I've been on this board on and off since it was first created, and there's been a lot of shit go on. You are not the first, or the last person to come to this board and try to shit on it. You really aren't even a good one, you are just persistent.
Zlamous came on this board when it was an atheistic circlejerk. He came here as a stubborn christian adamant that evolution was wrong and that the world was 6000 years old. He came with extensive knowledge in what he was debating. He didn't quote verses from his bible and just repeated the same shit over and over. He actually created discussions, multiple paged discussions, and pissed off a WHOLE lot of people doing it. Zlamous didn't come here to "cleanse" the board, but he succeeded in making a LOT of people butthurt while bringing more attention to this board.
You have done the exact opposite, you are predictable, you do not spawn interesting conversation, and you have made interest in this board go to an all time low by being a general pest. You post the same shit over and over, and stifle anything interesting that is posted. You didn't "ruin" the board, someday you'll be gone too, just like any other pest, and things will change again.

Being around others who are stronger than you isn't negative reinforcement. In general, you can get better at certain things by surrounding yourself with people who are good at those things. The kid would still be around the stronger kids if he was a rack or two over from the group he was in, but at the same time nobody would be slowed down if his group mates were close to his level.
I know you said you thrive that way, but like I said, I believe that it works for less people than it works for. Even if I go back to my high school football experiences, there were some coaches who would pump you up or encourage you to keep trying if you failed, and there were others who simply tried to make you feel like utter shit because you weren't an NFL quality player.
Also, I believe that negative reinforcement works well when used sparingly when combined with the positive. Many people will plateau in one way or another without a little kick in the ass every once in a while, but you don't have to do that by treating somebody like shit. If a coach builds a bond with each of his players, the hope should be that he can let it be known when he feels some aren't performing to his standards without making them feel worthless.
The way I've always seen it is that I would rather work to keep somebody I have a good relationship with from saying that I'm slacking in performance than do so for somebody who tells me that I'm worth less than the dirt we walk on. I always just assumed that the people who respond similarly to different types of reinforcement felt the same way.

I wasn't saying that it was, I must have wrote it confusingly, I was just making a secondary point. But you make a good point.
But I agree with pretty much everything you said. Even I don't think I could go on with negative reinforcement 24/7, it's always nice to hear people compliment you or show that they think you are doing well. And I don't think many people can handle much, if any, negative reinforcement because most people just struggle finding any confidence to walk into a weight room anyways.
Although I agree that a good combination of both depending on the person is the best way about it.
