    So. I have to share this story. I'm at my new bank, just for the day and I met a new customer. He said "Hi, I have a twin brother. We're nothing alike. He's bald with a small pee pee." This will so be interesting.

    because 80% of the post now a days have nothing to do with Muscle and strength. I personal get bored with all the off the wall newbie questions and than those that just want to be spoon fed. plus, others are being asked to look at another forum.(no ban hammer, it is a fact.) IMO, if it weren't for all the logs and this random thread, forum would have very little if any traffic

    Inclined to agree, though I send people here to check out the workouts and logs, when it suits their goals.

    I've belonged to 5 different forums, fitness ones, but now stick with only two.

    Never noticed but I wasn't around on any forum much over that period so it would have passed me by, pretty much.

    Definitely agree with this, there was a disgruntled forum when that first occurred, some settled and just left it, other left or hung around without really being part of it any more.

    Wow sounds like it's been an interesting time. Good to see you guys again though! Isn't MS's main purpose the store? I'm sure that's still doing well, they always had the best deals. And I'm sure the workouts are still all good. shame about the forum though.

    so when and what happened. I took about 6 months off from forum and don't really recall. I remember anabolic addiction messed a few around with their supps, but that was a couple yrs ago, I think

    I have no idea about what happened around New Year, you'd have to ask others that were here at the time, I wasn't on much as I said.

    I do recall, a few years ago (not sure how many) there were two specific things that really ticked members off and I think that's when all the change began, to be truthful. However, I have no intentions of discussing either of those specifics because I can't be hassled to take the flak...someone else can do that, if they're so inclined....but, from my viewpoint, life's too short for that, given that hubby nearly died less than two years ago now, iI have more important things that deserve my attention.



    Sometimes, I sit and watch to see how long it takes people to get a reply to a good question and I sit and still nobody responds, that's what's saddening, a fitness oriented forum where people are overlooked/ignored and all because they don't fit the "healthy" category to start with. So, is it better to suggest somewhere they can get advice or to leave them to sit and get no advice? That's the million dollar question, as they say. If they're left, they get nothing but it's wrong to suggest somewhere else where they will get advice?


    Oddly, the only other forum I was given the name of was by Damien himself (the owner, for those that don't know that) all other forums that I belong to, I've searched out myself and found many ex-members from here on 5 other forums (I forgot the UK based one, in which WilliamTeo was found, much to my surprise). I'm sure members are spread far and wide as they are on any other forum, they come from other forums to here and they go from here...it's just how it is.

    Ban?

    Why in the world would you get banned here for saying something like that?

    I do not ban people like that. Never have.

    Facebook is killing forums.

    People keep migrating to Facebook and posting less in conventional forums.

    I wish it weren't so but I can't stop people from using Facebook.

    I seriously don't think sarcasm is gonna help this issue.

    Post more...hmmm, 18,000+ posts the issues are still there, I thank HDJoe, Rand and Beatdiabetes for responding to the guys thread, at least. I brought the issue up and people responded but that shouldn't need to be how it works.
