Default Anthony Colpo and criticism of Eades and Taubes

Does anyone know much about Anthony Colpo and his background and the kind of knowledge he has? I am curious because he has written a book and runs a Low Carb Forum in which he has criticised Eades and Taubes.

Eades (see http://www.lowcarbmuscle.com/forums/...ead.php?t=1541)
Taubes (see http://www.lowcarbmuscle.com/forums/...ead.php?t=1589)

Ahhh....Internet Fitness Celebrity Wars....got to love them! Ha....

I am sure Anthony is a smart guy. Don't really care about the other aspect of the drama of who is right and wrong....because it's a waste of time. Especially since he "publicly" attacks 2 people who are ALSO pro-low carb/high protein on his low carb muscle board?? Ummmm....aren't you guys on the same side? oh wait...I do see the evil plan unfold...

1) Find 2 people very well known with a blog of active readers who are interested in low carb (qualified audience)

2) Establish a quarrel with such well know person on a very intelligent level to hopefully carry over to other forums for more qualified leads (while also qualifying yourself as an "expert" on the subject matter.)

3) In such public discourse, make sure to reference your EBOOK as you now have expanded your qualified audience and given yourself an expert credibility rating with those leads...and the money rolls in.

Again he probably is a smart guy...and I applaud him for his marketing strategy...I mean we all have to make a living somehow and he was very creative in how he went about it. Bravo my friend...bravo! I probably would have done the same!

MOD hit the nail on the head. The unfortunate fact is once people see through the BS and have a shadow of a doubt that someone is faking authenthicity, there reputation goes down the tube. Good chance is marketing ploy may backfire on him.

Go ahead Mike, rip into my site. I can take some criticism (like to believe I have thick skin!). You get too harsh, I'll send a few bloods after you lo.

Steve, your website features too few shots of females. Preferably hot and nekkid. See T-Nation for an idea of what I'm talking about.

The one thing I really loved in Colpo's attack on Eades was when Eades didn't bother to justify it with a response and AC went on with "See...I'm right! I'm right! You're an F'n chump!" It reminds me of an 8th grade argument. AC is a smart dude, but needs to be a bit less vitriolic.

Until such time as Eades indicates that he is prepared to discuss this issue in an intelligent manner, rather than throwing weaselish insults at me, this thread is closed.
I've never heard of this guy before but I skimmed the 2 posts above it and seems like a gigantic case of pot calling the kettle black.

Maybe he has great information, maybe it is awesome and life changing but with a demeanor like what he has presented....

I thought the same thing. Although his content his valid, his style sucks. Really turned me off.
