-He gets prank phone calls and even a person doing comments at him home
-He gets worried as the pranks get more serious and leaves
-/fit/ is so upset about it they are currently in disarray and many people left /fit/ altogether because of how disgusted about what /b/ has done to the man
-/fit/ is now looking for other role models as he's now in self-exile and Zyzz is dead

They loved the guy and generally did it because they could and some took it too seriously. That's how it usually works with 4chan."
Bloody pidgin english. Now my grammar circuits have melted.

Cool

You know, the quality and helpfulness of the advice Scooby gives is completely irrelevant.

How can any sane person get cranked up enough about stuff on the Internet to Threaten someone?

I don't care if someone what someone says on "U" Tube...

Well, I care to the degree that I agree, disagree or even unsubscribe...

But I sure wouldn't call someone's home, much less go there.

O, and if anyone is cranked up enough to want to come do me bodily harm...

If you get past my praetorian guard of dogs, you will be dealt with...

Sad...

Internet = Not Real Life

Scooby is a dork but doesn't deserve that. It's ridiculous how far people have taken social media these days. You have people turning their whole lives upside down because of Facebook and YouTube videos???? Seriously???

So, the thing is, how does setting up a private forum (which was up pretty quickly) with two varying membership fees, stop people from doing this again?

It doesn't, IMO, which leaves the question, why another forum at all?


In my search of "Scooby...threat" related stuff, I also came across a post (on another forum) which was in 2012, in which Scooby had been the one putting out threats...all, hearsay, obviously, but it makes you wonder whether the story is not the full story that we're getting.

I actually was one of the guys that liked Scooby.

He was the first guy I came across on the internet when I started searching for lifting advice.

Despite what people say, he did actually give out some decent advice, even if some of what he said was bioscience and ultimately wrong.


Regardless of what you think of him, he's giving up a ton of time and effort to help people, for free.

Perhaps allot of his lifting advice wouldn't applied after coming to MAB, and learning from you guys, which is what I did.
But I defiantly think his advice got the ball rolling for allot of people. He taught allot of the basics, and gave you some good advice for people just starting out, and browsing through the success story's on his site, allot of people had good transformations from listening to him.

The fact that he had death threats is ridiculous, and sad.
Like Nathan said the guy goes out of his way to help people and this is what he gets?

Also, seen as Scooby's channel gets allot of flack for supposedly giving bad advice, why don't people feel the same way about the Hodge Twins?

Two twins preaching 5x5 builds no muscle, and deadlifts shouldn't be done and should be referred to as "backsnapps" shouldn't be on the pedestal they're perched on if were speaking of bad advice.

I feel the comedy factor is the only thing keeping them going now....Preferred scooby's gnomes anyway
