comment Can you be immune to chokeholds?
While I don't believe nigel meant to suggest it the way it came across, I would agree with John that the suggestion in general would be a very bad idea and can lead to unforeseen and foreseen tragic ends.

comment Can you be immune to chokeholds?
+1 Agreed, the choke has to be done correctly or it is ineffective. A person is not immune to a choke if its a bad technique and not really a choke. If its properly done choke AND they don't choke, then yeah they are immune but even then I would argue it has to do with some unique physical circumstance and not so much immunity per se. If a choke is a done right, the person will choke. At least anecdotal evidence has so far supported it.

@slugster thank you, I appreciate this but I just wish people didn't bring their personal baggage into community interactions. We can chat, get some coffee when I am in God land, whatever you want buddy.

I agree edits are a bad place but as I said, I didn't go down that route.

comment Self-defense against a bigger charging opponent
I resist the change because its unnecessary, petty and clearly personal, not content based since it doesn't detract from the message, harm anyone and is being removed due to a personal bias of the person. So yeah its not about letting me have my way, its about the person overstepping and using this system to passive aggressively behave badly and get away with it.

@JonEricson, first off "Please use comments or go to meta to resolve this dispute." I have no dispute, the frivolous, petty and unnecessarily personal edits waged by Mr. Liepmann is the issue. Apparently he has no life and I pestering me is his hobby. Second, I don't appreciate your suggestion that somehow he is the injured party that needs to be the bigger man, given his petty and cowardly edits are the reason this matter has escalated. If you are taking sides, then you are not qualified to participate in this matter given your bias.
