What is this site "REALLY" about?

    I joined thinking I'd get good info. There are hundreds of thousands of disturbingly HOT gay men out there - especially in New York (where I am) but I don't see any real substantial info on this site. What's up with that? I just read a post with the question of "the best way to loose fat/gain muscle" - no one had a decent response! It seems this site is F_L_U_F_F

    Sad, it could be so much better!

    yea i kind of feel the same way...

    it's like a gay-gym-personals-site.

    i asked something on the forum (which i'm sure is very common) and no one answered except for one nice guy who wrote to me on a message.

    regardless i think it's a cool site.

    i just wish people were really about putting up their experiences and advice on health and fitness. that, AND also the enjoyment of having it be gay-oriented which is fun.

    You have to remember guys that sometimes you need to do the homework for yourselves. Many guys will happily give you some pointers but it gets really tiring explaining the basics over and over, and then very often not even receive so much as a thank-you.

    I look at this site as a less cruisy version dudesnude, coupled with some fun sports chat. If what you're looking for is a advice site, check out any number of body building sites (there are hundreds) But don't expect anyone to do the leg work for you.

    That said, once you've tucked some solid basic info under your belt, ask specific questions, and you can expect better responses.

    Cheers,

    Eric

    Agreed. I think this site is more about being supportive of two things that all of us are:

    keen on fitness and health
    gay

    we can share information about workouts while also checking out other hot guys. perfect blend if you ask me.

    If you don't like some of the topics, lack and/or content on some of the responses, stand up and change it...

    The web is full of data... data that you have to take and turn into information that you can use. Some is useful, some a waste of time; but make what you can of it, and if it bothers you that much, start a revolution; do something about it...

    Otherwise, take it for face value and move on...

    Seek and Ye shall find...there's alot of good info on here along with the "Fluff" as you call it
    There are plenty of fitness sites where the homoerotica is a bit more discreet but its still there
    But there is some good tips here on the forums and in the posted articles and workouts
    ...time to start readin' my man

    For a somewhat new site, I think it has some decent information. I've learned a bit I'll say.

    Keep in mind the site isn't only, obviously, about fitness for some.

    It's coming along nicely I think and after all it is what we make of it. I hear you're point of view though.
