Right, HST isn’t the most active forum, but that’s a quantity question. I signed up here because people really know things, so the quality is there. HST members don’t resort to snobbish comments if you ask a “dumb” question. Besides, I can’t remember having seen rough language around here, and I think it’s worth the effort to keep it that way. As scientific muscle has realized, if it weren’t for Mark Rippetoe, the forum would be dead by now. I don’t like the fact that Rippetoe sometimes lets himself drag down to certain levels. No, I’m not a snob; I just think that people who are looked up to should be a little bit more careful with the kind of language they use and comments they make – even in the bodybuilding / powerlifting game. If I post a question here, I know that someone will answer. Even if the answer is not satisfactory, I know that person has genuinely tried to help. On other forums, you often have to put up with a couple of sarcastic and / or offensive comments before someone actually has the idea to come up with an answer. Don’t be surprised if the answer is just parroted; they actually don’t know anything and want to make you believe they’re gurus. HST could have similar discussions. But most people I have met around here seem to be much more educated than anybody would expect from a typical lifter. Chances are that most people here will actively search for an answer so the discussion isn’t going to happen. That’s not a bad thing because HST is one of the very few forums where you can still follow each new thread.
