Ninja, Ninjutsu, Shinobi, etc

The topic of ninja etc comes up from time to time, annoyingly mostly mentioned in relation to role playing games. I came across a blog: http://www.sonlightcamp.org/whats_new/blog/?p=11

Now the person gets the basic history wrong " A ninja was a warrior in 15th century feudal Japan. "
Wrong! For more than a thousand years countless ninja clans existed in the mountains.

I told this person that the history was wrong and I was simply ignored. And everything else stated was misleading.

Here's a brief History of Ninjutsu, complete with references: http://www.ebearweb.net/ninjutsuhist.htm

I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on.
