Agreed. The easiest possible research that could have been done on this subject would be a simple jaunt to wikipedia or an entry into google.ca and this guy failed to do even that. The resulting 'article' pretty much portrayed our sport in precisely the fashion that we have been trying to avoid.
I mean, if he had talked to some ACTUAL AIRSOFTERS in the ACTUAL AIRSOFTING COMMUNITY who have experience in participating in ACTUAL AIRSOFT GAMES and organizers who put on ACTUAL AIRSOFT EVENTS, he might have drawn a different conclusion.
You know, a factual, accurate one.
