It would be useful because when you try to discuss something you end up with post like
"Bro I been on CEE for 2 weeks and the pumps and gains are sick! Up 15lbs already!"
Or when you challenge someones statement and question their thinking, logic or general ability to be objective in a discussion you get
"science isnt everything! I know what I know. Every pro does this and its true. You need 10 meals a deal to stoke metabolism. Its common sense, I dont need to prove it"
With a discussion section founded on objective reasoning and science it eliminates the brolore and challenges members to start questioning and thinking for themselves. More questions like, "Why do you suppose is such a great test booster?" and "What is the proposed MOA?" Instead of the typical type of questions like "which carb gives the best gains. Brown rice or white rice?". And yes while anecdotal evidence does has its place, n=1 experience seems to dominate every thread here. There isnt a good balance between actual evidence and bro i spired "evidence" in my opinion and this is what this proposed section would bring to the table. Simple rules like if you make a statement or are in a debate, try to remain objective and back you post up with the very least some sort of thought process and ideally some form of research. Be respectful and dont be a dik if you have a disagreement. Hostility is not welcome in debates. Too often when you are discussing something against someone and they realize that either they are wrong, dont know what the hell they are saying or you back them into a corner with evidence, they get hostile and resort to "how much can you bench then bro" or "lets see your pic" and other nonsense. A place where this isn't allowed would be amazing! And this does not mean there will not be disagreements among the more science minded members and the same rule will apply to them as well like, yes maurine models suck but for many cases its all we have. Or the in vivo vs in vitro disagreements. Also, no specific product bashing or even discussion for that matter would be helpful. Discuss ingredients and if you so choose you can discuss the interactions between multiple ingrediets. Simple things like this will set the tone for a great forum.
Examples, me and coop briefly discussed via PMs the health implications of TTA and I was tempted to make a thread but I know it will get over run with post like "I lost mad weight on . Its legit!" same goes for berberine. We have had a couple post back in forth in various threads on its potential negative effects and again it gets drowned out by post full anecdotal evidence (mainly n=1) being passed off as empirical evidence. Hell i have a thread on blood sugar lowering adjuvants and it was going good but then turned into "insert company GDA" vs. "insert opposing company GDA". Same goes for a thread I was involved in on the topic of high gi vs low gi carbs and a thread on carbs post workout in general. These types of discussions are in valuable to the community but they consistent get drowned out by bickering, false claims and psuedo-science.
Or in other words, I sign this petition and support coops motion for this forum

I've learnt so much from scientific discussions that take place on AM, there are countless like me that are peeping them from the shadows and benefiting, so in honour of that I e-sign

Agreed would offer another section of this site where people wouldn't have to do huge searches to find a good discussion on the science of things. Without getting shoved way down, I think JudoJosh's blood sugar thread was good but I forget cause it gets lost in the shuffle.Originally Posted by mr.cooper69

It would also be greater opportunity for those of us who don't know as much in the scientific side to pick the brains of you genius'

I would sign, and only one rule needed:
30 day ban for idiots.

Can we also make a rule that it doesn't become a quasi-circle jerk like other 'supplement science' boards? I'd name names, but I am sure I will offend.
