    I was referring to Glens original post. A mistake on his part, however he is right about your comments, they are not needed.

    Welcome back, and how about providing some substance other than fodder.

    Let me try and shed some light here.

    This board has been growing, and due to this, there has been an influx of "newbies". Probably wandering over here from bb.com and such boards. With that, there are those who just ignore the Stickies, and ask questions that could be easily researched. I know the intent of this board was to be for intermediate and/or advanced members, who should already know certain things about AAS's, etc. I guess you could label it as "growing pains". All popular boards go through it.

    The MODS here have been great with allowing the members to let those who "need" to know the rules, to advise them, or give the advice. They do step in when it becomes a problem.

    This is still a great board, with a positive environment, and with great peeps.

    Um hello, just because someone is new to the board, doesn't mean they are new to the game and don't know anything. Open your mind bro....

    I, for example, only post about stuff that I'm comfortable talking about.

    No offense taken here. Ryan and Glen are good dudes, and they were more-than-likely protecting the integrity of the board.

    I understand about someone who has no business giving advice out. Although, if it happens, and it's bad advice, others will usually jump in and set the person straight. Most of them bring what they have been toldon the street, or from some boards that pass bad info around.

    By the way...nice to have you back and posting again.

    Shake....damn good to see a member that is as long in the tooth as I am

    Trust me, I feel you pain. Its a subject with which I have expressed concern myself. But trust me, all of those whom have preceeded me in posting on this thread are extremely knowledegable in all subjects aas related. The mods as well do a great job keeping this board the best of its kind on the net. Please stick around and become part of the solution to the problem to which you have expressed concern.

    Shake I think I know where you're coming from, at least in my case it's seeing all these people who "newbies" asking for superdrol sources, BUT the mods do a hell of a job of closing their threads and banning whoever they have to ban. I was here when the focus of the board was transdermal homebrewing and making gear with powdersbut there are a lot of smart people here and some very reputable sponsors that give great service and make great products which is an a luxury you won't find in most places. We even have contests now, AM is making progress and getting better

    I only would take "advice" from a poster that knew what he/she was talking about.

    One problem is due to certain supplement companies. When they marketed M1T and other methyls, they talked nothing about proper PCT. I know the goal for these compaines is to make that almighty dollar. However, I wonder how many hospital/doctor visits their products caused due to improper use. I know it is the consumers responsibility to know what they are taking, and what proper PCT is. But some of these companies were marketing 50mg M1T caps. That is very irresponsible.

    The flood of the legal steroids and other PH's, along with the publicity of certain professional athletes who claim to have taken them, created a larger market, especially for younger people. Thus, has brought more people to these boards who post what they "hear" from the lifting buddies.

    I think the MODS and Vets here at AM do a very good job with curbing this bad advice as quick as it is given. Not many other forums take this approach. That's why the word "RESEARCH", and advice to use the "SEARCH FUNCTION" are seen here so very often. Some newer members take it as a personal attack, not realizing it's for their own good.

    I have begun to practice the rule of "If I have nothing nice to say, say nothing", and I let someone else provide constructive direction or correction. But if I find that someone (anyone) is being mislead in a direction that may harm them, then I will speak up.

    I often find it impossible to tolerate all the incompetence in the world...until I remember that I was once rather incompetent myself. One difference is I tried not to open my mouth and demonstrate it too often.
