    My Rant!!!

    Before I get started, I don't need anybody stroking my ego or telling me I'm right. If you agree, great, I'm glad. If you disagree...well that's your perogative too....but honestly I don't give a fuck!!

    I have noticed recently that there have been alot more threads/posts with negative slants. Whether they have been racist, homophobic, sexist or just plain childish and immature, the have been proliferating and to be honest I'm beginning to get pissed off!!! I've seen many threads in which members have complained about administartion and moderators because they feel their rights of freedom of speech have been violated or they feel they are being censored in what they post. They have claimed that they are just expressing their opinion and whine and bitch when they cannot use whatever colorful language to help get their point across!! Their have been posts telling fictional stories, supposedly for entertainment purposes, that have had absolutely NO relevance to this board and it's purpose at all!! Sure, they were posted in the AR lounge for entertainment purposes only, but these posters only ever posted in the AR lounge...so why in the fuck are they here in the first place??? To entertain us?? Fuck that!! If I want to be entertained I'll rent a movie!! Same goes for the dickheads who only ever post in the Pics forum and only ever offer negative responses. Grow the fuck up!! or at least post your own pics!! I understand that the AR Lounge is a place to interact with online friends but AR is still, first and foremost, a message board dedicated to BBing and AAS. So if you are not interested in learning about them or helping out...why in the fuck are you even here?!?!?! I've sat back and ignored the posts/threads that I find offensive, but I won't do it anymore!! If I find something offensive, I'm going to envoke my right as a board member to express my opinion!!! Afterall, as soon as we step in to attempt to keep things in line, some people bitch about their rights to say what they want...well geuss what, the shit rope swings both ways ladies!! I'm sick and fucking tired of tip toeing around threads/posts because of my mod status and the concern that somebody may accuse me of misusing my title. Well that's too fucking bad!!! I was one of the first members here...I have put in years, I have helped hundreds, I have done a lot for this board and this community and I DESERVE to be able to tell it like I see it!!! I joined here and remained here, exclusivly mind you, because this board is differen't. The things I like/liked about this board are our policies on no flaming, no discrimination, no porn and no immature fighting. To anybody who wants those things and feel that their rights are being infringed upon because we don't allow them here.....TOO FUCKING BAD!!!! I've seen the posts that say "we don't like the direction this board is headed" stating that it is too regimented and accusing us of nazi censorship. It is posts like this that make my blood boil!! I've said this a hundred thousand times....if you don't like it leave!!! Get the fuck out!!! Go elsewhere and whine, start a fucking thread about evil AR, I don't five a rats ass....god knows it wouldn't be the first time!! Just because you have a few hundred posts (90% in the AR lounge) does not give you the right to attempt to change the way things have been done here from day 1....so if you ain't happy...GET TA STEPPIN!!!!! The day this board become inondated with the same childish ignorant crap I've seen on other boards, is the day I tender my resignation, and I can assure you...I will fight tooth and nail to prevent that from happening!!!

    I agree with you(not stroking your ego). I used to be on the Elite Fitness boards until I found AR. Their "lounge was good for a while until boneheads started posting crap. I think the mods should do what they can to ban/suspend people who do nothing for board. It's fine to have a difference of opinion, but you guys know what
    I'm talking about.

    This board is focused on training, AAS, nutrition and other fitness info. This isn't a site for kids to come when their bored so they can start shit. I think that's what happens. People find the "lounge" section of a bored and live there, and those people have no training experience or even intentions of getting fit. Ok, i'm done. REDROCK

    Go pete, go pete, go pete.....

    I do not think you are being out of line at all. I just wish I could say that I contribute knowledege to this board, and am able to post in all the forums. However, I do not have near enough knowledge to advise people on AAS use or BB...BUT I wish i did! I read everything I can...just can't post much....I hope to change that in time!

    Oh...and thanks for doing your job as well as your duty as an AR member.

    im curious as to how a newbie member would even know as to what pete is referring to.........

    absolution,
    you have no idea whats passed through here, and what kind of shit we deal with. and quite frankly, i dont care if youre a newbie member that "just reads" and "never posts"(meaning youve been here a while, but dont voice your opinions), you still dont know what we deal with every day here. pete as voiced his opinion, and youve voiced yours....lets let it go at that.

    pete,
    i'm behind this all the way bro, i'm also tired of the tip-toeing around this stuff too. i'm sure we can toughen things up around here, as well as clean it up some too.

    peace I4L

    Absolution,
    I went through a long post trying to answer point for point what I thought was trying to be expressed and the areas I felt you were missing those points. Then I came to the realization that anyone who would sign up under a new user name to criticize a Mod for hiding behind his title isn't worth the effort. Why do you need three user ID's on this board anyway? You had better PM me with the one you want to keep or I will ban all three since this is traditionally a scammers trick.

    I fear if i speak my mind i will get banned. And i'm sure i'm not the only one who feels this way about this post.

    Well can you show me one instance where a member has expressed his view in a respectful and intelligent manner and ever been banned at least since I have been a moderator. There have been countless numbers of threads bashing the board, the moderators, even the company that pays for it and I can't think of a single instance where someone has been banned simply for speaking their opinion as long as it was in accordance with the board rules.

    Pete is talking about offensive threads and slang words. I just find this humorous coming from someone who sports an avatar of the Trailer park boys.

    i agree on this I did post one makeing fun of the hits and posts threads get if they have the word penis or underwear or this is the grossest thing i have seen. The thing is that posts of this nature intriuge people I know it does me. Im just going to say that if you are going to crack down then please make a list of things not to post in the lounge (I know there probably is one but I never looked at it because im a lazy ass). I know this may sound disrespectfull but isnt a lounge exactly that. What do you people talk about in a lounge whatever comes to mind right? On the other hand this board is a privilege and should not be abused in anyway. I am a firm believer that anyone who decides to start living in the lounge will either get back to the old ways of helping people or they will just drift away. I admit to this shucking of responsability but i have recently become guilty and at least looked at the supplement forum. I will drift back into the system and try not to post whore much more here.
    thankyou for your time

    i do agree with absolution on one thing though
    the use of profanity in your post is just as bad as what you are preaching against. I for one am offended by the use of the F-word I say it all the time and I sound like a Wyoming Hick. I really would like to quit but that isnt really possible when I see it and hear it everywhere. Garbage in Garbage out. Pete I don't see why you as a moderater can post such garbage. Using power to say my ears are shut but my mouth is wide open. This is fairly asanine and arrogant on your part.

    I hope your just doing this to see who belives you are being serious and if you are then god have mercy on your soul.

    If the purpose is to be funny then you probably want to include some weird pictures and other things in your post because noones laughing.

    This is why i shouldn't have said anything. I didn't fail to understand his post at all. I guess I'm the only member to have the balls to say i disagree with my real name, or even post at all.

    Absolution is not a new member but I do know who it is. As I4L stated, as long as you state your opinion in a logical manner as you did you are free to voice your opinions without getting canned.

    Pete is one of our oldest mods and has dedicated countless hours for AR as as such has more than earned the right to speak on what he feels like. Our members also have the right to present their opinion.

    That said - this isnt a popularity contest - and frankly I dont care who likes me or any other mod here - what I do care about is that what is done is right - whether its popular or not.

    First of all, AR is a place of certain values, upon which our rules are based, which are then enforced by our mods and to some degree our members as well. No single mod makes those rules and in enforcement are answerable to myself and other Smods, who in turn are answerable to Ptby and the owner. A mod can state his opinion or frustration without necessarily making policy.

    Lord knows I have felt like booting 1/2 of you at one time or another - but I have restrained myself, even with those I have seriously disagreed with, in order to conform to the values and rules we have here. Therefore, you do not have to like mods, nor agree with them - as we also are members - yet all posts should be set forth with AR values in mind.

    With this as a guide, I have no problem with off topic posts, even those that are strange or controversial - I do think that it is not within our values to tollerate posts or members that are clearly intent upon spewing hatred, overt purience or extreme filth in language - and accordingly will do my best to ensure that execution of sanctions resulting from such are performed in a fair and equitable manner. I will also do my best to ensure that AR is still a place where we can all have fun and not be afraid to state our opinions in an educated manner due to the fear of other's unwarranted hypersensitivity. It can be a delicate balance sometimes but it is one of the things that IMO, make AR and its members special.

    Heh that's why I stay out of the lounge for the most part and stick to the AAS forum to help out when i can. Lounge forums always end up with people getting bent out of shape and cause a lot of drama, I try and stear clear of it whenever possible. Guys who are complaing about the rules, deal with it, seriously. This is their house, you're a visitor who they have let into their house, respect it. You wouldn't go over a buddies house and start complaining about you not liking how it was would you?

    Crap, I guess not....and that was how I planned on making a living. You know, be one of those guys that goes into other people's homes and sorta complains about things. Hell, I guess I'm just a bit nostalgic...the "home complainer" went the way of the "door-to-door" salesman" in the late 1970's - I suppose i'd better get used to the times we live in.

    this is pretty much how i feel. i've been here for 12 months. it took me 1-2 months to learn what >i< need to know about steriods (i.e. enough to have my first cycle planned), 1 month to get my workout split in good order, and 2-3 months to have a decent idea about what my diet should be. so its lounge time for me, baby! i love the lounge, its like what i wish real life was like...socializing with people who are into the same shit as you. granted i don't know everything about everything (i still have TONS to learn about nutrition), but i feel i'm educated enough to not have to spend 4 hours a day reading stuff in the diet forum (which i used to do...=P). i do post in the workout forum and the diet forum still though. and some in the roid forum when i learn new things like you can make homemade fina...=P but definantly not as much as i used to back when i was a >complete< newbie.

    and about not contributing back... first off, even after a year of hanging out here, i've never done an AAS cycle. and on top of that, i'm not very big at all. so honesty i don't feel that my opinion holds as much weight as some of the more muscularly developed members. i'd hate to be "that guy" who's always posting his opinions on workout/diet/roids when his phsique is subpar...=P

    well i guess this reply has turned into "why clocky posts 90% of his posts in the lounge"...oh well...=)

    Absolution,

    I don't always agree with Pete either but I have the ballz to use my own name when I don't agree with him. I am really shocked that a member who has been here as much as you have can not use his own name. I'm pretty sure all the mods know who you are. If they don't they will soon. I've completely lost any respect that I might have had for you.

    BTW maybe I missed it but I didn't see anything in Petes post about fowl luggage. If there was I'd be logging on with my fake user name right now tellin him to F#@$ off.

    What he's talking about here (at least I think ) are the raciest, sexiest, and completely disrespectful post as of late. Maybe some of the useless topics that get discussed ED. BTW how many times do we need to go over shaving "Mr happy", underwear, or worst of all teenage girls. Once or twice was fine but theres a new one ED. I like to visit the lounge. I have nothing against threads that are colorful or off the topic of this board. Just not the same trash every single day.

    I have no opinion to state here personally since I'm sure much of what Pete has said here can be directed at me as well. I will say, however, that I don't condone anger of any form. Unless a certain CYCLEON keeps staring at your genitals in which case I would question your motives if you didn't get a little peeved.

    i could be accused of this type of posting too, but

    i would like to think it's in good fun.i never try to be offensive, hateful, or disrespectful. i think if you keep things light around here it creates a more family feel, but when the posts get too lax in that they become offensive it's a bit much. if we hold ourselves to a higher standard than the deadbeats who posts garbage it's easy to see who is out of line. it's like the time pete was staring at my genitalia..i just politely asked him, "please pete, my balls are kinda shy and you're scaring them!" he stopped from that day on.problem solved. what is it w/ these mods and looking at balls?

    We were chosen based specifically on our abilities to stare down a hefty set of gonads. CYCLEON chose us himself. Anyways, I'll shut up and let this get back to what Pete posted it for. I just wanted to clarify that I, personally, say things only in jest and try to hold myself within the limits here as much as possible. I use Elite to get out of control at times when I feel the need.

    I can't say a whole lot because I haven't been here as long as alot of these guys but I will say that whenever I come into the AR lounge these days I feel like I am walking into a high school party! I don't post much anymore due to this fact.

    I will peruse the Steroids Forum and post when I feel I have some valuable input to add but I feel that it is rare that a question that hasn't been answered 100 times gets asked. Its gets old answering boiler plate questions sometimes. I mainly hang out in the AR lounge so I can read some of the posts from the guys (and gals) I respect. You always see something new everyday.

    People have said it before and I will re-iterate. When you sign up for a membership you are obligated to read the rules. If a Mod tries to enforce rules that don't exist then, by all means, that Mod should be questioned. I don't see that happening here. Nobody has any right to come here and break the rules and to expect to get away with it.

    It is dis-heartening to see all the immaturity amongst the BB community. That is what happens when you make it all too easy for anonymous people to join any board they see fit. I can remember in the BBS days when you had to fax a copy of your ID in order to join an adult Bulletin Board.

    I love AR and I will probably always call it my home board. I look forward to a long membership, and I hope that things will change. Unless the Mods put there foot down and adopt a "no tolerence" attitude then I think that the people who make it miserable for all the respected bro's are going to keep stretching the boundaries.

    And registering as a different member for the sole purpose of disagreeing with Pete is big? If I didn't have the ability to easily know about your other 2 identities (one of which posts regularly) I'd be even more upset right now. You're deceiving your fellow members and I doubt they'll ever forgive you. If you hated the board so much you would have left by now, but you don't - you get a thrill out of complaining and causing a stir. Other members that voice their complaints are at least doing it with sincerity.

    I see it plain and simple, the rules are posted, the mods inforce the rules, you follow the rules.... no problem, you break the rules... you got a problem. What's so hard to understand about that?

    That is almost a hiku in clarity

    3) Made up stories for your entertainment. How do you know these stories are made up? Just because you feel the person is unbelievable
    4) So just because you tip toed around long enough, now you are entitled to use THE SAME profanity and vulgar language as the members you are complaining about?
    5) You are a mod and we should applaud your thread and say YAY someone stepped forward and confronted these members?
    6) For one, you hide behind your status and talk shit about the members yet you cant say whom you are complaining about? Thats big of you.
    7) For two. your thread seems to be the worst of them all. I think EVERY sentence had a cuss word or some representative form of such
    8) For three. why would we stroke your ego? You make it seem like 19 out of 20 threads is offensive when it is only maybe 1 out of every 100 posted and just because you take notice of that ONE thread DOES NOT mean this board is going to shit.
    9) The board goes to shit when the MODs explode and feel it is ok to VENT a shit load of frustration ALL of a sudden just because they sat by quietly.
    NICE. You need to relax and GROW a sense of humor and learn to live with other people whom dont express your point of view.
    1) Not at all, what I am saying is I joined here to learn about AAS and related subjects. If your reasoning for joining is soley to "interact", I'm questioning your motives behind chosing a site like this when there are plenty of great chat rooms out there that are not related to AAS.

    2) Once again, why else would you have joined "ANABOLIC " Review?

    3) Are you telling me that you actually believe that Sir Victorian Guy and his sidekick Nobby go around to gyms in England beating people with motorcycle chains? If so you are an idiot.

    4) Did you even read the fucking post? Or did you just breeze through it? I did NOT say I had a problem with vulgarity!! I said I had a problem with discrimination, racism, sexism, flaming and immaturity. If you're going to make a point in the future, do us all a favor, try to be accurate so you don't look stupid.

    5) Once again, you obviously missed some of the thread including the opening statement "Before I get started, I don't need anybody stroking my ego or telling me I'm right". See my above conclusion....that's two times in a row you looked stupid.

    6) You want to know who this is directed at? Anybody....and I mean ANYBODY, who routinly acts like this privately owned board (yes, even though the net is public domain, this board is privately owned) is their personal domain to say whatever they feel regardless of the guidelines that have been layed down, and then bitch when they are reprimanded because they feel their rights were infringed upon. Then again, I thought that was abundantly clear in my post as well. I guess maybe your comprehension is as weak as your perception. Oh, BTW....speaking of hiding behind something (like maybe a new user name), have you ever heard the saying "the pot calling the kettle black"?

    7) See item 4). You seem to be reading something that is non-existant, can you please show me were I said I was opposed to vulagaity?

    8) Well thank you for monitoring the AR lounge so carefully. 1 out of every 100 threads is offensive?That's a pretty astute observation for sombody who just joined and has 2 posts....then again you have probably been reading the board for months, you just didn't have anything interesting or relevant to add.

    9) Thank you for sharing you valuable advice. I see your 400+ posts (mostly in the lounge) have made you an expert on how this board should be run as well as what constitutes it "going to shit". Maybe we should make you a moderator.

    Just as I asked the clown in the above post, could you please point out were I say I have a problem with vulgarity? Slang words and profane language have an entirly differen't meaning that slang words that describe a person ethnicity or sexual orientation. You must have selective comprehension as well. Either that or the post was too long winded to read through in it's entirety. I thought that it was VERY clear that the offensive posts I was refering to were the posts that contained discrimination, racism, sexism and flamming...which in case you were unaware are against our rules...then again I though I mentioned that in my post as well. I guess I should have listed those items 3 or 4 times instead of twice as two times was not enough for you to grasp what I was talking about.

    It seems like no matter what, mods are criticized. If they are too soft, they get talked bad about, and when they enforce the rules, they get flamed. I'm sick of it. The rules have been stated, if you don't like them, you have the right to leave. We won't force you to stay here. Every other board on the net has very relaxed moderation that allows flaming and countless other things that we don't want on here. I want this board to be above all of that. So if you like those kinds of boards where there are not many rules to follow, go to where you feel comfortable. There are no hard feelings. This board cannot please everyone and myself and the moderators have to learn that. So if you are more comfortable in a different type of environment, then I will be happy for you when you find that other board.

    I have no idea why someone would hide behind another username to state a point. If you hate this board so much and you take that much time and effort to flame a mod, you should have spent that precious time surfing for another board because you did nothing to change the situation.

    There is always going to be a separation among opinion on how hard or soft this boards rules should be. But we are going to keep the rules that made this board stand out from the beginning and have the reputation that made other boards want to be just like us. (Since AR first started I have had at least 2 or 3 admins of new boards tell me that they used AR as the model for their boards. That meant a lot to me.) We want AR to take the high road and be picky and have rules that people follow. I know we won't please all of you, but we appeal to a certain type of member and that's the way we want it to be.

    So if you are wanting to take the time to flame right now, please don't bother. Just go find another board and save us all the trouble.
