Thank you oldman. I apologize as well.

I more than completly agree fisherman. do you mean free, by not putting forth effort?

Free by not putting forth ant effort, in other words being spoon fed.
Also by not having to pay hard earned money like some of us have.
Things are a bit different when you have to work to put food on your table, pay rent, etc. and pay for your own training.

I guess I thought these forums were for sharing. Just because someone hasn't trained in your style or knows less about something doesn't make them a troll. If they ask the same qustion you guys have answered over and over that also does not make them a troll. One person calls it chi, another person says ki, and yet another person says qi. which one is the troll? or are they all? or are none of them? perspective is what we all judge things from. whether or not they have 6 months in IMA or 25 years shouldn't matter. Not one of us has all the answers so we are all trolls in one way or another. the problem is this. you all stand facing the wall with the sun behind you admiring your shadows, saying see what i did i made a shadow. then one MAN comes along and turns and sees the sun and says it isn't you making the shadow it is the sun that creates the light that you all have blocked. Then in your ignorance you kill the one who tried to get you to acknowledge the sun. going back to staring at your shadow you await the next victim. GET OUT OF YOUR BOX.

There are a few differnt internal martial arts forums out on the internet. Much like here, Everyone in them is very friendly and very knowledgable...typically of xing yi, tai chi, or bagua. On the Flipside....They just don't seem to attract the same childish trolls we find here. They definately get their share of peeps that try and just rile everyone up though but they wouldn't dare post anything as absurd as some of the massive feats of cheese that have been posted here.

This forum has some of the most inane trolls. I think the term "energy arts" might have something to do with attracting them. Maybe a more appropriate term would be "Traditional Chinese Martial Arts and Medicine" .... Rather than attract people by the glorification of energy (which makes little boys testosterone soar and they get pleasure messing with peeps).

similar to one of these...


Its something really ugly that lives in dark places and crawls out to attack when u least expect it. Hence why I carry my troll bashing stick everywhere.

#90420 - 04/06/05 01:12 AM Re: Troll Stoppers?

I agree with hard luck

In my opinion energy arts could be considered any type of energy art ie: black magic, vodoo,white magic,radki, chi gung. This is far to vague of a forum description.

Maybe the forums should be called the Traditional Chinese IMA forum. or maybe forums called tai chi, hsing-i baga, so on and so forth

Just a thought

A name change was proposed long ago. doesn't look like it will happen though.

#90422 - 04/06/05 05:39 AM Re: Troll Stoppers?

Energy arts only includes the Chinese ones? What about Japanese ones like Aikido? And korean ones like Hapkido?

A troll is a 12-16 year old kid that comes along and posts that he 'knows ki' and has knocked his buddy on his butt using it. However, it drained all the power I have built up.
Little kids living in fantasy land = trolls.

.... or a deliberately mischevious adult hiding his identity and stirring everyone up with deliberately provocative material. I have a deep mistrust of anyone who doesn't provide a proper bio.
