Why the Secrecy with Online Sources?


#1

This is a serious question and I am not asking anyone for anything other than an explanation. I get that no one is going to give bob up at the local gym as a resource. That is common sense but going through this board and others I see a few times ask and get slammed for asking what online sites are best.

So why is it taboo to ask which online resources are best, it seems from what people say everywhere that for every 1 legit site there are 10 scam sites. So why not help others figure out what is legit and what is not. I would buy online if I knew but I wont take that chance. Between the regular net and tor sites its just hard to wade through so you would think that there would be a board that everyone helped each other figure it out.

This is where common sense should be kicking in.

source discussion is not allowed on this board.

if the PM function worked here, I would be more than happy to help you out…

however, it does not…so I wish you good luck.

there are SO MANY boards that allow source discussion, and boards where the sponsors are all legitimate companies you can order from.

10 seconds of googling would reveal all of this.

The reason we don’t talk sources here is Biotest are a legitimate company that can’t be seen to be involved with illegal activities

^yup.

also, you’ll see some message boards with close affiliations to research sites, etc that pimp out lots of products, and their advice is less than logical. EliteFitness is one that comes to mind, as they commonly recommend high dose SARMs in PCT, and amazingly expensive OTC PCT products, that have little/no science to back them…

i will admit that it’s a little frustrating that we can’t be more direct about that stuff here, but at least we don’t have scammers coming in here to sell BS products…

KountKoma - no I think the common sense thing to do is help everyone. thanks to everyone else who gave me some insight. I didn’t realize that about this site and that makes total sense. Appreciate the feedback.

You do need to have common sense, as gear is illegal in many countries even for personal use, and you don’t want to incriminate yourself or a fellow brother. I’m sure law enforcement can read too.
