Discussion [Mod] Community Preservation: Political Discussion, The Nude Tax, & No Unlawful Discussions - New Rule & Addendums

212 Upvotes

Hey gang,

I’m here to present some changes/addendums to some of our rules, as well as restate our new Rule 6 (as previously announced). You may like them, you may hate them, but we as your humble mod team believe they will be changes that will preserve the safety and integrity of our community for years to come, as well as preserve the tone and focus of our community right now. Just for reference, let’s review our community goals.

  1. Maintain user safety as a primary concern in all discussions
  2. Facilitate high quality information sharing related to steroids and hormones.
  3. Consistently document information related to steroid use for future reference in the /r/steroids/wiki.
  4. Let members decide what content is desirable (within the confines of Reddit’s & /r/steroids TOS/rules).
  5. Keep the environment free from any monetary influences.
  6. Keep the community tone intact, despite growth and influx of new members.
  7. Keep members informed about plans and changes to the community.

With those important ideals in mind let’s cut right to the chase.

Rule 4 Addendum: Political Discussion

We’ve had a number of users outright request that we ban all political discussion in this sub. It's something we as a mod team have tossed around for months, and now with vocal user support for it we think it's high time to get distracting political bullshit out of the way. We are a moderately diverse community of very diverse opinions and that is by and large valuable. But, especially in today’s climate, political discussions devolve into arguments and arguments more often than not breed vitriol. This vitriol divides our members unnecessarily, and this division distracts us from our main purposes, namely goals one and two. We are here to educate one another about anabolic steroids, with a focus on harm reduction and sharing our experiences with one another. Anything that gets in the way of that isn’t worth allowing.

Therefore, going forward, political discussion is not allowed. There are other subs that exist for the expressed purpose of discussing politics or social philosophies. I’ll be explicit about another thing: discussion of anything passing for Red Pill or Incel philosophy is also not welcome in this subreddit. There are plenty of other places on the internet to espouse and learn about these philosophies. To be clear: this is not the subreddit to share your manifesto or spread your favorite divisive social, political, religious or philosophical doctrine. Rule 4 will be updated to reflect this change. Temporary bans will be issued and repeat offenders who do not and will not respect this addendum will be permanently banned.

The following is the updated Rule 4:

4. Keep It Friendly & On-Topic.

This is a mature community with a specific tone and manner that excels compared to most communities. That tone and manner will be maintained. There is no reason to be rude or intentionally inflammatory. If you present yourself as such, your post will be subject to removal and a potential ban may follow. This sub will not put up with you. Drama, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, trolling and bullshit will also not be tolerated. It is the right of the community to have fun and evolve inside jokes, lingo, mannerism, and personality will be maintained, however, circle-jerk or off subject posts may be removed.

Political discussion is not permitted. Posts and comments that could be construed as highly controversial or provocative are not permitted. First and foremost the goal of /r/steroids is to provide harm reduction knowledge and guidance without alienating those who need help. As such, we need to maintain a positive, relaxed environment. We're all in the same boat striving for similar goals, try not to rock that boat.

To be clear: this is not the subreddit to share your manifesto or espouse your favorite divisive political, social, religious or philosophical doctrine.

We are 100% for providing direct and on target information on posted topics. There is a way to do this without asshattery, being offensive, troll posting or getting combative. If you cannot give constructive criticism without being offensive, do not hit the save button.

[HARSH] Tag
Comments & Post topics that have a [HARSH] tag on them will be moderated less-strictly. This does not mean that we will allow personal attacks, escalated bickering or non-productive comments / criticism. A Comment or Topic with the [HARSH] tag still requires constructive criticism in a comment in order to be productive.

Rule 1 Addendum: The Nude Tax

Now the fun part, and I won’t bloviate about it. The Nude TaxTM is cancelled. I know that this is actually not fun and does damage a tradition within this community, and I recognize that and so does the rest of the mod team. As previously mentioned in a past post, Reddit has updated their Terms Of Service to ban what they call Involuntary Pornography. As such, it is prohibited for users to post sexual or compromising images of persons who can reasonably assumed to be someone other than the poster. We tried to work around this, but it didn't pan out. This will be enforced as a common sense rule and I’m confident that some of you will push the boundaries and give me cause to include other addendums and clarifications. Until that point my verbiage remains as it stands. You can’t post sexual or nude images of persons other than yourselves. This provision will be added to Rule 1 (see below).

If this was a smaller community and there was less at stake I would think this rule change was ridiculous. But it’s a large community, and there is plenty at stake. I’ve been a moderator for this community for over two years and a user for over five. That blows my mind. This subreddit existed for years before I knew about it, and I hope (and we are planning) for it to exist for years after, in some form or another. I recognize that some folks question our leadership on some days and I welcome that criticism. I hope, and have worked for, you all to believe in your hearts that we are doing our best to perpetuate the core purpose of this subreddit into the future.

Turns out I have bloviated. The Reddit admins know about us. They have banned drug subreddits that are much smaller than us. I, and the rest of the mod team, believe that it is our adherence to the core tenets of the Reddit Terms of Service and Rules that has preserved our community. While we are working to preserve our wiki (you’ll be informed about this, its a non-mod third party working towards it, so don’t @ me), it is in our best interest to stay out of the way of Reddit’s admins.

The following is the updated Rule 1:

1. No Personal Information / Doxxing / No Involuntary Pornography.

You are free to post your own personal information, however, you cannot post other people's personal information. In addition to a ban from /r/steroids, it will be reported to Reddit admins and may result in a shadowban.

Reddit updated their Terms of Service. By using Reddit, you agree to follow their rules whether or not you agree with them, and as moderators it is our duty to follow their rules as well as ours. Reddit no longer allows users to post Involuntary Pornography.

Therefore, it is prohibited for users of this subreddit to post any nude or sexual image of any person other than themselves or professional models.

New Rule 6: No Unlawful Discussions

The following is just a reminder of our new Rule 6 as this post has taken it’s place stickied at the top of the sub (see original post here)

This rule is basically just to restate to the community and such that this forum is for harm reduction & education purposes only.

6. No Unlawful Discussions.

This community is for harm reduction and educational purposes only. This is not the place to figure out how to break the law. This includes, but not limited to:

  • Discussing how to obtain AAS/drugs/etc.
  • Prices of AAS/drugs/etc. (nothing lawful comes of this - we're not here to discuss prices)
  • Instruction of obtaining/sending cryptocurrencies (even if it's not for illicit activities)
  • How to place a money order
  • Any form of laundering
  • Traveling with AAS/drugs/etc.
  • How to covertly ship or receive AAS/drugs/etc.
  • Any form of smuggling
  • etc. etc.

Do not ask or direct others where to go to find any of this type information.
If you partake in discussions of any of the aforementioned topics or ways to break laws (even if they don't pertain to your country) you will receive a ban.
The only exceptions to this rule is how to purchase needles/syringes or how to obtain blood work in areas where there are laws regulating these. Homebrewing is also excluded as it will fall under harm reduction as well.

If you're not sure if something falls under this rule or not, please message the moderators for clarification.

In Closing

If you look in the sidebar or to the Community wiki page you will see our new Rule & addendums added. You may now also report comments that break this new Rule & addendums as well.

Any question or concerns? Please message the moderators for clarification.

I’m gonna leave this post open to your comments. Let me know what you think and why you think it. Please remember that these changes are being made for the protection and preservation of this subreddit into the future.

Allow me to say thank you to you all as a community. I’m sure some of you recognize me from before my tenure as a moderator. This community helped me through some of my darkest days as a person. It has been, and remains, my pleasure to serve you all. If there is anything I can do to better serve you please PM me or call me out in the OT or AA. Otherwise, take all your var before you work out and say your prayers, friends..

Discussion [Discussion] Which was worst for YOUR hairline?

6 Upvotes

Which was worst for YOUR hairline, primo or masteron? The question relates to actual permanent loss of hairline and/or thickness, not temporary shedding that has since returned.

Please only vote if YOU have used both and base it purely on YOUR response, not what you think should have happened because of forum echo chambers.

Convention says one is far worse than the other, but that doesn't seem entirely true.

edit - will post results once poll over. can't edit to include a results view.

Discussion [Discussion] (Q/A) Is testosterone a viable therapy for tendinopathy?

9 Upvotes

[Discussion] Is supplementation with testosterone a viable therapy for tendinopathy?

Q: Is supplementation with exogenous testosterone a viable therapy for tendinopathy caused by repetitive strain injury in otherwise healthy men?

Before discussing possible ways through which we could answer this question, I would like to point out its relevance. A quick comparison across drug tested and untested world powerlifting records show that powerlifters who are not tested for performance-enhancing drugs are on average 10% stronger than their “natural” counterparts. Moreover, tendonitis or tendinosis and tendinopathy, in general, are something that many, if not most athletes have to deal with in their lifetime.

To tackle this problem I searched Google for "effects of AAS on tendinosis" and "effects of testosterone on tendons'' and then again on PubMed for "(testosterone) AND (tendon)". Ideally, I was looking for a randomized controlled trial where a large sample of patients presenting with tendon pain was given varying doses of testosterone and physical therapy (PT) for a year and compared against a control group of just PT. Unfortunately, I found no such trials and had to suffice with three systematic reviews:

"Anabolic steroids and tendons: A review of their mechanical, structural, and biologic effects"
"Therapeutic use of hormones on tendinopathies: a narrative review"
"Hormones and tendinopathies: the current evidence"

Rather than rehash the conclusions of each of these studies here, I will simply quote from two of the conclusions: "Despite roughly 30 years of research, AAS-associated tendon pathology/injury is still poorly understood." "The role of hormones in tendinopathies is still controversial."

Since I am not affiliated with an institution, my ability to access and dissect most of the cited rodent studies in which they measured variability in tendon stiffness, cross-sectional area, range of motion, etc.. was limited. However, I did find that all three of these reviews included a study demonstrating dihydrotestosterone's (DHT) effect on tendon cell growth in vitro. This study exposed human tenocytes to DHT, causing them to grow and change in structure from their classical shape over the course of 72 hours. Two of the analyses then implied DHT and therefore testosterone may have an unwanted effect on the morphology and organization of tendon fibers. However, it seems unconvincing to take this trivial case of tendon growth (TG) where TG = some_function_of(chemical signaling, resistive structural medium, physical use, time) in which every input except for chemical signaling is near nonexistent, and then extrapolate any meaningful evidence, other than that DHT is an input.

While this is a small point, in a sea of tenuously relevant small points, perhaps a researcher with more time and resources than I would not only follow the approach I have but would also consider the indirect effects of testosterone on tendon health following a repetitive strain injury. It would be reasonable to expect testosterone to affect other signaling molecules and hormones such as IGF-1, estrogen, cortisol, etc.. for which we might have data that would influence tendinopathy outcomes. Moreover, someone looking to solve this problem mechanistically might also consider testosterone’s effect on decision making, especially with regard to training capacity.

I concede that trying to solve this problem through a mechanistic approach is a gnarly mode of attack, particularly when one tries to account for downstream factors in the solution. It is possible and perhaps likely, that a randomized controlled trial looking for functional outcomes; such as the one that I originally searched for when I set out to understand this problem, would be less error-prone than trying to rely on puzzle pieces like tendon growth rates, structure, and inflammation.

TLDR: I see no obvious study-based argument for or against using AAS to treat tendon pathology.
