Our rules, be sure to read them. If you agree with them you'll find Raw-Iron.com a welcoming home. If not this isn't the place for you. We are a small, focused specialty shop and in that we do not cater to all tastes.

RAW-IRON  GYM RULES (Code of Conduct):

1. Mutual Respect never  goes out of style, your fellow members are your  "Brothers in Iron". They are the ones that will rush to your aide when the bar is stuck on your chest.  Treat them as you wish to be treated, the old "Golden Rule" still applies.

2.  "Only gentlemen do not curse" a motto form our collective childhoods. Do not use profanities ! We have ladies on board, mind your manners .
Old fashioned sure, but so are we.

3. This is not the place for personal attacks against fellow members  and will not be tolerated, you have a gripe... take it outside and let us go about the business at hand.

4.  Gossip or the spreading of unfounded rumors have no bed to lie in on this forum.

5.  Steroids!  We are all adults, we know how much a part drugs have played in all sports and frankly we don't care, it's not why we are here.  We also have all been around long enough to see that every steroid topic posted will always spiral downward into a bottomless abyss .
You want to discuss the topic go elsewhere, we'd rather discuss what your first experience with Hoffman's Protein from the Sea was like...or maybe not.

6. This is the internet and posts will not always reflect your intent, use the smileys where appropriate to enhance your message.   A good natured rib without a    could easily be mistaken for a personal attack. The internet amplifies emotions, keep yours in check.

7. You have a bug in your nether regions against another member...be a man and PM message them. Don't try and make the forums a source for a stump speech . Be courteous of each other's privacy and do not abuse the contact privileges.

8. Religion and politics, as with steroids are a slippery slope , let's keep them out of our discussions. After all what do they have to do with Golden Age Bodybuilding?  Absolutely nothing. Get the drift?

9. We are not an all encompassing site, our time frame is very specific. That's makes us a small niche' inside of a smaller niche'.  We focus on the 1960's, 70's and fade into the 80's. Before 1960 we welcome with open arms and relish anyone who can contribute in that area. After 1991....forget it ! We have no interest at all. There are plenty of forums available for that discussion. We are a specialty restaurant so don't order what's not on the menu.

10. We operate under the Joe Gold principle of the above gym rules, drop the weight and you're out the door. RIP Joe!

11. Rack the dumbbells, no one is here to pick up after you.  

12. Enjoy yourself, this site was created to recapture that spirit of camaraderie and youthful awe that we so fondly remember.  The days of cold steel and RAW-IRON!
