Well, if you actually want to know…
Now, I don’t know which forums you’re talking
about for sure. I don’t myself have the time
for anything other than the T-mag forum, and
even that can be hard to keep up with sometimes. However, from what other people tell me, I think I know what you mean.
Here’s the deal. There are some groups – fortunately the T-mag forum is not one of them! – where there is very clique-ish and dog-pack-like behavior. It can even
tend to dominate these groups.
And there’s an individual in the supplement industry, accepted as a “head dog” in these cliques, who several years back had discussed with Tim Patterson the idea of Biotest selling his prohormone capsules. He was very enthused, and was very happy with Biotest when it seemed that project was a go. However, there was one problem… the prohormone capsules really did not work well, nowhere near like he represented. So Biotest chose not to carry them.
Instant and very vengeful enemy.
So this individual has constantly attacked
Biotest on every forum he participates in since then.
Also, there was an occurrence where one of our chemists involved in manufacturing called his company seeking technical advice since their 4-AD was clogging up the filters used in Androsol manufacture to a horrendous degree. Our chemist made the mistake of thinking he was just dealing with a reputable chemical supplier or something, rather than with someone who would use confidentially acquired info to rip off a product idea.
So in the context of the conversation on manufacturing, using what should have been privileged information he was receiving as our bulk supplier, this individual learned the formulation and method of Androsol (however, was mistaken as to thinking we would use IPM) and then ripped it off, even down
to the exact dosing. Until then, even as of only a few days before, he’d been planning on releasing a gel product.
Worst of all, when I wrote that this occurred,
having an e-mail from him to prove that he
indeed did receive this information from our
chemist, he publicly asserted that I was a liar
and he “received NO information” from our chemist.
I’m generally a patient person but my patience
does not extend to such individuals. That occurrence pretty much ended my interest in having any relationship with that individual.
So, this individual denounces Biotest and myself on these forums on a more-or-less constant basis. There are many people who
when in the wrong, for example, they have
stolen from you and then you call them on it,
turn on you with hatred. It’s a way of justifying themselves I suppose.
And, given pack-like behavior in these forums,
there are those who
want earn or maintain group approval by showing everyone that they follow the
“party line” on Biotest, established by
this individual. No one else has any actual
reason to be anti-Biotest, that I know of.
It all feeds off of one person ultimately.
Well, it also gets fed by a couple of other
competitors in the supplement industry but
they’re not the main factors by any means
in fueling this.
I hadn’t known about the sig lines including
these anti-Biotest sentiments: that’s pretty ridiculous but I guess fits in perfectly with the overall mentality.
And as you said, the loss is theirs.
As for their liking Finasol, most likely
they do not know that I am the inventor. It
doesn’t fit in with what they want to believe.
Nor, I suppose, does the efficacy of Androsol,
let alone MAG-10.
Just think about how
those compare to the “androstene” and “androdiol” capsules that were touted by that individual before Biotest made prohormones
How often do you think they give Biotest
credit for that? So it’s not just Finasol
that they neglect credit for.
Anyway, more than enough said on that, but
that’s the reason for what you’re asking about. I wouldn’t lose
any sleep over it, nor certainly would I bother
“defending” myself among those individuals.
They’ve chosen what they want to believe.
If their beliefs work well for them, fine, or if they
miss out, that’s just too bad.
