just the facts, ma'am

Postby sl » Tue Oct 28, 2003 2:59 pm

After coming across some misconceptions on this board and in some of the reportage we've come across, we decided to post a "Fact From Fiction" piece on the THG mess. If you're all over this story already, you may find it to be a bit dry.

On the other hand, if you have other basic factual questions, we'll certainly consider adding the answers, provided we can discover them, to the article.

Having the facts at hand is important as our sport weathers an ugly episode.

And what makes you dream that anybody will bother to read it? Based on most of the posts in this section, most people are much happier just spreading gossip they've heard rather than being interested in anything as boring as actual FACTS!

The hilarious thing about this is the fact that this is about the most non-factual post over here unless it was done on purpose. This is the 923rd post in this section. "Most" implies a number much greater than half or 462. But let's go with that number. Read the front board and then I challenge you to find that many posts inconsistent with what is in that piece. Please. A lot of the information over here is from articles the links to which have been provided. Go back and read the front piece again(if you bothered to once) and you will find that is where they are getting a lot of their information. Not a lot of people are talking on the record. Granted, there is a bit of confusion about what the punishment is for modafinil offenses and there is now open season on at least one THG positive but please do your count again and come back and pontificate about facts and gossip.
