Lurker? That’s me!
I had let off some lurker steam on some other thread a few days back, but here are some rational thoughts:
I realize that the vets here like yourself, Bonezz(sp?) and whoever else see what you guys do and say on the forums as necessary sometimes, but it can be overboard.
One thing you guys have to realize is that everyone behind the keyboard is some dude lookin to enhance his body, as we all are. Everybody here started in the same spot: not knowing anything about steroids. And while it may more “respectful”, “wise”, “intelligent”, whatever, to read every sticky and to cruise the forums for weeks looking for knowledge before posting (and sometimes it can be different info from different sites anyway), not everybody will do it, or even close to it.
I don’t think it is someone’s place to bash on somebody for being “too small”, “too young” whatever…Refer him to the sticky, or dont even respond if you don’t want to help. No sense in bashing him, he will just go to a less knowledgeable forum and probably be in a worse situation; now how is that helping him? If he had asked you in person through a friend or something, you probably would have been more helpful and less condescending, and if not, I would be willing to bet I can count the number of friends you have on one hand.
We all want the same thing in the end from the use of steroids, respect and admiration.
Just from cruising the forums and trying to learn as much as I can I realize that out of many steroid forums I have been on in the past 2 weeks, this is by far the least friendly…but, the most knowledgeable.
I understand it’s a great place to get critiqued on your cycles, but there WILL be people that post shitty info hoping to get feedback. He has to learn somehow…hell, i wouldn’t know much of what I do if I hadn’t read many threads where guys had been bashed for saying something “stupid” on this forum.
All I’m saying is lighten up a bit…if you really don’t want to help people(and that includes n00bs or “trolls”), then pretend to atleast, or don’t help at all.
Posters’ tendencies I’ve noticed over the past couple of weeks.
Bones- bashes people sometimes…but can be helpful too
rrjc- annoying, just follows the vets…don’t know if what he is saying is true or if he is just looking for attention
cortes- prob same as bones
Wyldflower(sp?)- from what I’ve gathered… what a jackass
DetroitLionsBaby- pretty helpful
BTW- I don’t care if I didn’t spell something correctly or use perfect grammar; its just a damn forum.
