He spent 4 points specifically talking about full ROM and two more randomly discussing aspects related to squat ROM. I fail to see how his rant wasn't about squat ROM.
Can you explain what he was ranting about?
AFAIK This is one of the cornerstones of his gimmick along with really stupid diet advice.

I admire him (and Deeply Unhappy too) for it really. Should have been a lawyer or something.
Why would I go to three years of grad school, pay 200k (assuming I'm not too dumb to get in) to get a career where I work for someone else for 3-4x the hours for 1/3-1/4th the pay?
I do some dumb ****. But nothing that stupid.

At the same time, his writing style when he's just writing stuff is uniquely compelling in a sort of casually uncaring (but clearly caring) sort of way.
If DU is anything like he is online IRL, then I really doubt lawyering is a solid possibility. Think of how many times he'd be banned from the courtroom, talking with his clients, entering the office.
Does using facts upset you or asking people why they believe certain things?
So many people are upset by tone and would actually read posts if they started with "I respectfully disagree with your position but..."
NB: It was pointed out that I assume other people are as intelligent and as knowledgeable as me. I will strive to stop assuming this and be more clear in what I consider incorrect. (Perhaps I will use a combination of bolding for things that aren't horrid, underlines for things that are nonsense, and italics for things that are incorrect.)
