Default Vince Del Monte Rips MAB

Vince Del Monte, the e-book king ripped Muscle and Brawn via email.

He thinks I should turn every page into something that's purely profit driven, with links to reviews of products like his e-book. He believes that this is the holy grail of bodybuilding sites.

Vince Del Monte states:

Quote:
Get some reviews up and focus on quality bodybuilding content and have links to affiliate programs... my stuff is a good start.
Vince also stated that the site gave him no reason to stay. He clicked a couple times, and could see why the site gets no traffic. He also made fun of the forum.

BTW, MAB has been up under a year and receives over 500,000 page views a month and growing.

Vince also had other things to say, ripping MAB. But I don't want to waste my time. He did seem to dislike hot women.

Thanks, Del Monte, for calling the 500 articles, etc., I've put up the last year basically shit content.

--My interviews with prominent lifters and bodybuilders? Shit content compared to Del Monte's articles

--My library of training routines for powerlifting and bodybuilding? Shit content

Note to readers...the last thing I want to do is turn MAB into an e-book pimp site, or a supplement whore like T-Nation.

But I give Vince Del Monte credit. He is slick. He wants me to re-structure my entire site around his crap e-book. Yes, If I align myself under his MLM pyramid, all my dreams will come true!

We all know how that ends.

I am busting my ass to give MAB quality content. I've recently added articles from big name lifters such as Mike Mahler and Eric Talmant.

I had to rant a bit because there are far too many idiots in the bodybuilding realm. Vince Del Monte has a right to pursue his profits. But to insult Muscle and Brawn in the process is extremely short-sighted.

BTW, did I mention that Del Monte committed to an interview very early in 2009 and never followed through?

I'll continue to be a man of my word, and not a MLM whore.
