I have some inside connections. I just have to find the right one that will allow me to find him.

Dave Maurice used to co-write the Hardgainer Q&A as well as moderate the Hardghainer Rountable Forum.

Funny off-topic story Faz,

On another forum, somebody posted something inaccurate about Stuart McRobert. The owner of the forum piped in and said he got a correction from a guy that goes by the forum name "Dave M". I always figured that was Dave Maurice. I think he's still floating around somewhere.

I was banned from the forum so that method of contact is out. (Silly reason actually)

Anyone on that forum that can tell me if he's still there? ..or by "used to" did you mean that he left?

That sounds like him, Offroad.

BtB he doesn't post on there anymore, I don't think he'll be contactable.

Bill Starr seems happy enough to talk, a friend of mine went to visit him a couple years ago.

Ivan Zwick, older gentlemen here in Southern Illinois, Was going for a 351 pound bench at 148 weight class in his late 60s. Really neat guy. Not one of the names you usually hear, but he's been in the game a long time. Newspaper article

Don't worry about it, some of the best people have been banned from there.

I asked them to remove my account years ago because I had to take a break from lifting. Now I cannot get back on there and they don't respond to emails. Instead of removing my account, they put me on the Ban List (dumb-dumbs) so I can't re-register. I have no idea if the forum is even still running, haven't heard it mentioned in some time.

I'm not sure either. I tried to re-register but never had my account confirmed.

I was banned for suggesting that members be allowed to exchange Blog/Facebook/Twitter links so we could better interact and build a deeper level of community. I also informed the mods that an open forum might encourage incoming links which would grow the forum.

Obviously they didn't like the idea.

It used to be a very active forum, and I was very active there. In fact I think I still have one of the higher post counts despite not posting in a while. Someone made the decision to be much more militant in policing the forum and a considerable number were banned leaving the place to pretty much be worthless for any real information.
