It is really hard herding the cats! And the pay sucks.
Yes, it is repetitive.
There have been other outbursts of gratitude, found one: https://forums.t-nation.com/t/tribute-to-ksman/93050/28
Times have changed. Used to do the who education thing in each thread and often in PMs [rip]. But got burned and started writing stickies that I could point guys too. They used to be visible pinned to the top of the forum, but can't do that now, too untidy, and I need to post pointers to the stickies for every new guy who shows up. Could this forum be better for me and new guys? -yes
It would be great if some others here could drop the same boiler plate pointers to the stickies so the forum would be more self sustaining. It should not be all about me.
I do drop threads when they get to a certain level where I think that I have done my thing. I can't follow some the threads that get very long.
If you really want to get depressed, look at what goes on at the Pharma forum. There is this bro-science problem.
The guys in the T-replacement forum are mostly very intelligent and wanting to learn and find something better than "The Doctor Experience". Reminds me of the TV program "The Girl Friend Experience" where the background story is men paying a lot of money to get fucked.
