I have requested to withdraw as moderator of this group.

I may contribute a story or two as time passes, but will not as a moderator.

Thank you and best wishes to all,

Don't do...if nothing else, we will lose some insight on whom to blame if we screw up. A calm voice is one to be listened to, not disregarded.

Very sorry to see a quality mod resign. Please do not let the potential misuse or lack of understanding prevent you from dispensing your knowledge. As you know, the way of the world is often that information is subverted for purposes that it was not intended for, rightly or wrongly.

However, it WILL make it into the correct hands and minds. There, it will make the difference. Have some peace, my friend.

Dang Victor, it's a shame to see you withdraw as mod, but I understand you have a life outside the forum. Good luck my friend.

Aww...there goes my claim to knowing a famous person. Now I have to say "I personally know and have trained with the former moderator of martial arts tales and stories".

ahh, well. life goes on i guess...
