    Ok so here's the situation.

    Bodybuilding.com forums are supposed to be a place where gym goers / serious lifters / people who take care of their bodies (ok and steroid "injectors") come to share experiences and get inspiration and new info on training related issues.

    But what the fuck is wrong with ALL members on those boards?
    I am not a member there, but I check threads from time to time for training info. It's like flaming thread wars ALL THE TIME.

    NEGATIVITY ALL THE TIME. You never find anyone talking in a good way about any other member. Whatever the topic posted, homophobia, sarcasm (the bad form of sarcasm mind you), threats and insults are all that is hurled at the OP or each other.

    Anyone noticed this before? I mean that is a leading fitness forum, you expect civilized people with a minority of douchebags (like is the case here). But there you don't find any good members AT ALL.

    Just your typical "dudes" talking on that site. The site has really great workout advices but yeah, the forum can be very douchy and homophobic.

    You forgot to mention that some of the numbers quoted for 1 rep maxes are rather fanciful icon_wink.gif
