How much should I squat?

I'm 5'11" about 136 lbs right now, and was told (somewhat rudely) that squatting 135 lbs with a goal of hypertrophy was pathetic and that something must be wrong with me for only being able to lift such a small amount of weight. Granted, I used to squat about 160 lbs in a comparable workout, but I...
