I like to follow this guideline. If you can’t show yourself, you can’t belittle anyone who has shown themselves.
Criticism isn’t necessarily belittling. If some chick comes up to me and asks me how her tits look, is it imperative that I have to have a pair of tits of my own to opine?
I follow this guideline, if you don’t want critiquing, don’t post a pic of yourself asking what people think.
It’s a two way street and then there are some that like to avoid the traffic and hurl rocks from the overpass.
You are missing the point. It’s not about a poster taking criticism, it’s about the wack job critisizers like PGA who can’t provide any proof they can back up their points with experience.
Rockscar you totally understand the point of my thread!
And you totally don’t know when people are joking.
PGA has posted his pictures on this forum as many of us have at one time or another. While I agree that most people shouldn’t be giving advice unless they show they even enter a gym regularly, I think you are missing the point of some “criticism”, especially when aimed at some of these kids who log in for the first time before they ever even get a gym membership asking for us to rate then like this is the “hot or not” discussion forum.
