The question of steroids is tough. I don't use (you can tell that by the pic I think
), nor have I any interest to, but on the other hand, the civil libery of someone putting what they like into their own body comes up.
Whether a person uses or not should be up to themselves, but whether we talk about this on the list, I think, should be up to you, I'd say. A lot of the strength field is dominated by drugs (infact I go so far as to say that most of sport is dominated by steroid usage).
Maybe the fact that a person uses shouldn't disqualify them from parcipating in the board, but discussion of cycles, quantites etc should be taken to a more appropriate place
I know we, as moderators, have been talking about what our view should be on this, but really it's you that have to decide what you want from the board & how far you'd want to take any discussions etc (I assume you'd want to know if someone was using, so you could take any training, diet etc & understand that a non-user has different needs).
My vote would be to allow users of steroids onto the board & allow them to say they use (if they wish to), but to keep details off of the board, as I think the majority wouldn't be interested in that kind of thread
That's my take on things, but I'd accept it if people wanted tigher or looser controls, maybe JP or Roch could formulate some form of vote on what everyone wants, with total ban of the mention steroids, at one end, to no controls at the other (& a couple inbetween?).
What does everyone else think
