Highly doubt it was TV.. and I really don't think he was getting at the "killing" aspect of the ninja. All of his stuff seems to be philosophy derived, no matter how insightful or common sense it was.

I think the kid was just trying to be helpful and share his ideas. Some of you were mature enough to attempt to have an intelligent conversation with him. I think it's a shame that many of you just poked fun at a student who is entering the world of philosophy, emphasizing good treament of others, encouragement, confidence, perseverance, and personal growth.

You may believe he's not on the same level as you, and you may be right, but as was pointed out.... he could be following his age group and be doing much worse right now.

But he was posting as two people, both Sveninja and UnseenSword, in FA.com, posting as two persona's is an offense worthy of a ban.

Then second reason is, he's just a troll, trying to gain attention.

Third reason is, he had no friggin' clue what a ninja is. I don't have, nor do I claim I do, but he had none whatsoever.

Fourth reason is, I don't like people who post as two personas just to gain attention. FA.com isn't a forum created for getting attention. If you're here, expect to contribute or seek guidance, not attention.

He brought that onto himself actually.

He just types what YOU want to hear. I think I've said over a million times when I was younger "I'll treat every person with respect and dignity" then the same evening I was punching someone over something stupid.

Teenagers, you can't really take them seriously unless they're mature beyond the norm.

I'm with Taison on tis one. I'm all for helping and guiding and so on. But this wasn't just some misguided young person that was wrong, or misled or what have you. This was someone who was trying to mislead intentionally.

That is a very fair and valid reason.

Couldn’t agree more. Posting under two different identities is one of the VILEST possible offenses. I shall add that Taison, in addition to doing a great job as a moderator, is also one of the most competent martial artists alive, and an incredibly handsome man, although he’s too modest to say so himself.

Oooops…

Er, I mean, Tashigae out.

None of you would guess I'm also Mattj and Jkogas, It's great that I have friends good enough to lend me their photos and also that I'm smart enough to make sure there's always a reason for peope not to see us in the same place.

But you guys won't believe me anyway so I can just gladly carry on my charade
