Does anyone know who we e-mail if we find errors on the site?

I was reading the lats section:
http://www.exrx.net/Lists/ExList/BackWt ... chor125439

Some of the weighted pull up moves are listed under 'cable exercises' by mistake.

Pullup/Chinup wrote:
Pull-up New!
Parallel Grip Pull-up Modified?
Chinup Modified!
Rear Pull-up New!


It was a bit confusing because I wanted to read about pulldowns and was all 'what're these doing here'?

The last 3 are fine but the first just shows using a dumbbell between the legs to do weighted pullup so it's not a cable move.

There should be a feedback form somewhere.

I think we've mentioned a few times, maybe a few dozen times, that none of the forum members have anything to do with the main site. We've told you many times that you should contact James himself about these matters. I think it's a little odd that you keep asking us. Actually I think it's pretty odd that you obsess over the details on the site, but if you have nothing else to do with your time, that's up to you.

I'm new at this. I mean, I know how to ban him, but I'll get ironman's agreement before I do it.

Doc,

You should hold yourself to higher standards.
A troll like me might rename this thread.

this is not a good look for you.

I approve of the use of the most excellent word "picayune"

Ah, good choices. I tried to add them, but discovered that at present the title is only 1 character shy of the limit.

Well, there is a higher authority than me--ironman. For the moment I won't start banning people on my own for being punctilious pedantic and irritating. Or even picayune. If he agrees that the punctiliousness, pedanticism and picayuneishness is of sufficient scope as to warrant banning, I'd love to be the one to push the button.

I didn't so much rename the thread as I split it off of the Pullup Training thread. I felt it was a total hijack.

It's really cool. I can take selected posts out of a thread and turn them into a separate thread, or divide a thread at some point, I can delete selected posts, I can even edit other people's posts.

my mistake on the "renaming vs splitting" but still my point stands.
A lot of posters are irritating. On one had you'll help obvious fibbers who post things like "If I do 500 pushups, will my arms explode." Tyciol is annoying to you but he's not more deserving of banning than me or Immortal. He's quirky as heck.

He can find every inconsistancy on the site but he can't find the "feedback" button right at the top of the page. Still, he shouldn't be banned for that.
