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

Hello,

Thank you for visiting KarateForums.com.

The internet has made it easy for people to have a voice and to receive instant gratification. This is both good and bad. It's good because we can connect to people quicker and share our thoughts without delay. We can buy a song and download it less than a minute after we decided we wanted it.

On the other hand, it can lead to a shallower appreciation of what we have. And without a delay in sharing our thoughts, we sometimes share thoughts that aren't fully formed or considered. Because of this, there is a movement back to mediums of the past.

My friend Chrispian loves to write in paper notebooks like Field Notes (I myself use a paper planner). Vinyl record sales have increased steadily over the last several years. Discerning consumers are looking offline to cultivate their passions and engage in deeper thinking.

Similarly, we have always encouraged high quality contributions here at KarateForums.com. In line with this, for the discerning KarateForums.com members, we will now be accepting handwritten submissions to KarateForums.com via postal mail. We have created a form that you can print and fill in, while taking your time. Once you are done, mail it to us and we'll publish it online.

Download the form here: http://www.karateforums.com/documents/kfsubmissionform.pdf

You can still submit posts online, but I look forward to receiving some excellent, well thought out posts via postal mail.

Thank you for reading.

Sincerely,

Patrick

Hopefully, it'll work out. Seems a slow way to submit, but I'm willing!!
