When I called him on it, he denied it. So, I quoted his post and then he tried to change his story. They all even chased Big j away and Spart, as far as I know. I just couldn't take it anymore mentally. Another issue that was totally non sense was the locking out vs not locking out bench press. The list goes on and on.
I now understand why you left. I dont blame you at all. I have noticed a change on the site. It does seem like bb v. pl which is unfortunate. We all are suppose to help/support/encourage everyone involved. I think sometimes ppl forget that. The lock out vs not locking out argument was also getting real old. I have just tried to look past that. Unfortunately those issues are going to always exist. Filter out the BS and move on.
