Its a problem across mma. Too bad the fucked up scoring system doesn't allow refs to penalize fighters for sticking their fingers out.

That's not how people view an eye poke, if you do a scratching motion or push fingers on the eyelid, those count as pokes. What's the line of thought here? Erase Jones' faults or to be argumentative. Both are tedious approaches that don't really say anything.
It's not nitpicking, it's a statement of definition, one the people are not using correctly.

A "scratching motion" is vague and also by definition not a poke. Im not "ignoring" fingers touching the eye, I'm saying that is explicitly what is required to justify a poke. Or even the eyelid assuming the ye is closed.

The only reason it's continuing for so long is because people can't accept an elementary concept and that they somehow see it as a defense for Jones as opposed to just being right instead of being wrong.

Jon Jones is just using his kung fu - a lot of kung fu is based on attacking weak points like the eyes

Gus had better watch out - Jon might whip out the 5-step exploding heart technique next

Well effective meaning - Jones won the fight while employing this technique while Machida did not.

Yes they can. Just warn the fighter in the locker room prefight or warn him the second he tries it during the fight. If the fighter still does it, he is disobeying ref instructions which he can be penalized for.
