The facts of the matter: Threats were issued, insults were hurled, lies were said, character was defamed, over a long stretch of time. Attempts to cool things failed, and drastic measures were taken. Additional threats and insults continue to come in from a section of the Pekiti crowd. Also, a great deal of 'thank yous' and understanding and support from all areas of the FMA. My understanding is that the intent is to return the section. I believe Tim stated that here and elsewhere. Insulting him isn't going to help your case. Shutting a section down when it gets too heated is something that is done, abet rarely, when it gets out of control. As to "fairness" and why the Dekiti people weren't "equally" dealt with, the Dekiti group for the most part took the barrage of insults, threats and defamation in silence. They were dealt with fairly, IMO as they did little to contribute to the problem on this site. It's also not "taking sides" to host someone at a camp. There have been a number of individuals in the FMA who have been invited in the last, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the door had also been open to Mr. Gaje as well. Tim likes to share the wealth of knowledge and skill in the FMA world with his organization, and help people out. For that, he's often crapped on in some cases by the very people he tried to help. That's the part that bugs me. The ingratitude. This is a free forum. None of the staff are Pekiti, yet a section was provided free of charge to allow all PT to discuss their art. The same consideration was offered to the art of Balintawak, Doce Pares, JKD-Kali, Kali Ilustrisimo, Kombatan, Lameco, Lightning Scientific Arnis, Modern Arnis, Pedoy's Derobio Escrima, Sikaran, Serrada, and both Dekiti and Pikiti. Many FMA styles outside what the staff here does. The only section that's been a problem has been the Pekiti one. All offered free of charge, though there is an optional supporting membership to help share the costs. The other thing is, a forum is what the members make of it. If you discuss the art and the history and the techniques in great depth, you build a great place. If you play politics and insult and toss around piles of crap, you build a great compost heap. That's great if you farm, but not if you study. Every member here, myself included, is a guest, and guests have responsibilities. One of those is simple "Don't insult your host". There is also "Don't piss in the pool/punchbowl". I personally, would like to see the Pekiti section back. But I don't get a vote, this isn't a democracy. In the end, it's Tims call, and people insulting him isn't going to do anything but keep it gone. Why would anyone create a home for vocal ingrates? They, who we know are the minority, only ruin it for the rest.So, be angry, but I'd suggest shutting up and not hurting your own cause. Friendly advice. I suggest it's taken. Then, the section and it's great information will probably be back.
