That sounds awesome and I know no matter how big this website gets there will still be a tight knit group of guys here that will be willing to help anyone that is dedicated to the iron!

Hit it hard guys, best of luck to everyone with their new years goals.

This is true, but still, im afraid to see this become like bb.com where outside of the small bodygroups there isn't much camaraderie, and there is little rule enforcement, like i remember back when i first went on their i was getting harassed by an older member, reported it and nothing happened. But thats why i like it so much here, age and ideas dont matter, everyone gets some respect

i agree, but just to put things in perspective:

mab has 250 members

bb.com has nearly 2,000,000 million (1,990,991 to be exact)

I don't think you should worry about it too much, steve runs a very tight ship here, at the first sign of any problem he addresses and he is a great guy. I do not think he will let this site get out of hand. I know he will do everything in his power to keep it like it is now.

This is true, and i do not doubt BTB's sincerity, all im saying is that as this site grows i doubt it will be able to stay so warm. I mean obviously if we get up to a size anywhere near bb.com there will be some policing issues, at which point i guess Steve will have to make some people mods, but still its going to be a hassle as it grows

i agree were a long way off from this sites destruction.

im sure steve will keep this site as is.

I am one of the newer users hear. So the following will sound stupid/ asshole-ish coming from me:
Currently we all can manage reading nearly all the threads (or at least all the ones that seem to interest us). Eventually when there are a lot more members it will be much harder to view every thread and read every log. This is why i "worry" over the sites expansion(sp). Right now i view everyones log (although guys who have a supplement name as the title i sometimes miss, becuase i think its an advertisement for a supp). Eventually when i cant do this it will make these forums less home-y (this sounds weird like "yo homey"). I have to think at some point i wont care to view new guys logs... not to be an ass, but even with my lack of a social life(due to private school being so fucking far away)/always on the computer when im home i just dont think i would even want to spend that much time here (although i love the site).

-Point is i think the more users, the more distant i will be from new users

Thanks Jwood.

One thing that will prevent this forum from "turning" into a lunatic factory is me. I have a couple goals:

1) To make this site a fulltime living.
2) To not turn it into a circus/car accident...with the purpose of drawing eyes for supplement sales.

Hear this => I DON'T need to make a boatload of cash a year. I'm not greedy. If I can get away from having my own supplement store here at MAB, I will. Why? Because supplement sales impact how you do business.

If I can make a living off advertising revenue, and have some good supplement partners like IPYU and M&S, all will be good. My life priorities are not monetary. My life priorities deal with family, friends, and making just enough money to work from home.

Sure, over time we will get dissenting opinions on the board. But discussion will ALWAYS remain respectful. Real men treat other men with respect.

To quote Body By Gamma, MAB will always be about Smashing Fucking Weights. I don't care how you do it...just do it.

In the end we will respect one another by what we do, and not by what we know. That is MAB. That will always be MAB. It is more important to move weight and grow muscle then it is to talk about moving weight and to talk about growing muscle.

That is why members must post pictures to give hardcore advice. It's a trust factor. I post on several other forums and none of them require pictures. You have no freaking clue who's giving advice.

At the end of the day, you can read my slant on training, and align that with my log and pictures. And decide for yourself your direction.

I could easily run my mouth, put up a bullshit avatar, and act like King Shit. Any of us could. But I won't, and I don't. And I won't let anyone else do that. I don't want to be a guru. I'm just a hairy, smelly man who loves lifting and his wife, and I want to share that passion with other lifters with a sincere desire to overcome.

Man, I get so tired of forums where "experts" have 50,000 posts and not one single image. Excuse my language...but shut your damn mouth and put up a fucking photo.

This attitude will prevent MAB from being a house of trolls.

Last year I was nearly run off BB.com from some asscake know-it-all who wanted to debate me. He had all his troll friends neg rape me because he believed you didn't need to squat to get big. I confronted him, and asked for a picture. And you know what? He looked like my mother - thin and frail.

I've also had confrontations on other forums with "naturals" who've claimed to weigh 230 pounds ripped and have 20 inch natural arms. But guess what? No pictures! And guess what else? They were pimping their training program like it was God's gift to the universe.

I'm not going to pimp anything other then hard work. If you want results, go ram it in the gym! Find your own way - a way that works for you. Seek advice, ask questions, and encourage others! Ultimately nothing works better then determination.

I want to see each of you succeed. Read that again. That is all that matters to me. I want to be surrounded my men that impact me. And I hope to impact other men.

I don't want to sell you supplements. Or a training program. Or on myself. MAB is not about that. I will not submit to the industry. There's too much of that already. This is what trolls will get at MAB...
