Edit: This was part of an April Fools' Day joke.

Hello,

Thank you for visiting KarateForums.com.

Unfortunately, over the last 3 to 6 months, I have noticed a trend within our community. This trend is a lack of discipline. In how members post and, especially, in how members treat more senior members within our community. This is not consistent with basic principles of respect or the way of the martial arts.

As such, I am happy to announce that we will be instituting an etiquette policy, effective May 1. This etiquette policy gets to the heart of the problem by outlining how more senior members within our community, as well as Sempais, Senseis and myself, your Grandmaster, should be addressed.

Please take the time to read it in full so that you are able to comply with this policy beginning on May 1.

Etiquette policy: http://www.karateforums.com/karateforums-com-etiquette-policy-vt44833.html

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Patrick

Thank you, Grandmaster O'Keefe. It's about time these jabronis start treating me with the proper respect and deferment.
