As long as we remain a merchant economy, you are never going to stop people from selling promotions or outright claiming master-hood, to make a buck. I talked to a Gal the other day that told me she was a black belt, but could not for the life of her remember the name of the style. She then admitted only training a few months before she was promoted. She was hot; so, I can only imagine how that black belt test ended. This does give me some new dating angles to consider.
