    hello,

    bevois, agreed on all counts. have always been fascinated with why and how as much as the what.

    love hearing predictions and speculations as it gives insight into the minds at work on this forum. also, a tremendous amount of what happens in the sports is a mystery. why is business conducted as it is? why do fighters/players make the deals and decisions they do? why certain techniques get used more often than others? why do the sports develop differently in different places?

    what does the crowd have to say about "xyz" situation? what fighters/players does the crowd like?

    yes, this often leads to frequent posting, but the answers, jokes and tidbits are worth the effort.

    thanks

    uhh... that was a bit too much to read. I'll take Gazzy's side cause she posted pix of her booty. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I'd rather just look at that than read for half an hour.

    Lorenzo, you have my support. Post away!

    Gazzy, so do you! You are one of the best “upgrades” to this forum I can think of.

    Bevois, you should be an ambassador. Use your powers to seek world peace or something.

    Well I could play cop and say everyone has the right to freedom of post. I do like the thought of a negoation betwen Gazzy and LSD for some photos. :) On the other side I look forward to new post eveyday. Wen I log into the forum I look to see how many threads have new post. I do not look to see who has the last post as there could be many good post prior to that one.

    If I do not like what someone says then I just ignore it or I respond to them. Maybe becase of my job I have learned to ignore half of the statements made to me. So go ahead and post away LSD.

    Gazzy if you come here to talk about techniques then lets start some threads on various holds or escapes. I think it would be a great addition to the forum.

    you are adamant about making your point that lsd should continue posting freely. i get the point, and if i do, i'm sure lsd does too. so, there u have it.

    and who ever said i come here to talk about techniques? that was the only thing i didn't mention i think..lol. either way tho, i'm down for the idea and i'd love to participate! please feel free to create a thread and i'll happily partake.

    Hey I only said it 2 times, I am sorry about being redundant. No flying armbars on Kibninc. I thought you had said something about covering techniques on the forum but upon review I was wrong and I am sorry. I am going to try a thread on some questions I only hope it does not come out wrong.

    By the way did I say that LSD should be able to post JK :D

    Sorry in my own warped sense of humor I could not pass on that last comment. All kidding aside I hope that everyone here gets along and this forum continues to grow.

    hello,

    kibuninc. interesting point. gazzy being here to talk about techniques.....

    kinda thought that too. realized something about this forum. perhaps we take those we know to be black belts a bit for granted (in the same way we take bevois' knowledge for granted).

    a black belt shows up... BAM!!! we just sort of expect them to start talking technique. maybe we do that. maybe some of us should think again.

    GAZZY, BEVOIS, GUMBY, SCOTTY, LOVATOJR, G.LOVER, DELICIOUSBASS and any others...

    apologies for that. making the assumption that "the black belt will teach us" seems to be an easy one to make.

    the insights you give are HUGELY APPRECIATED, even if sometimes that appreciation isn't shown. considering the demands on your collective time, we are very lucky you make any posts at all.

    never thought about it like that.

    thanks

    you are a great man lsd. you definitely know how to appreciate.

    its' funny because I do get that a lot. the first thing people talk about with me is how they've done in their jiu jitsu class, how many people or whom they've tapped (lol), techniques they need help with, or new techniques they've heard of. it's hard to have a conversation that doesn't involve bjj. but it's cool, i don't mind. :)

    im sure lovato, glove, and other's get the same thing.

    well, sometimes a little slow on the draw, but this skull sometimes notices things..... it pays to try to see the world as others do sometimes (walk a mile in the chaps of another....)

    after all, even though you are a black belt, you are entitled to be able to start as many ass threads as you please! who are we to interrupt?

    and if lovatojr or deliciousbass want to start an ass threads, well, we will support them there too. guess noone wants to "talk shop" when showing off the "naughty bits".

    3 questions for lorenzodamarith

    1) why do you write "hello" before all your posts and "thanks" after all your posts? that comes off as a bit weird and insincere.

    2) why do you never use the "space bar" to separate people's first and last names? that makes your posts harder to read, which takes away from the point of what you're trying to say, since people don't know what "takanorigomi" or "georgessaintpierre" means at first glance.

    3) why do you feel the need to comment after every post on every thread. like Gazzy said, doing that prevents people from seeing when other forum members post. one of the reasons why this forum probably has so many visitors and not as many active members is that no one sees when Scotty or Lovato's new posts are made in the "last post" link outside each thread, because you immediately post right after them. sometimes its nothing more than a question to a question or a joke that has no relevance to the thread. you aren't exactly trolling, but in a sense you are spamming. one would think that if lurkers saw that Scotty, Lovato, or other forums members posted on a thread, they would be more apt to open the thread and join the forum.

    there is no reason to try and blow this off like some kinda jerk. obviously my questions are of concern, since you don't seem to care that you are annoying other forum members like Gazzy. for someone that spends the majority of his day asking questions, i think you should take some time to answer my 3 very legitimate questions above.

    hello,

    you know what overcat? every once in a while, you make a good point.

    alrighty then.

    1)hello is a simple greeting. thanks is not for you or the posters. thanks is for the owners of the forum. and yes, it is sincere.

    2)names. did technical report writing for many years. also communicated on a system in which we typed names in the manner you see here. 18 years of habit.

    3)just enthusiastic. now listen hard. listening? good. the number of posts has nothing to do with whether anyone likes it or not. just like posting. just as several here seem not to care about offending this skull, there seems to be no need to worry about offending you.

    that is the short version.

    now, as far as scotty, lovatojr and others.... let them be responsible for themselves. if they do not post often, that is thier choice. that is anyones choice. they have never posted often. that is not something you should be laying on anyones shoulders but them.

    if you think for an instant that scotty would hold back if offended, think again. if you feel attacked by the number of posts, then you are reading way too much into it.

    you ACTUALLY think members will join a forum with fewer posts? by anyone? you are free to think that, but, well, there are others who see it a little differently.

    now, unlike some others here, this skull doesn't demand explainations of others for it's own sake. this skull doesn't feel free to just offend at will. honestly, if the number of posts, or a greeting and thanks is the worst that happens, are you really having that bad of a time?

    now just so you know overcat. spent about 6 months away from the forum and guess what. scotty, lovatojr and other, more important, more relevant people, the ones that matter, didn't post ANY more often.

    nutshell version:

    hello is hello. nothing nefarious.
    thanks is to otm itself. it is for them.
    names, that is just a spelling habit. nothing nefarious.
    posting is just that. posting.

    we are done now, overcat.

    thanks

    What overcat is trying to say in #3 has no relevance to the AMOUNT of posts Scotty or Lovato or Glover make, it has to do with OTHER PEOPLE GETTING A CHANCE TO SEE WHEN THEY POST. which is the point that i also was trying to make.

    people don't get a chance to see who posted last.. cuz it's always you. that doesn't make it fun.. not to me.. and i'm sure there are other's (that haven't already posted in accord) that feel the same. If there are members here that don't mind, great! but there are plenty that either get sick of it, or are extremely unamused/bored by it, like me. It's makes coming here not as fun. More of a task. Now I have to look through and see where Lovato has posted. Give it at least a day, let other's see, give them the chance to see, when someone with valuable knowledge has posted!

    I have made my request. you have refused to respect the feelings of other's about the amount that you are posting. nothing personal but,

    gazzy has left the building.

    bye guys.

    are you foreign or something? if not, why do you keep misunderstanding the very simple point that Gazzy and I are making here? when someone posts, there name appears on the main forum under the "last post" section next to each thread. people (such as visitors/potential new forum members) can then see who is posting, which will encourage them to open threads and join the forum. if you take a look right now, your name is after every stinking thread as "last post". no one said anything about other forum members posting more. we said that when other forum members do post, there names never appear on the front of the forum under "last post" because you immediately feel the need to comment about every comment.

    hello,

    foreign? at one time, yes. but that doesn't really matter overcat. the point overcat and gazzy are attempting to make relies on the assumption that the individual you are trying to reach understands the technology the same way you both do. however it never even occured to either of you to find out if that understanding exists.

    oh yeah.... overcat is smart.... almost forgot that.....

    so what the real issue comes down to is the names being displayed. in order to reply, there must be something to reply to. perforce, a name is therefore displayed. this is what you said, neh?

    it follows then, overcat, that you would feel this same rightous indignation toward bevois if each time you logged on and saw his name. is this correct overcat?

    the essential difference here overcat is one of interpretation. you see a particular name and decide to be offended. this skull sees a name and is happy to have something to read.

    so what next overcat? in what way will we attempt to demonstrate your superior outlook?

    you do realize of course that in leiu of arguing about this type of thing, you could just post some things yourself. if you have any original topics you would care to discuss, we have readers who will take a look. if you have any jokes, they will get a laugh. if you have any real questions, there are of course black belts here who would gladly answer.

    of course, you are smart enough to know this overcat.

    are we done overcat? you've got the ball. we know from experience that you will continue this, as is your right. it is a forum, after all.

    by the way, since you find solidarity with gazzy, you might even ask her a question once in a while. who knows, you might even tell her a joke. she is a lot more interesting than just a name to drop.

    this is fun overcat. you are an interesting subject.

    you still don't get it...

    we never said or implied anyone here was better than you. that is just an assumption you came up with on your own. we said people want to see that there is more than just ONE person posting on these threads. if any ONE name was attached as the "last post" to every thread, the same issue would be brought up regardless of who it was. it has nothing to do with position or standing. it has to do with the fact that it looks like you are the only person responding to every thread. modesty is a virtue. your posts are good and you usually carry a fun tone (minus the recent sarcasm and insults), but like Gazzy mentioned earlier, even the best cologne in the world will stink if you constantly spray it everywhere. quit being so defensive and consider that you are potentially pushing away a very respected forum member with your refusal to compromise with her.

    by the way, why are you still avoiding the simple question that was already asked twice...

    to be blunt, thought about what she said, but decided not to comply. in truth, network was down for about a week. tried to explain privately, but no answer. not matter. again, that is HER preferrence. SHE decides. so don't begrudge her that.

    if your network was down for about a week, then why isn't there a week missing in your recent post history and how were you able to explain it to her in private? :confused:

    KibunInc wades into the debate because I have this problem of wanting confrontation sometimes. :(

    I understand what is said when Overcat and Gazzy say that each post has LSD's name on it when you go to the forum. But each of the threads that have a new post also (On my computer) shows up dark blue. I then look at the post and there are usually several new post by people.

    Now I would like to cover a couple of facts. Gazzy did bring in more people to the forum and I thank her for that. I can tell a rise in post as a direct result of her being here. I would like to thank her for giving me input on my upcomming fight and I wish more people would post there as LSD has not post there at all.

    LSD did leave this forum for about 6 months (Not 100 % sure of the exact amount of time but I am close). The forum dropped off drastically in the number of post. I would log on and there was no new post to read. BORING!

    This brings us to a problem. If LSD stops posting this forum does slow down drastically. If Gazzy goes away so does the upswing she brought to the forum. So lets have an experiment.

    LSD do not respond to my questions on my fight or a couple of threads I am going to start on techniques and lets see how many people join and start responding. LSD I do value your input so please PM me with any info.

    If it is true that people do not psot as a result of LSD always posting then we should see an upswing in new people posting. If not then it is a mute point. Damn cops are good at working out solutions.

    Mcgruff did not solve anything but he did take a bite out of crime.

    Cagney and Lacey were just bad cops. there are always a few.

    TJ Hooker was good for two reasons. One he was a starship commander in a former life and two he was always trying to impress Heather Locklear. I would be a great cop if I was trying to impress her all of the time.

    Those NY coppers are a hardcore group by the guys and girls from Reno 911 are amongst the best to hit the streets in a while.

    TJ Hooker was good for two reasons. One he was a starship commander in a former life and two he was always trying to impress Heather Locklear. I would be a great cop if I was trying to impress her all of the time.

    Those NY coppers are a hardcore group by the guys and girls from Reno 911 are amongst the best to hit the streets in a while.

    hello,

    agreed. mcgruff DID take a bite out of crime. RENO 911 ROCKS!!!!! the episode with the "lady vests" was fuuuuuuuuunny!!! hahahahaha!!!

    thanks

    the point is, LSD you are a good guy so post whenever you feel like it. We gotta enjoy ourselves and you do nothing to try to defame or harm people. Everyone, just lighten up and have fun and use the forum for technique sharing and good old fashion light humor!

    As much as I think this has gotten out of hand, I feel the need to post my two cents (for whatever that's worth). I can say that it is annoying to me for every post LSD has on this forum to start with "Hello" and end with "Thanks." Quite simply, I just don't see a point for it. I also find it annoying that LSD posts on every single thread as soon as someone else posts on that thread. With all of that being said, it is simply my opinion and just like I'm entitled to make my opinion known, he's entitled to post in any manner he sees fit and as often as he so chooses. I can also see how the forum would seem to be "less crowded" if LSD were to stop posting. There are many times that he has very interesting and intelligent things to say. There are also many times that LSD offers absolutely nothing to the post whatsoever and still comments. With all of the aforementioned, I think it would be ashame if LSD quit posting on this forum, however, I think it would be wise to possibly take the advice of some of the "critics" out there. I don't think anyone has tried to be malicious or project hate, but I believe that people could make some changes to the way they post around here and benefit this forum as a whole. Once again, these are just my own thoughts on the situation. Everyone is more than welcome to ignore everything I've said and my feelings will not be hurt. It would be upsetting to see some individuals leave this forum because they feel like they have been run off by other forum members. Just some food for thought.

    Lol ... I thought Lorenzo had retired from posting or at least, semi-retired. I remember when he was just a white belt, haha.

    Harmless though.

    Well LSD you know I support you posting here but the idea of the techniques thread was for you not to post to see if new people would post. You posted on the threads which kinda messed up the experiment. :confused:

    OK I had left for a week and went down south. I came back over the weekend and noticed that LSD has left. So now I am looking for the influx of people posting that would not post becase LSD was always posting. I am seeing only about 1 to 3 new post a day. It takes me about 2 minutes to look at the forums, grow bored, and move one.

    So come on. Lets see all of the new post that eveyone was talking about would happen. :confused:

    perhaps we can change the route of egging the situation on. lets just let it flow. i would like to stay, but in all honesty if he had continued binge posting, i myself wouldn't have come back. i don't see why there can't be a happy medium and it has to be ALL or NOTHING at all....

    I agree 100% with what you said. A happy medium would be great. I personally do not post unless I feel I have something to say. maybe we can have him eliminate the minor posting like for example when people post things like:

    Viva, or Yes, or other one word post that do not add to the discussion. Instead try to post ideas for example like you and I are doing right now.

    It is just a suggestion. I am not saying that this is the only way but maybe it is a happy medium. I enjoy talking with everyone here.

    Unfortunately, LSD has had this issue on other forums as well. He left our forum after similar issues. He tried posting on sherdog a few times (which is much more merciless form than WWG or here) and was quickly dispatched.

    I have had lots of PM's with LSD and I think he is a nice guy, genuinely interested in learning, and oftentimes has good questions. However, he does get manic with his "binge posting"...to the point where it distracts from the purpose of a forum. He is very bi-polar in his internet ways: you don't hear from him for months and then you can't seem to get rid of him. I agree that there should be a happy medium.

    If LSD is reading this, I would suggest simply posting your most "pressing questions or comments" and not flooding forums with posts. Install a filter for yourself. You have a lot to learn and gain from folks on the many forums you have visited...if you do not alienate yourself. You don't want to burn every bridge on the net buddy.

    uhh... that was a bit too much to read. I'll take Gazzy's side cause she posted pix of her booty. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I'd rather just look at that than read for half an hour.

    hello,

    well, there you have it folks..... ASS!!

    ass vs lsd ass via tko (hotness)

    actually thecomish is just a little bit off. a picture is worth a thousand words. however, a picture of ass is worth 1516 words. so in terms of economy of action, gazzy's ass photos are a much better way to spend ones time!

    feel the power!!!

    Gazzy and LSD are both appreciated and wanted here. LSD does ask a lot of questions, but that is a lot better than someone who assumes they know the answer to everything and goes on living a life of ignorance. I will also say that Gazzy speaks her mind as bluntly as possible. That is part of her charm and mystique, so please don't mistake what she is saying here as an attack on LSD. She likes LSD and pretty much everyone here, which is why she posts here. I think what Gazzy is trying to say is that sometimes comments don't need to be commented on and sometimes there isn't really a need to speculate on something not worth speculating about. In other words, some things should go without saying.

    LSD is a philosophical type that cares more about the way a flower "might" grow, instead of letting nature just take its course. You might say, he's more of a philosopher than an engineer. An example of this might be when he speculated that the premature Drysdale announcement could have been made due to a "limited time engagement". If that were the case, they would have stated it was for a limited time and wouldn't have said he moved to Vegas full time (he hasn't yet). An engineer likes to call a spade a spade. A philosopher likes to wonder why a spade is called a spade. That is where the contrasting viewpoints might clash. When I stated that the Couture v. Zuffa lawsuit and subsequent HDNet filing will be heard in court in March, LSD wanted to speculate on the outcome. To an engineer, this is really impossible due to the two completely contradicting interpretations that Couture and Zuffa have offered us in the media. I don't fault LSD for his curiosity, but I can see how it might make an engineer like Gazzy raise an eyebrow or two. I think the most important thing here is that Gazzy and LSD are nice people and are respectful of each other and everyone else on the forum. This forum is a great way to learn new things, while reconsidering the way you think about old things. This thread alone shows how two separate minds have the ability to find a happy medium, which is really the thing in life we look to accomplish with everyone we meet.

    now i know why you're the "awesomer"

    Hello,

    Get the f*** out of here. Hijacking a thread is changing the subject or commanding the thread towards that persons posts. lorenzodamarith stays on point and has typically thoughtful posts. If this were the "ask Gazzy" forum then I think you would have the right to suggest he stop posting so much. Where is the "ask Gazzy" forum these days anyway?

    I support lorenzodamarith 100%.

    "FORUM" not thread genius! I have a right to post and say what i feel here just as much as i would on the "ask gazzy". any forum is public and everyone has the RIGHT to post as much or whatever they want. I am and have askied him to relax on the posting bit.. It's plastered.. like everyday!

    It is not one person's opinion that should be spat in everyone's face all the time.

    Kibun, no one is asking him to stop posting, or be gone. I told him in private what a talent I thought he has. Truly. But that it was a bit much.. come one guys.. just take a look.. haven't u gotten onto the page.. few days in a row, and everysingle time its lorenzodamarith!

    Like I said, he has saved many a thread, and is very witty. It's just a bit much and becomes undesireable when its constant.. always there. It becomes dull to the eyes... like a white noise...
