Default Crossfit.com admins refer links posted at IGx...

To gay porn sites.

Classy!

Just go to any XF link on the couch thread and see for yourself. Currently referring to Boundgods.com, a gay S&M site. Previously it was to meatspin.com

No. To be honest, this is probably like gas thrown on a fire. On a scale of 1 to 10 for nastiness, I'm about a 3. The folks at 7+ are probably going to go apeshit about this.

Sounds like a backfire to me. Good thing the actual quotes are posted so often, so they are easily found by decent Google-fu.

Ok....that is funny on some level...the war on links. Although pissing off people at IGX is not the smartest idea.

Wow. CF admins have decided that instead of 'open source' and intelligent debate and conversation, they'll route links through outside forums for discussion to porn sites instead of their threads. Like one can't still go on the forum to lurk, copy and paste.

4th grade problem resolution at its best.

Like someone on IGX said, a childish, petty reaction like a link redirect to a porn site is not the MO of a professional corporation. It would be like an athlete or celebrity publicly attacking every disparaging blog post or tabloid story about them. Just fans the flames and makes you look bad.

You can pretty much consider anything on IGx not safe for work.

Did anyone else notice the similarities between the scenes pictured on "Boundgods" and some of the shirtless pics featured on the XF mainpage?

I sorta got a chuckle out of it at first. But then all day today I couldn't get that damn song out of my head "You spin me right round, baby right round. Like a record, baby right round round round. You spin me right round, baby right round. Like a record, baby right round round round. You spin me right round, baby right round. Like a record, baby right round round round ...." Please make it stop make it stop!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Ganine. I had my speaker turned off on my computer and didn't hear the music or anything else. Now I have that song stuck in my head.

the more I think about this whole thing the more I can't believe I actually spent so much time invovled with CF... I wish I hadn't spent the money on a cert.
