How come when shit hits the fan you people come to a forum for "help"? Why don't you address this with people who can actually help, you know family, or those guys in black suits?

You should also check if there are any class-action suits against GoodLife right now, they're actually pretty well-known for ripping off customers, overcharging, and creating huge problems when people try to cancel their memberships.

Thankyou for making one of the only helpful comments of the day, wow this comunity has gone downhill hard sense 02-05...
thanks for the responses other guys who are not totaly illiterate and bothered to read, and not troll,

I talked to a lawyer for free today, He took a copy of the conversation i had with GL and the contract, He said i would be best off taking them to small claims to have the contract abolished, If they find that the contract is legal, then the most i can recover is 5k as that is the provincial maximum,

I am sereously bummed right now, But chances are that the contract is not legaly binding.

The lawyer is also going to cost me about 12% of the contract if i win the case... every one got their hands in my pockets and they are pulling out lint.

and to every one bitching about age.... you do realize you must be 18 or older to enter in a contract right? and 19 to own a credit card.... And i own a fucking $4000 synth that you can see on my profile, you guys iz dumb or trollin, successfull troll iz sucess.

In that same vein, if you're as old as you say you are (and with apparent proof to back it up), what, exactly, would be the point in lying about your age on THIS site in the first place? Doing so merely invited certain people to fuck with you.

There is plenty of proof in this post,

I simply don't like my age being a factor in conversations i have with people, So i used an OBVIOUSLY fake age of 13 after I singed up as people where making comments about my maturity levle for my much older then average age for this site, I have been coming here from late 99, of course I " outgrew" the average user, that should not bar me from having fun on the site and posting about silly things. having a low age brings less attention in the average immature thread then being an old fart making cock jokes,

Middle-aged man with horrendous spelling errors conned out of $13,000 by fitness nut; chooses to seek legal advice from a forum where he pretends to be a 14 year old moron.

Omg you don't exist because you have no age! NO WAY!
See where i am going with this?

And I clearly stated in the op that I was more or less digging for others who share a similar experience and to vent my frustration,

dude, just either let this go and say you're trying to troll, or admit you're 30 and your mother lent you money to do whatever it takes for you to lose enough weight to be able to maneuver your body to find another place to live.

The question of me attempting to troll has been thoroughly debunked, that tells me that you are both illiterate and too lazy to get the whole story before commenting,

It is apparent that you sir, are the one who is partaking in the art of trolling, and you have been successful,

You really don't get it, do you.

We're offering you a way to back out of this ridicule. By saying "Oh, I was just trolling, I'm 14 years old", you will be allowed to walk away without being called a complete moron (until the next thread you make).

Instead, you're sitting there trying to convince us that you spent enough time eating junk food, under-exercising, buying $4,000 synthesizers, and getting talked into signing contracts without reading them that you've finally been hoodwinked out of $13,000 for assaulting someone to terminate the contract. And to top it all off, you fundamentally misunderstand the importance of sharing your age on an anonymous website, if you share any age, in favor of obfuscating that number to manipulate the people who might do a little research.

I have no need to back out of this as there is no shame to be had here. I am simply warning people of shady business practice and sharing my story.

It was much worse when I had my real age in my account, this community can be so immature, There was even a thread made about my age made by a user in general back in January that was deleted,

And I think I did not go into enough detail in how the assault took place, Removing a hand from myself and doing the same thing back to the manager is all that happned. I was attempting to show him how he was making me feel by putting his hands on me and he has a Higher then thou attitude that pissed him off when he is treated the same way he treats others.

That is by far the dumbest thing i have ever read, are you capable of constructing a proper comment that has any thing to do with what you are commenting on?

By far the dumbest thing I'VE read is someone asking an internet forum for legal advice.

Why do you give a fuck if people know your real age? It's not like you are telling them your entire name and address.

Especially asking Newgrounds for legal advice.

Although crazier shit has happened than the BBS actually being useful.

And OP's logic is clearly flawless. Posting his real age can really lead to horrifying consequences, like someone crying "rape" through text or a massive attempt to dox him.

Shows how little you know SoK. What kind of name is 'SoK' anyway? If you take OPs age * pi / sum(OPs_IP) you get OPs social security number.
