It's not a matter of anyone distancing ourselves. We're affiliates - CrossFit is in the name, and I'm happy with that. What happens on the main page, in their message board, in here, and on IGX doesn't doesn't change the fact that CrossFit affiliates are largely autonomous and will do whatever they see fit. Their opinion on mainpage programming is almost as inconsequential as those within the message board bubble.
I started the thread with the hope (and thankfully some took it seriously) that instead of a few people whining about the mainsite and vowing to stop it all costs, some intelligent folks with experience in injury prevention would provide some insight to those who might listen - the many affiliates who I'm sure browse these boards.
But thanks for the witty comment Andrew.
