I’m probably opening a huge can of worms here, but I regularly see rude/immature answers on this section. While rudeness and obnoxiousness is endemic to Y!A, I find it rather ironic that this is in the marital arts section, and that it’s a bit more extreme here than most other sections (R&S and politics being notable exceptions), given that MA is supposed to be about respect, self-control, discipline, honor, etc.
I often see personal attacks, a lot of arguments, and a lot of badmouthing. I’m also frustrated with the approach that many regulars take to martial arts; they seem to think that the sole purpose of martial arts is fighting, and that their training automatically serves as a replacement for self-defense and street fighting. (BTW, it doesn’t.)
More or less, I also see this attitude: “I own the TRUTH™ about martial arts, and everyone else is full of $#&%! (Unless they agree with me.)”
Do any of you see this too?
(Thanks in advance for answering.)
