This is too funny, but it only dates to 2005 and I’ve been a member since at least 2002. Here it is, my reply to a first-person article/review of Alpha Male:
I don’t usually post but it occurred to me after reading this that you guys, dare I say it, are stooping to some pretty pedestrian marketing attempts to push a product. This is both insult and back-handled compliment because I’ve grown accustomed to a higher level of truth in these pages…you know, the “dangerously hardcore” bit. But this was a “puff piece” if I’ve ever read one. I won’t nit pick; I’ll just point out the most obvious; First, this guy doesn’t give his age. No workout stats. On the very pages where a workout log is a dogmatic command (that should be followed), the article contains nothing tangible about the quality of the workout in terms of weight/volume moved etc. Nothing about bodyfat. In sum, nothing of SUBSTANCE. And lastly, I’d come to expect blood work from someone “test driving” a supplement alleged to have a positive effect on T. Sorry guys, you’re slipping and on this one, it’s very noticable.
Please do us all a favor; enough with the puff and dribble - and I’m not bashing this guy - its not his fault. But please give us some substance. And by the way, I’ll put my “mouth where my keypad is”. I’m a 40 year old competive powerlifter with decent drug free stats and I’m not a newbie. Let ME test drive the product for free and subsidize my blood work and I’ll give you an article with the hardcore truth…numbers, etc. Now that would be useful; I won’t dare suggest the product doesn’t work, but if it does indeed work, wouldn’t you want to provide a bit more tangible and objective evidence.
I won’t belabor it, but the whole darn article was about “feeling” this or that. C’mon guys, I’ve grown to expect more from this organization/company. Consider my offer.
