use a weapon for terrorism would actually come to receive training in a forum? HAHAHA. In case you havent heard, some of the 9/11 attackers were trained by the CIA.
Anyway, the reason we advise people to find proper instruction in a lot of the cases is that so they dont hurt themselves by learning from some dvd. Again, I doubt that if I described ANY technique that the person could actually use it. Most of the threads (questions and responses) are by people who have already learned their techniques but want to discuss it with other people who also know of the techniques.
Answer this question, if an outsider comes to this forum and reads all the posts that have ever been posted, do you think that they would be a better fighter? If yes then you are WRONG. If no then your point is moot.
"in the biu gee form of wing chun the arching elbow is on of the techniques that is the most devastating of the wing chun arsenal, it archs from the top in an arching motion and lands as a spike cuttting across the face" The above technique can seriously danage someone, but I would like to see you use it and it working with the information given above.
Quest:can the butterfly sword form be applied with kitchen knives?
Answ: Yesm, you can use a kitchen knife as a tonfa and then wing it with your thumb to ustilise cutting motions.
The above was an actual question and an actual answer. How can me telling him that you can use a knife as tonfa give someone who doesnt know the butterfly knives any information on how to effectively use a kitchen knife? Can you go away now and apply what I advised above? Would it make any difference in the real world, since a knife that is a foot long is illegal anyway?
