Been reading this site a long time, although not posting much the last several years.
I agree with the general sentiment here that this site has allowed or encouraged an amateurish hatchet job of Rupp. I imagine it's possible that Rupp's a doper, but I give that possibility about the same likelihood as I assign the chance that wejo was doping when he trained for his 28-whatever and then rabbited the Radcliffe WR run. In my brain, every high level athlete is suspect, and I don't let their personality influence that belief. Surely some of them are clean; hopefully many or most. But to me they are suspected dopers until they fail a drug test, at which point they become confirmed dopers. There are no 100% certain clean athletes, just dopers and suspected dopers.
Rupp and Salazar have to take responsibility for a lot of the mocking he's received on here. "Rupp-certified" wasn't invented by posters out of thin air. Similarly, the effeminate hands-on-hip race start pose wasn't photoshopped. Ditto the Bane face masks. The brojos (I can't muster the courage to call them blojos, which might be the best contribution to this thread so far...) fan the flames of vile anonymous internet commentary and have let this devolve into a perpetual LR vs. NOP+Salazar+Rupp slap-fight. That they would be surprised that Rupp isn't keen to take their questions seems, to me, unsurprising.
