Default E-stat Supermen

How many times have you seen an e-stat Superman give training advice to no end, but be unwilling to post a picture, video or training log...

I don't know if this is a question or a vent, really. Just had to say it.

There are a couple of posters that I cross paths with on a daily basis (not here) that provide a lot of advice, but have no pictures. They have strong opinions which often contradict my own stubborn opinions. And I get the feeling that if they threw up a picture, the crowd of followers that listen to them would dwindle.

Anyway, please pull forward for your order.

I've come across a couple of these mainly over at bb dot com. Challenge to provide a pic or vid of them lifting said e-stat and they begin a flaming attack in an attempt to dis-credit you.

Since coming here I'm posting less and less at the above aforementioned site, due to trolls and e-stat supermen as you put it.

Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me 1500+! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Thanks for allowing me to vent. I am in no way saying that those without pictures shouldn't give advice. And I am surely not in the best condition of my life. I also don't believe you need to look perfect to know something.

I just find that 9 times out of 10, the guys that give you the greatest amount of grief seem hesitant to be forthcoming with their current state,

Look Dude,

If all you want to do is come here and complain about stuff such as I highlighted above, then maybe you should start your own weightlifting forum!

Oh SNAP!! You did just that.

I for one am glad you did. I think you'll find as has been mentioned already, that most people are tired of the Trolls, and the E-Stat Mightymouse's.

I, for one, like the fact that you do require members to post a picture to give training advice. By setting the bar higher than the other place, you draw the right kind of people. Get enough of the right kind of people together, and you have an Army.

Look at all the new people who are showing up, and saying what a great place this is, because of the standards that you require. People want a place like this, with the rules. It makes the content here, more valuable.

The Trolls will arrive, but they will see that there is no food for them here. They will leave the same way they came, and this place will continue to grow and get stronger, member by member.

The bar has been set. Require the members to meet the bar. Don't lower it to make it easier.

Thanks for the hard work.

The Irongarmers are the grand world champions of that sort of thing, which is especially awesome since they post their training logs on the site. Seeing **** like 3x10x135lbs on squats is particularly amusing after they toss around a litany of insults like "fag" and "meathead".

That is the largest repository of ill-informed fat ****s on the internet.

I did not know that. I've been there a couple of times and assumed that because you hung out there that it must be a bit more hardcore.

Look, I can curl 500 lbs 30 times, I don't need to post pics to prove anything to you!
Now hold on, I have to yell at my mom b/c she forgot to cut the crust of my PB&J.
MAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!


But, seriously, great job here, Steve.
The tone on training is adult and serious while still allowing fun, manly things. Many sites are too PC or too bloated to enforce any culture or community.
I'm almost forgetting the other site where I used to post daily...
