That's actually me in this jackass' avatar. He stole my "before" pics taken in August that I originally had posted here (pics that were actually taken after a two year hiatus), ran over to bb.com's forums and said he was a natty --and a cancer survivor to boot-- who had been lifting for over a year... and thus started a 30 PAGE FLAME WAR!!!
I e-mailed the Mods over there and they promptly deleted the thread, but I've since found my pics and links to them on two other forums and luckily, I've had them removed as well. The parody Flex cover and Bowflex ad are still at large though
Naturally, the dudes over there laid into him (or me, actually) saying how fat he was and pointing out every little fault and the dude just snowballed the whole situation with his childish counter attacks. What I'm asking from you guys is to let me know if you see them and let me and whatever forum admin know right away.
I am considering legal action.
Anyway, what the hell would motivate some loser to do this? He even went so far as to steal pics from my Myspace to "authenticate" who he was claiming to be.
A good thing that has come from this has been that it has lit a new fire in my training. Before progress had been hampered by a few nagging old injuries and my job (some days I work 8 hours, some days I work 12... and weekends). I have definitely lost a lot off the gut since those pics were taken and the delts have taken shape significantly just from turning wrenches at my job. I've been doing the home workout thing because of X-Mas and moving expenses, but I'll be joining a gym first thing once the finances are organized and permitting.
Blech. This is such BS. I can't believe some clown would do this. But if reading through those other forums proved anything, it proved why I post here @ WBB!!! You guys rock!
