    Ariodante took down all his photos, then he put them back. Now he's gone?
    I"m sorry Onaquest left. He was a nice guy.
    Does anyone know why these guys left?

    onaquest was trolled off the site by yourname2000 and JP/Cranky

    I think Greenhopper wasn't happy with some of the negativity on here

    No idea about the rest except poor dontknowwhy, who was removed simply for calling people out on being butthurt icon_sad.gif

    Greenhopper has a lot going on at the moment with moving for study, etc.

    Ariodanteade comments a couple of weeks about upcoming sex meet - perhaps he has a new man who doesn't like him
    Being on here?

    Me and Green have discussed leaving the site entirely. There's not room for much more growth here and the people have become entirely too stale. It's unnecessary drama in a small part of our lives that we no longer wish to have. My activity has waned, he was tired of it altogether. Same ol' shit, different day. Monotonous to say the least.

    But I feel like a lot of the negativity has died down recently?

    Growth is what we placed emphasis on when we talked. There's not much more to be gained from here other than various pop culture things.

    What's dudesnude like? I think justusboys is the largest gay forum.
    I like popular forums where I get replies really fast.

    Without the negativity, there really isn't much left other than "would you herp the guy above you's derp" x 1000, DIN and Clay spam, and sock account battles in the politics forum.

    I feel like it's pretty much been that way since I joined...there are still threads with people genuinely seeking advice, but no one pays them any attention...sooo

    Yep, this is very much true. The site has deviated so far from its intended purpose it is truly beyond salvation. I joined to meet other fitness-minded guys. Most of the exhibit A's on here just want to exchange private pics (mine aren't n00dz, for the record) or jerk off on Skype.

    The quality of the drama is also in rapid decline, with 7Famark, yourname2000, CJAZ, and I being the only skilled flame warriors who actively participate when conflict arises.

    The left's hateful, logic-less vitriol in the politics subforum and the conservaposse's armada of sock accounts are not improving that area of the site any... that used to be one of my favorite subforums until condescending douchebags like Rickrick, Christian, Meninlove, and Exmil8 took over and went ad hominem at anyone right of center.

    The bottom line is, we need more interesting things to talk about than "would you herp the guy above you in the derp" - a lot of this lack of interest has come from unverified and headless people posting, thinking with their dicks instead of generating interesting threads.

    You make some very good points Firebrand, unfortunately I am
    In the same situation as 7Famark having only joined relatively recently and there has always been the same shit going on - albeit getting progressively worse.

    Which is why Ariodante left?

    I mean honestly, it's a health and fitness site, yet this constant talking of bacon and cookies at every opportunity to derail threads (not that I pointing the finger solely at Ad)

    It used to not be that way, like back in '09. However, the site has really lost its way. Case in point:

    I made a thread a few weeks ago about keeping my abs while bulking. It got like 15 replies.

    I made a flame war a few weeks back about monogamy vs open relationships. It got 100-some replies.

    I made "unlock your private photos for the guy above you" in 2010. It has 5682 replies and is still active.

    Fitness is clearly not one of this community's priorities whatsoever.

    Well...I do agree that is an issue. I understand there are no regulation methods to actually screen for if members give half a shit about fitness...but a topic like "how not to lose my abs" isn't really a hot-button issue, it isn't going to spark as much debate as the monogamy v. open relationships type of thread...I don't know, I think it's what you make of it. I find myself enjoying the site more when I don't get wrapped up in the bull shit.

    But without the drama, what's really left anymore? A community of Clay & DIN spam, and guy above you threads? I miss the old RJ, with BELLO being the only troll (and an infamous one at that), the majority of threads being of substance, and more inter-member drama instead of arguments that turn into ad hominem condescension on both sides.

    I can't really speak to that since I've never experienced that on RealJock...

    People have been shitty and dramatic pretty much since day one as far as I can remember

    Yeah, it's been like that since like late 2010/early 2011.

    Not much that can be done about it anymore, sadly... you missed out. You would've loved the old RJ.

    I've already planned my final thread, and it's a serious one... I'm not really getting anything out of this site anymore (not even lulz, wrecking the same people over and over gets boringgggggggg) and I don't think I'm the only one who shares that sentiment.
