I wanted to stay as well Ben, but it came to the point where it was affecting me negatively mentally and I can't have that if I want to progress in any meaningful way on JB's program, which means everything to me.

I am referring mainly to a post where a member (not him) disrespected the sport of and all powerlifters. When I called him on it, he backtracked and said that is not what he meant. BS.

Again, I stayed as long as I could because I really liked helping out the young guys. However, even they were becoming mesmerized by him. Thus I felt even I was not helping much. When I feel I am not helping much it's time to go. Even tho there are many more knowledgeable lifter here than me, some with world records, I still feel I can help in other ways and I feel respected even tho I lift nowhere near what they do.

Thanks for allowing some discussion in your journal as well.
