 Why people bash Ashida-san... - www.ezboard.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
By attacking Master Kim they are trying to enforce their paradigm, however it seems that the paradigm must be very weak because of the constant need to lash out at Master Kim who has clearly become an important archtype in the minds of those who attack him.
So it is with Master Kim, if these kids are able to prove master Kim a fake then they themselves must be real but the constant attacks show that they do not believe he is a fake.
These trolls much like the modern turks we are at war with are being put in danger and due to their lack of sense of self seem to embrace the dangerous because if they are attacked due to their actions they can point to this as their cause being validated.

Then I start to use other name (NOT telling which one) to pretend to be interest in his teaching and try ask questions to make him look like a idiot and make him give stupid answering out and frustate him so in future I can ruin his forum and make him a laughing stock.
Method 3: Go in and pretend to want to be part of them and secretly make Ashida look stupid until few weeks or months later suddenly break out and point out how stupid he is. That will REALLY discourage him and he will end up not knowing who is his real driend or not.
