The question is: why do many good posters like Varq or pookie go rogue?
This should come as no surprise -if not: surprise!- PWI is full of cunts.
I think they just grow out of this place. That certainly appears to be what happened with pook, as he popped in a couple of times and half-ass posted, but quickly disappeared again.
I seem to remember Varq got banned, or something similar, for whatever reason.
I sure would like to know what forlife is up to.
I made friends with the Bodyguard after a fierce enmity, and he had some of the most solid rhetoric on this site, if you could look past the ego and bragadoccio.
I dearly miss Rainjack. He left, as I understand it, because he’s a stubborn ass with a Texas-sized ego that could not allow a certain slight to go unanswered. So he took his toys and went home. I think it’s a damned shame, but that kind of finality of decision was what made Rainjack Rainjack.
I liked PRCalGuy, too.

Forlife is probably still around, he told me once in PM that he posted under another name as well. When he did his gay dance he popped into the forlife name. But was also apparently active under another screen name.
What happened with Rainjack do you recall the specifics? He was one of my favorites around here. He once told me that the only thing we disagree on is bench pressing and tuna fish. He being a fan of both and me not so much.[/quote]
I may be misremembering, but I believe there was a conflict of interest involving this and one of his websites or businesses. He was chastised and warned not to overstep his bounds again and, instead of agreeing, he gave T-Nation the finger and said he’d never post here again. And didn’t.
Please someone tell me if I’m just the guy screwing up at telephone game here, but I believe I have most of that right. [/quote]
Was Rainjack selling supplements? He’d almost have to be right?
He owned one of the more well-known research chemical companies (primarily AAS ancillaries and peptides “For research purposes only. Not for human consumption winkwinknodnod”). Related field, and obliquely competitive with Biotest, I guess. He was NOT banned, from what I understand, though. I seem to recall it having as much to do with Rainjack’s famed intractability as anything else.
