When I called him on it, he denied it. So, I quoted his post and then he tried to change his story. They all even chased Big j away and Spart, as far as I know. I just couldn't take it anymore mentally. Another issue that was totally non sense was the locking out vs not locking out bench press. The list goes on and on.
I now understand why you left. I dont blame you at all. I have noticed a change on the site. It does seem like bb v. pl which is unfortunate. We all are suppose to help/support/encourage everyone involved. I think sometimes ppl forget that. The lock out vs not locking out argument was also getting real old. I have just tried to look past that. Unfortunately those issues are going to always exist. Filter out the BS and move on.

Grow up to be the Man you're suppose to be, not the one you think you are.
It just takes time and it takes the heart to keep moving through the tough times.
I just want a place where I can be left alone to get strong and work off some aggression.
