Amy Shipley's article = done
Well, the like the dirty rat she is (we already expected this) Shipley has finished her little attempt at 15 minutes of fame.
Her "piece" is far from the truth and she did exactly what we knew she would do in regards to bending the truth and spinning lies.

"One contained a steroid that came to the attention of authorities just two years ago but, until now, was thought to be in only limited circulation"I wonder which one she is talking about? I am going to guess ErgoMax since If I remember correctly, I remember reading about it being essentialy DMT (desoxymethyltestosterone). If I remember correctly.

Well as long as we support the supplement companies and they have the funds to continue, hopefully this statement will hold true... And Congress can't just say "No supplements of any kind can be sold anymore", and that's basically what it will take I think. If they DO go that route, I'll be finding another country in which to reside... To hell with my freedoms being opressed by a bunch of rich lardasses who support burger king and mcdonald's til the death...Originally Posted by Article

The ignorance that an action of that magnitude would imply is unacceptable in my eyes, from a body governing a country. Maybe I shouldn't say ignorance, but rather greediness? Or perhaps fear / stupidity? I don't know, but it makes no sense why people can support big tobacco, alcohol, and McDonald's when the #1 cause of death of teenagers is automobile crashes, usually alcohol related, and the top killer of middle - older age people is heart disease / lung cancer, caused greatly by fast food (bad diets) and cigarettes... Yet there have been NO deaths linked to AAS, and supplements aren't even in the same sport as steroids, much less ballpark. Just thinking about the way this country works is enough to make me completely enraged sometimes...Originally Posted by CDB

True, but one common underlying trend I've noticed is that Congress usually doesn't crack down until one of the following happens due to the use of these products:Originally Posted by 200wannabe
-Some famous athlete is busted for use of one of the products
Basically anything that would warrant negative media attention. It has taken that for them to REALLY crack down, up to this point, and I'm hoping this continues. If it doesn't, we'll all be on test / dbol and the black market will be making the money, I really hope Amy Shipley realizes that moot point...
Also, kudos to Author L. Rea for, what I thought was GREAT P.R.:
And as long as our chemists have the means to research, I'm going to keep a positive outlook and not let this try to piss me off to much, because we all know what a bitch stress isOriginally Posted by Article

There may be some truth to this, I can see how some would make that assumption, but aren't there some products under development now that are non-methylated and less toxic than the current ones we have out? I've been going natural (protein only) since july after my first SD cycle so I'm not up on what all supps are out, so correct me if I'm wrong...Originally Posted by dark_star

Nice one-sided reporting, bitch!
I think the time is definitely up for the products mentioned. If anyone has seen recent Legal Gear ads you would no time is just about up anyways. Those donkies have a new ad in MD that reads "Legal Gear Releases its New Legal Prohormones"
They are as much an enemy to the industry as the ignorant, biased woman who wrote that story.
BTW, that open letter was posted at non other than AM.

It's not just the manufacturers that are hosing it up with their ads.
There's a Nutrition City (local chain) store outside of a large mall a few miles from me that has a huge sign up announcing that they have "legal steroids" for sale.
Talk about stupidity.

Grammar was terrible for someone wanting their 15 minutes as a "Breaking News" reporter. Instances of misused quotations, and lines like "Prostanozoland Ergomax LMG," (meant to be "Prostanozol and Ergomax LMG"). And she does this for a living. Looks like she's not too much better at research.
Well Ms. Shipley, I hope you're proud.

That women is a complete dip****. First of all when did it become the governments job to stop everyone from using a substance just because the 1% that are in sports might use it. What the **** is up with our country and making the majority the minority. We get rules slapped on us to stop the very few out there from breaking the rules. Our country is ****ed up. And whenever i try to explain to others about this, they just look at me. Today its something I love, tomorrow its something the rest love. Eventually everyone will understand; I wonder what will happen when we realize we are trying to be controlled in every way. (at least Ill be able to get a double-cheeseburger when that day comes)
10-18-2005, 01:07 PM
It seems like these companies wont mention any names cough LEGAL GEAR, GASPARI !!! have not learned, you cannot advertise in such a reckless manner, in no way am i pointing fingers, but truthfully things like that are in open view are open for discussion. Just as it seems like i can get some serious size from legal supps, they are going to be yanked AGAIN !!! why because PROSTEROIDS are back !!! Damn this pisses me off, and i cannot help but wonder what America has against us "users" who want to look better, and use the means to get the look we want.

i've been wanting to use this for a while:
seriously, she should've responded to ALR's open letter in the ALRI forum. She didn't want to be proved wrong about responsible usage by responsible people.
More people have died as a result of OD'ing on tylenol, but should that be made illegal?
No matter where you go there are going to be people that use products responsibly and people that don't.
10-18-2005, 02:17 PM
Yet another good point... I think the good people of AM.com should replace all the douchebags in Congress and then take over the job of running the country... It would without a doubt be a more fair, free, and enjoyable place to live anyway... Maybe not the richest in terms of money, but anyone who values that the most has insecurity issues that go much deeper into psychology than I am able to accurately express...Originally Posted by cable626

How is her article one sided and far from the truth? I fail to see where she demonizes steroids and it's users. The improper labeling section is correct as is practically ever other part of her article. She merely reported the current state of the market and how loopholes are being used.
10-18-2005, 02:41 PM
It's one sided because she's just blasting something that is manufactured for the use of responsible adults. Why doesn't she ****ing blast alcohol, it kills thousands more than steroids / prohormones do, I can GUARANTEE that... No one said she's 'far from the truth' as far as the loopholing goes, the issue is why even report on this **** anyway? She's stuck her nose somewhere that her non-associates-degree-having-ass doesn't belong if you ask me. It's like the little ****er in kindergarten that ratted you out for chewing gum in class, that led to the teacher dragging you out in the hall by the ear only to bust your ass in front of everyone.

Also, if Prostanozol is a steroid (I know technically it is), then they might as well call patty cakes steroids too, because patty cakes would do more for me than ****ing prostanozol did...

Simple reason she went after supps; it's a niche market, very little money being spent to lobby(pay off) gov officials, no organized voice being heard from the companies, and sports stars getting busted for steroids (riding the wave).Originally Posted by Magickk
Alcohol and tobacco kill more each year than steroid/ph/etc. ever will, BUT they have $$$$ so no one's going to ban the use of them.

Maybe companies like Legal Gear who advertise blatantly like that have a point. Every political movement that gets attention and makes some serious change starts out with an in-your-face attitude. Maybe they should be doing that, and we should be more open about it instead of trying to skulk around like criminals, enjoying what we have until it gets taken away and then just biching about it. I'm starting to like the open attitude. It's nice to say to someone, "Yes, these are steroids. Yes, I've used them. And, since I'm not a monster, not in ill health and not adversely affecting other people or selling to kids, why don't you just mind your own ****ing business?"
Nothing pisses busy bodies off more than direct challenges to their apparent God given right to run everyone else's life. And when pissed, usually it becomes clear what complete wastes of life they are. Maybe to get our point of view across we should start being more open and blatant about who we are and what we do. If more people realized that their neighbor is doing roids and isn't running around killing people, they'd get a little more clued in to the reality of the situation.

This blows, ALRI has pulled out on its 4-hd compound. Anabolic Extreme has stated it is some what unncertain about the future of its compounds and that they were contacted and informed that this will be making the News tonight.

The irony here is that on the side, there was a collagen lip injection ad.
Once again, another one sided alarmist article. Even better is that next year is elections and you know some ******* in Congress will champion the banning of all supplements to scrounge for a few more votes. It also might be the ticket McCain might use to enter into the 2008 Presidential primaries as well.
CDB is spot on as usual. There's no collective voice, except for the manufacturers, which are slandered as bad as Hitler.

The only problem is they could probably trace who we are and put our careers in jeopardy just for revealing their ignorance to them.
I loathe the media
10-18-2005, 05:04 PM
Her article is one sided because she specifically states that these compounds are made for athletes to pass drug tests. That is a blatant lie! These compounds are made because of people like us who want to get past that plateau and reach the next level. I would gamble that 99% of the users here are not pro athletes or semi-pro for that matter. Nobody here is taking these compounds to get the edge in sports!Originally Posted by ersatz
Everyone knows why she "reported the current state of the market and loopholes". She did this to "educate" the public on these da-a-a-a-a-ngerous compounds (read as mis-inform). She only reported the side of the story that she wanted to, in order to spin negativity on the legal stuff and feed on the publics fear of AAS. Government misinformation has created a monster larger than anything AAS could make!
10-18-2005, 05:12 PM
Here's the idea. A group of like-minded people, in this case us, should move to a small state where our collective voice would be heard the loudest. There, we would not only have a say in the political process of our state, we would also have the best gyms in the country! Add that to the lower taxes because the state would be paying less for health care, and this would be heaven! Only problem is that convenience stores, fast food chains, and smoke shops would probably go bankrupt. Still, the market for whole foods and supps/vitamins would skyrocket, which would help the local economy. Now if only we could find a state.....Originally Posted by Magickk
