    I never understand why you (mass personal insult deleted) glorifiy Bruce Lee. You guys often worship Bruce Lee as some heroic underdog against evil.

    Well here's the reality. The real Bruce Lee was the complete opposite of a heroic underdog fighting for good and justice. Bruce Lee in his youth was a street gangster. No clue! I am not kidding! He is! Research him. He was a real criminal back then. He was the type of guy back then who will brutally stab a College student to death for no reason and then mock, swear at, laugh at, and threaten his victim's grieving family in court while he'll jokingly ask the judge if his victim's life even mattered.

    In China, he lead his own street gang named Junction Street Eight Tigers and they fought against other street punks. One real testament to his criminality was when he and his gang robbed a store. One member of his gang even commited shoplifting. What's worse is that Bruce Lee was not born into an impoverished ghetto family. He's the son of rich parents so I really don't understand why he had to resort to criminality as a way to get money. Most of the time, he was the instigator of fights. He's probably some sort of serial bully.

    Bruce Lee was a gangster punk in his youth. Basically, the type of guy who picks on (more insults deleted). Really, he was worse than a school bully. He was a violent thug.

    Also, Bruce Lee was popular with girls in his school when he was young. For his whole life, he was never shy, socially awkward, or a loner. He was popular in his young days. He had amazing social skills, charisma, and he was charming to many people. Again, he's basically the opposite of you shy cowardly loners. He was never an underdog. He was the king of high school.

    It's really sad for many Bruce Lee fans out there to hear the bitter truth.

    In conclusion, Bruce Lee has more in common with the person in high school (Yet more insults deleted) . Sorry.

    So stop hero worshipping the guy.

    @Casual_Dude, watch the language, ease up on the assumptions and wind your neck in.

    As for the mass personal attack, well consider this a last and only warning.

    Bruce Lee was indeed a gangster in his youth. Research it up.

    You accused everybody here of worshiping Bruce Lee and inferred we’re all “losers”.
    Your “revalation” that he got himself into trouble as a youth isn’t exactly news , every single book and film about the man talk about it.

    WHOA!!! NO!!! SHOPLIFTING???? And I thought killing college kids was bad!
    There's a new and laughable term.
    Don't you understand? That's why we all wannabe him.

    Too bad for you that Bruce's street gang past was a fiction on his part to look "tough" and any similarity to any person or persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

    I'm sure it's merely supposed to be an insult but I for one don't care to be exposed for the shy,cowardly Bruce Lee worshipper that I am. So here ya go-

    You don't get enough flame form these days. It seems to be a dying breed. Maybe we should put this one in a cage to be observed by passers by with an information board on their endangered levels.

    Mod Note: Hey, I get the flame form was in jest. But it still had personal insults. So it was edited. Personal insults are not allowed on MAP. The TOS HAS to be applied consistently to everyone or it means nothing. Especially when the OP was warned first by admin, and then reiterated by other mods for the same insults in that form.

    Carry on!

    Regarding usage of the Flame Form.

    I just saw this today-haven't been around much due to health problems in family- so I'd like to apologize for using something formerly in common use here for years. I can only plead ignorance of the change of outlook on particular parts of aforesaid document due to my absences during the years of bad internet access.

    Won't happen again.

    Hey El,
    Hope all is well with the family, sending healing vibes my man.

    Hope the family are OK.

    I think an update of the flame form is definitely in order! Not sure anyone understands "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US" anymore :D

    Hey! I hope your family is recovering and things are getting better!

    Mod note: I had hoped my message conveyed that I understood just what you wrote above. I was attempting to just let people know that we had shifted from this and how things were being moderated now and why. But that the mod team understood that this was something that was ok a long time ago. And that the edit might be confusing to old time long standing members.

    If I failed to convey this and it sounded like I was coming down on you, then I absolutely failed to convey my message properly and I apologize!

    On a personal note again, I look forward to reading every post you make here.

    Just an anecdote from my instructor.

    He sat down for lunch with his assistant and Bruce Lee's sister, Phoebe and everyone was on their best behaviour, only to find out rather quickly that she swears like an old docker.
