It has been a while since I have last posted, as most of the posts that I’ve read lately have not sparked a tremendous emotional reaction. This is different, and I have a proposition that is do-able, and should elicit a decent effect if we can band together on this.
[Note: I am making this a separate post so as not to hijack the initial thread.]
All we need is a little bit of money (can be done), a few guys that are good with programming (I know they are here), some dedication (hello–we’re T-Men), and a lot of voices. We should start an independent website whose sole purpose is to combat the ridiculous allegations and attempts to red-tape the supplement market. We don’t need anything as sophisticated as T-Nation–it wouldn’t be affordable. We just need a solid web site that serves as a voice for those that wish to combat this epidemic ignorance. Sure, letters to your state reps are good, but a collaborative effort with a unified voice would be more effective. I say we start this as an online petition. First, we get T-Men and T-Women onboard. Then, we can recruit from MFW, other supplement websites, and other online forums. Hell, I know I could recruit 100 people in my sleep, and those are just people that I know in real life. Then, we’ll just need a few donations to keep this thing rolling.
If anyone is else thinks this is a good idea, and if we can generate a solid foundation for this, I’ll pledge the first $50.
