I can understand why people do not want to use a title when describing others, or even themselves.
I have to say however that the belt system is linked with titles all the way to tenth degree. I know some will argue that this information was published after Mr. Parkers leaving us, but it is said to be directly from him.
So if the material from the founder of art has it linked to the title grandmaster, why do people always bitch and moan about it?
Personally the only thing that offends me is when someone takes the title Senior GrandMaster, which is supposed to be exclusive to Mr. Parker himself.
I can think of a few who grab that title now and then from things I have seen.
