I think you owe him an apology. The text with your post lead us to believe you were admiring the woman.

In addition, posting a video without any questions or comments that hint as it's point leaves your reason a mystery.

Furthermore, this is an open forum and people can post whatever they'd like as long as it's not inappropriate. If they misinterpreted your point, clarify your point. Don't attack them.

We do in the Shout Box each day.

People merely were trying to have fun because they had no idea what your post was about.

You should have shared that in your initial post. You didn't, and that's why people freely commented. You can't get mad at people for responding randomly when the initial post was just a video with no questions or comments about why you posted it.

They were making an assessment because you still were extremely unclear as to why you posted the video. Saying it was for "knowledge purposes" is still open-ended, and people responded as intelligently as they could.

The weight is light, and I had no idea why this woman would lift as such. Was this the knowledge you were trying to pass along? I don't know. I just posted about what I saw.

People have a right to comment freely. The weight was non-taxing. I commented with the same response. We were trying to make an intelligent analysis of the video. I assumed you were interested in doing the same with multiple dumbbells.

I also owe lurkers to this forum an intelligent response. If I see an unproductive exercise/approach, I am going to mention it.
