Nice short article, I am sure that Sensei8 and Mr A would likely agree.
Posted link here as I am sure that they would enjoy the shared opinion,

Nice, short, and to the point article by Andre Bertel; most assuredly so, I liked it. Thank you for the article, Bulltahr!!

Blind faith; I don't subscribe to that believe because there's so valid substance to it. The floor is unforgiving in its silent witnessing, and holds no compassion of what it's a witness of.

Taste and see that it is good, and the only way to know if its good or not is to taste it. Not once, not twice, but as much as it might be necessary to satisfy YOUR expectations of 'IT'!! Not mine, not your Sensei's, not any governing body, and/or not your fellow MAist...but YOURS. If I don't taste [test] it, then I've no one else to blame, but me alone. That's a dangerous way to meander through the MA.

Why??

It's YOUR MA betterment, and your MA betterment demands that proof is on the floor!!
