Not that it makes any difference, but I would like to make sure that you know that I do not at all agree with this, and I am sad to see that you will no longer be a rep. I realize that my opinion is just that, but in this case I feel compelled to stand up and respectfully share that opinion with others.

I don't think you should stop because of one guy, maybe talk to the company and see if anything could be tweaked in your approach or your posts whilst still being your authentic self and go from there, this seems rash to me

Hey, take a break if you need to, but don't stop repping, and don't leave the forum. You are an OG. You have more people that like and support you here, than those that don't.

Dont do it man. As others have said so what if some think you rep too hard. We cant be all things to all people and it was you that got me into Iconic Forulations products and prior to that Invictus/XI-KT. The help you give on here is immense. Just think it over dont pull the pin just yet buddy.

I can guarantee you’ve turned more people ON to Iconic than OFF. I personally tried their products multiple times because of you.

I couldn’t pick any of you guys out of a line up but when I come here for info I lean on people like Zoo, Hyde, Renew, Ripper, Chef, Thor and BigT. I’m sure I’m missing some other guys too.

Not sure what happened with you and IF but they would absolutely be losing a great rep if you leave.

Just my 2 cents.

BigT is a big a reason for Iconics presence on the boards. Many have commented on how much he has helped them and gave them safe and effective options. If someone or people have issue with how and what he posts, that is their issue. BigT always speaks honestly about the products he uses and doesn't just pimp out the brand. He spends plenty of his own money buying products and promotes other brands he uses. If the is an issue with his posting and professionalism, those members can reach out to me or @delsolrob to address.

Also just an FYI, you can always go to a users profile and click “block/ignore”.

This usually works across all social platforms. 🤙🏽

Never seen a problem with your posts bro. I don’t use products iconic sells (as in everything I use is UGL) but your posts always seem to be relevant (I.e you name a product a poster may want to look at by iconic but always seems to be when they’ve already identified the compound as one they are looking at, or another poster has suggested they look at the compound).

I know you have views on other stuff, not saying I even always agree (although I know we do on many thinks) but never seen you post a view in an inappropriate way, we all have views and this forum serves as a great place for debate.

long story short, I like your posts, don’t go anywhere bro

WTF. So some whiney little c**t raises a stink about a rep repping a company who sponsors the free board the little t**t is on? Maybe I am way off but IMHO F**K THAT GUY!

I have never had any issue with any of the reps for Iconic, certainly not bigT, and 99% of the reps on here for all companies are just fine by me. If you want a board with no reps you can start one and fund it yourself as far as I am concerned. SO SICK of people who have NOTHING invested in the FREE SH*T they avail themselves of acting all put out when the world does not fit perfectly in their little minded box.

Why would people complain ? I’ve used your code a few times and it saved me money lol. Bigger things to worry about people 😒. Since we have the same name I guess I’ll take your place and start repping so they can just get mad at me but you’ll still get the credit 🙌

save 20% using code thebigt !!! 😂😂

I know for the majority of people there is fear of what people think of them. But haters are good and you have to keep going. Catch yourself and realize you can keep going or change your course of action. People will spew venom and if this isn’t your path, it’s a good thing to get other peoples opinions. Albeit solicited and unsolicited. If the person is someone who doesn’t matter than ignore it. Change your habit of letting people maneuver you. Cultivate that rationality. Good luck BigT. I’m a long time lurker and I don’t like seeing a veteran(or anyone for that matter) get defeated by humility. One team, one fight.

Agree that you shouldn’t leave, whether you rep for Iconic or not. You’ve spread some other useful information that has helped me personally, such as the use of Voltaren for arthritis. Had no idea that sh!t existed til you mentioned it and it’s been very useful.

Sorry I haven't been able to reply to this sooner!

First, you're as much part of the iconic family as I am! You have been and will always be...you'll probably never fully understand how grateful I am for everything you do.

So, essentially, I don't accept your resignation - you've always been a respected member of our community! Additionally, I don't know the details of what happened, but it doesn't matter...it's impossible to get along with everyone, especially on the internet, and all the time. if someone doesn't want to use our products, that's their loss too...we make some pretty awesome stuff!

The forum needs you, and I need you buddy!

Hey brother. I am newer here and you don’t know me, but the reason I have stayed around is because of the the tremendous amount of help that guys like you and ValiantThor provide day after day, for free. It’s really an incredible service. I never would have known about Iconic if it wasn’t for you. I don’t view what you do as spamming - you are recommending products that you legitimately believe in and spend your own money on. Hope you reconsider.

I don't know any details at all of what anyone has said or what happened, but I hope that you don't stop posting. You're a valuable member of this forum and in some ways, you are part of AM if that makes sense. You've been here for a long time and you sincerely try to help people.

I know that I appreciate you - your intelligence, kindness, and helpfulness. There have rarely ever been threads where we disagreed in and when we did, I always liked and appreciated that we could talk it out in an intelligent and educational manner. No arguing, being rude, just intelligent conversation that hopefully educated and benefitted those reading in the threads, not just at the time, but for years to come when the threads come up in search.

Whether you continue to rep or not, that's ultimately up to and between you and Rob, but I really hope that even if don't continue repping that you'll still post here and will continue to promote Iconic's products, whether as a rep or non-rep. You believe in Iconic's products and there's nothing wrong with you letting people know that.

I'm assuming, and I could be completely wrong, because I don't know anything about what happened or where this came from, but I'm assuming that someone probably said something about you promoting Iconic's products too much?

^^^ Sure you promote Iconic's products, thats your job as a rep. And I commend you on how seriously you take it. You have that old school rep, or I guess I should say old school head rep mentality where you take it seriously and treat promoting the company as if it was your own. That old school head rep mentality is where you promote Iconic products everywhere you see fit, but I don't view that as a bad thing. I view that as you taking your rep position seriously and doing a good job as a rep.

If it bothers some people that you go into too many threads and post promoting Iconic's products, if I'm not mistaken, there is some way that they should be able to automatically ignore or not see posts by you. And I don't mean that in a bad way - if that's what they want to do, that's their right but I would encourage them (if they're reading) to do that rather than try to discourage you from posting.

Going back to what I said about you having that old school rep style, back then, if someone didn't complain about a rep promoting the products too much, it kind of meant they weren't doing their job haha.

Again, I don't know any details at all of what anyone has said or what happened, but I think you do a good job as a rep for Iconic, and that even if you don't officially rep for them anymore, I hope you'll continue to post and promote their product were you see fit. And hell, this is coming from another company owner. So I hope that you take that as the big compliment that it is in that the owner of another company is telling you how good of a job you do as a rep for another company and encouraging you to continue, whether it be in a rep or non-rep capacity.

The Big T is getting some much deserved LOVE
It’s good to see the members support someone who has given so much to the forum. It’s sad that people have to complain about a rep or member for no other reason than to complain. If you don’t like what someone posts as long as it doesn’t go against the forum rules it should not be an issue, just don’t read the posts.

I almost never post, but I seen the thread it was just 2 guys complaining. They should have ignored you if they didn’t like your post, and I hope you consider ignoring them. You seem like a genuine guy in here.

Your posts had a part on selling me on trying iconics products and they worked well. So imo you did your job. I’m sure you sent many others their way too.

Count me as a dem and one who wants T to stay. But I could easily argue T is being the snowflake by allowing himself to be bullied. Just saying.
FWIW - I think that argument is based on facts not entered into evidence. We don't know that anyone was bullied, only that - based on what was written - he apparently believed it might be best for the brand if he stepped down.

I don't agree he should step down.

Unless I am wrong, I think he believes that he is taking one for the team. From all the interaction that I have had with him, he is no snowflake - that I can assure you.

No reason for him to take one for the team. He should stay. He is valued here.

I purposely stay away from politics-based threads here because I overwhelmingly disagree with most of the leanings. That said, I’ve never seen him bring it into a product thread and don’t see the big deal.
