So, this is a little venting by me. I've been active on this board since the beginning of this site in 2002. Sure my post count is fairly low, with 90% of my posts taking place between 2002-2004, but whey get involved in conversations these days when all you're going to get is a second opinion contradicting yours?? So, I just roam around and stay quiet.
Anyway, when I first became a member, everyone was so helpful and there were no smart ass remarks. There were rules to an extent, but not like "No post about PH's if you're under 21." I understand that the site doesn't promote use under 21, but why does it matter if people under the age of 21 ask or talk about it? Yes, a lot of underage people aren't knowledgable and causing the FDA to ban more and more substances (i.e. the CBS broadcast re: ph tren), but don't you think if they ask about it and become smarter, thats better, because they are going to do it whether you like it or not. Also, the drinking age is under 21. If you're going to enforce a rule and play police, better start editing posts of underage people saying they are drinking at parties! Same concept.
Next point....talking about prices of steroids. I understand that there should be no source posting and I believe should be remain that way. But whats wrong with talking about market prices?? What's the difference about talking about steroid prices and drug prices?? Marijuana....$400/oz., Cocaine...$100/gram....
Next point....I had a post edited yesterday re: posting a great deal on the net for USP Labs Prime. I understand that you have "Nutraplanet" sponsoring this board. According to the rules, nutraplanet is the only retailing company you can post prices on, because they seem to be the only retailer sponsoring this board. Well, what about all the manufacture sponsors on this site?? USP Labs I believe is a pretty well known sponsor on this site and with you editing my post regarding PRIME, you just kicked them in the ass on sales. Everyone on this board rants about how expensive PRIME is and if it were a little cheaper they'd buy some. Well I found a helluva deal yesterday and shared it with the members only to get it taken down and penalized by the mods. And I was not promoting for another company, I just felt this board "used" to be a brotherhood so I thought i'd share with everyone. So in the end...you just did Nutraplanet a favor by shutting down their competition, but at the same time negated some USP Labs sales....good job! And still no one who's willing to fork out $50/bottle but would for $35/bottle will buy from nutraplanet (no offense nutraplanet, you are a great outlet and I have my fair share of purchases). So in the end, lose-lose situation.
Next point....brotherhood. What happen to this general feeling? Seems to me all these old-school members moved on to other boards (i.e. BigPeteFox, Sage, MatthewD...hell majority of the active mods weren't here to know these guys---the only recognizable name that was very active in the beginning that I continue to see is Dreamweaver, however, I'm sure a missed quite a few).
Last point...what can anabolicminds.com provide that other boards cant? It used to be knowledge because a lot of things were open to talk about. We used to talk about converting fina pellets to tren, syno to test, where to buy it from, where to buy peptides, where to buy research chems. These are all legal to purchase people!!! You think the gov't doesn't know these products can be converted or used for consumption? Patrick Arnold works for the gov't and he's got lights years on all of us!
Withthatsaid...this board is evolving. It has turned from a very informative site to a marketing site. Basically learning about new PH's to be released and finding out about sales from board sponsors. This is the major reason why the educated one's seem to be moving on...
Okay, my vent is over. Just giving my opinion on how this site has changed.
