Ok, how to approach this?
David, I see nothing specific to a snake oil spam or any other thing right now. This compound is fairly common and lots of people claim benefits to it, similar to saw palmetto or OPC. I see no way that the guy is doing any spamming, unless he is a farmer who wishes to boost the basic general grains used in it. I see this no different than the other supplement recommendations we make here.
p-elliot, this poster (heavyz) is not the same one who started the thread (k2) and who did the self exam DRE, He's seperate.
TO ALL: I realize that we are sorta gun shy now from recent abuses to the Forum, but I think we need to dial back the negativity and not be so quick to accuse people in public. If you have doubts or concerns , it would be much better for you to express them in email to the Moderators, rather than publicaly calling people out. Emailing us is much better than us having to publicaly edit you to eliminate unjustified flaming of posters, especially new folks. I think we all need to take a more deliberate approach in carefully evaluating new posters and not being so quick to judge them.
AS F8 says, it's gonna backfire some day, and our rudeness and accusations can run off people who really need us and the info, support and help we can provide. As a matter of record, we have already done that a couple times, so let's err on the side of giving the benefit of doubt to people, ok?
