I don't want to speak for OR, but when I first took over another forum and brought similar ideas I was nearly crucified - no exaggeration. The mods wanted me run out of town, and were belligerent about it. They wanted me fired. Obviously I wasn't pushing bodyweight work, but I was pushing simplicity and foundation building.

This idea nearly cost me my job. People wanted my head, and I was called an idiot more times than I want to admit.

There are still many people in this niche who view a lot of this stuff as old fashioned, archaic, and infringing upon their split worldview.

Ask anyone from LTL to Babs. They know what hell I went through. I vented to them way too many times.
