I don't mind all the odd-ball banter that goes on here, but one thing that's offensive to me is the personal attacks. No need to get personal!
From an early age, I've battled with my weight. Since primary school actually. Some say it was the food. My mom always ensured she gave us a hearty meal each night, with sandwiches and snacks for lunch. Some say it's glandular, my doctor wasn't sure. I also feel it's part genetics.
Either way, if I'm a few kgs over, then that's really my business and nobody else's. I have a healthy appetite, sure, but no when it's time to cut back and work on the pack. The six pack I mean, in case you missed it.
I can take a joke with the best of them, but these constant, and dare I say, childish personal insults about my weight, are becoming tired.
I see the same trolls over and over, insulting, mocking, ridiculing, and they think they're being funny. Some poor guy here get's nailed for having a eye (or two) that seem to go in the same direction. Now that's probably a birth defect or something, but it's completely unprofessional and just damn rude to be mocking someone's squinting.
Please people, let's not let our forums descend into immature madness. Let's keep some level of maturity and responsibility.
No need to get personal!
