New York Times on longsword fencing

I don't think this has been mentioned on this forum, even though Axel Petersson and Jake Norwood appear in a movie and an article in the old Gray Lady, the newspaper of record (only a few paragraphs, though)

Yes, some very good exposure. Of course, as a community, we screwed it all up immediately when Ken Mondschein posted a trolling answer to Matt's video. The thread went up to over 1,000 posts when Ken Dietiker drowned the post in the bathtub. On one level a pity, but no more than a mercy killing.

Out of sheer rubbernecking curiosity-- where did this take place ?

Longpoint took place in Maryland. The discussion of Ken's stupid video took place on Facebook (to be fair, it only hit a thousand posts because Matt Galas was artificially inflating the post count).

To be fair, Matt was not the only one. By deleting, Ken Dietiker saved many of us a great deal of embarrassment.
