Default Community Article - Rep Range, Strength and Hypertrophy

I am starting a series of "community articles" where I will ask your opinions on various topics, and I want your blunt, unadulterated answer.

I will take the very best from this conversation and place it in an article on the topic. There is no "maximum" word limit, so this article can be as long as a book if the topic is hot enough.

Don't hold back your opinion, even if you disagree with another lifter...and as always, keep the conversation respectful.

How much does rep range impact strength and hypertrophy gains?

It is commonly said that lower rep ranges build strength and restrict muscle growth, and that higher rep ranges are good for hypertrophy but not for strength. Is this an oversimplification of the issue of rep ranges, or does the rep range used have a big impact on strength versus hypertrophy gains?
