I wanted to revisit the board rules and reiterate the importance of following them when posting. We've all gotten a little too relaxed in our postings, including myself. Please take a moment to review them and remember them when posting. This is going to be especially difficult and important in the lab testing section. I think this section is extremely important, and we need to do everything to keep this section going. It is OK to discuss labs, but not sources here in this section.



1. No advertiser bashing or flaming allowed at any time.

2. No lab results posted without a copy of the labs and a current picture of the product.

3. If your results are sub standard respectfully contact the advertiser FIRST before posting.

4. No trolling, flaming or insults.

The following board rules also apply to this section.


All AAS information on this site is for entertainment and educational purposes only!

IronMagazine has no direct affiliation with ANY board sponsors; they simply purchase advertising space here. If you have questions go to their site and ask them directly.

Do not send a PM to me or any mods/admin asking about any board sponsors, we will not respond. We don't know anything about their businesses.

*No discussion of payments or payment methods on the open forum.

*No discussion of sending locations or receiving locations on the open forum.

*No discussion of customs or seizures on the open forum.

*No discussion of dates, transit times, or anything else that could be considered sensitive.

*No discussion of ordering or receiving AAS in the countries where it’s illegal to do so.

*No discussion of mail or mail couriers.

*You may respectfully address issues however sponsor bashing is not permitted at any time.

Lastly, it is your responsibility to check the laws that govern your country, state, or province in regards to items offered by some companies and sponsors that you may read about on this site. We are not liable or responsible for any purchases that you make with a sponsor.

yes, labs are gear pics are OK, just no mention of sources. most of us can figure out where the gear came from, and if you can't, you haven't put in enough time here.

Reading these rules makes me feel terrible. I have broken several of them often. I was asked to put up TD posts with pics as feedback for the sponsor, I had NO idea it was wrong to do so. I do apologize . I remember in this section if a product was tested to be bunk we ALL wanted to know the source so we could avoid it. Was that wrong? Hell i am nervious I may have said something wrong here now. If I was part of the problem I sincerly am sorry it was in ingnorance, I really thought I was within the rules. I don't even see how posting pics of gear and lab is not in violation of the 3rd rule from the bottom , by posting such info are you not admitting that you ordered? I am not trying to be a smart ass I just don't know what I am allowed to say now.

Don't worry about it, we were all too loose in our postings.
It's ok to mention labs, just not sources.

This is ALL too true. I am guilty of this myself. It is always good to revisit the rules.

3. If your results are sub standard respectfully contact the advertiser FIRST before posting.
The rules are the rules, and I intend to follow them, but what is the purpose of this one? If a protocol is followed, and the results come up underdosed or bunk, the person then contacts the sponsor, but deprives the other members here of this information?

Bunk or underdosed or properly dosed test and ai (especially ai!!!!) is why people are reading here.

This section is the most valuable section ever added to this web site, but Rule 3 would seem to undermine its value to the visitors here.

I have no intention of violating the rules - I am just curious why this one was added and how it helps this section instead of hurts this section.

This rule allows the sponsor to correct the problem. We aren't asking guys to not post the results if the problem is corrected, it just gives the sponsor a chance to make it right. By far, most sponsors want to put out good products and not scam people. But, every good sponsor that has been around long enough will have some issues, whether it be shipping or dosing problems. How they respond to issues and how they fix them is what matters though.

I disagree. A sponsor "might" correct the problem but in the meantime people will be still purchasing bunk gear.

I wrote the rule months ago so guys could report how the advertiser handled the problem. For example say you get labs on some HGH and it comes back bunk. That same day contact the advertiser and see what he says. Within 24 hours you could still post your results and the advertisers response. I wasn't implying anyone wait days or weeks to report the response. I just think its appropriate to contact the advertiser first and directly not have them stumble across the thread days later.

Anyway, in a few weeks we are going to probably have some loosening up around here so hang tight brother.

I have to agreed with u on this, this rule protect more manufacturer/source than the user who will buy again bunk or under-dosed gear and personally i dont see the point to post a lab test if they are reviseed by the source

Some labs don't want pics of their products posted so we shouldn't even bother posting labwork for their products?

If they're gear is bunk, I don't care what they want or don't want. People need to know.

If you follow protocol have legit lab works there is nothing wrong with posting. Has Heavy stated let sponsor know so he is not blind sided. If it is bad it is bad.
