Re: A Must Read - 70s Big Style!

A very fair and even-handed article. I enjoyed reading that.

I find the couch thread the biggest waste of internet space in existence.

Yeah, I don't understand his stubbornness with that. It's not the only dumb thing he's said or posted (hell, that stupid thing about CF being better for building muscle than bodybuilding is STILL in the FAQ), yet I've never heard of even a general retraction. Something along the lines of "we were pretty excited at the time about the results we were seeing and overestimated where it would go" would be pretty easy.

Maybe he was blackout drunk when he said it? Plausible deniability?

I have NO idea, but my best guess is that it is really low down on the priority list and the guy has a ton of bigger fish to fry with his incredibly rapidly growing business.

True enough but he did have the chance a while back to "reword" himself but instead he stuck with it
