I can't imagine the type of depraved person that would honestly troll the beginners section. How wrong are you in the head to do that?
So... In that vein I just assume the newest blind member that feels the need to lead the other blind is honestly "trying to help". We've all been there, and I get it, but...
Here is a tip to would be posters who are newbs themselves:
It doesn't matter how many videos or studies or articles you have read, if you haven't lived it or trained someone directly to success stop giving advice.
Here is a tip about who to listen to:
Would you hire someone who just graduated law school with a 4.0 to defend you in a murder case over the guy who has been working in REAL WORLD for 7 years and defended 13 murder cases so far? No, so stop taking advice from other beginners that haven't accomplished anything but logging >9000 hours watching scoopy on youtube and reading about lifting. There comes a point where you have to put your book knowledge to use, or it becomes a waste of time to have "learned" it in the first place.
Every college junior thinks they have it all figured out, and they know more than everyone else. It typically takes working in the industry before they realize how much they really just don't know. If you can't apply your "knowledge", you really don't know it.
This forum is a clusterbomb and the vets that could be helping aren't getting paid for it, so it makes it tough to wade through a million posts that are awful to answer a simple question. To add to it: answering a question is one thing, but to have to spend 4 posts refuting the idiocy of others is just too much after awhile.
