Also, what smet said about the relative privacy of the conversation itself. In any kind of open discussion on FB, there is a huge population of people who don't get it.

For me the best thing about IGx is the ability to have a real conversation. No PC, no fear of insulting someone (they are capable of defending themselves and can insult you back). Not sure if this sort of environment is appealing to the law abiding, non-masochist general population, but I am sure there are a few thousand people who would enjoy being here.

And, of course, pictures of naked women. Not that it is a rarity, but the edgy feeling when opening threads at work makes life more interesting.

Good advice on training is the cherry on top of the above. Not that important.
In my long sojourn among the unwashed masses I have come to the same conclusions as you and Shaf. For all the proliferation of media out there on fitness and sports training, there's really FEWER good places for discussion and exchange of ideas than there was 10 years ago. Facebook, IG, etc. just aren't conducive to meaningful information. People can take their reddiquette and shove it right up their communitarian asses. I hate that safe space shit.

Also, I have to say, your GS over 40 and over 50 sites are incredible resources. Good work.

I finally managed to log in and it only took a few months though I did take breaks every few weeks.

I sort of miss teh boreds. Facebook and Reddit are terrible for extended discussions and for either to work, they would need to be locked down to private groups. Even then, you lose a lot through the lack of anonymity.

Anonymity actually promotes honesty.
