I wanted to offer some feedback from the ‘other’ side. I, admittedly, am a complete and total noob on this subject but am very eager to learn. I feel that my experience in training is up there, nutrition is growing every day, but never had a need to know about this kind of thing until I made the decision to do so this week.
Clearly, there is PLENTY to learn on this forum if you just read up a bit and I definitely did read quite a bit (as well as on other forums). The problem is that, no matter how much you read, a few of us will have that one specific requirement or question that doesn’t seem to be found in the forums. I’m a computer consultant and defintely very adept at finding what I need using Google.
In my particular case I was looking for a completely oral stack. Obviously, most of the stacks discussed in these forums are injects only so that leaves only a few decent threads to read. Plus, each time one person says something is good another jumps in to say that it’s shit. I basically read many threads in several different forums and decided to join this one as I found it to be one of the more knowledgeable ones.
So, when I did have a question I created a thread about it hoping to see many different perspectives from people who know what they’re talking about to ultimately be able to make an educated and wise decision.
I admit, there are plenty of noobs here who haven’t done an ounce of reading and just want the answer handed to them on a silver platter. Others who simply post, “Where can I buy steroids?” But, there are others, like me, who have a faint understanding of the etiquette here, ask reasonably intelligent questions, have an eagerness to learn and grow by obtaining feedback from other’s responses. You all started somewhere.
I agree some of the noobs’ threads make you want to drive over to their place and slap them but it’s the guys like me who will learn and grow and eventually become (hopefully) a contributing member of the forum.
Point is, cut some of us a break and it just might benefit you in the long run.
Just my 2 cents
