  1. I think this will be my last post on this forum -- have scrambled my password and e-mail to make sure I'm not tempted to come back. Really can't deal with this place anymore and will be going the way of Spex and Mickey. Good luck everyone.
  2. I am so sick of this fucking bullshit virus. It's ruined everything. I don't even know who to be mad at anymore. Just tired. What a miracle it would be if plaquenil was a cure. My hunch is it won't do anything for most, but will cause prolonged QT syndrome and sudden cardiac death in a minority of those who take it, and then these deaths will be mislabeled as heart attacks instead of as a medication effect. But that's speculation. I'm not going to pretend speculation is fact. That's for politicians, political pundits and armchair warriors.
  3. I really wish I could take you to my work and see what is actually happening without the media filters. It's not good.
  4. Yes, literally nothing to see. Dude, no one's reading your posts anymore. If you were on Reddit, everything you wrote would be down voted off the screen.
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6-7oYSjeb4 Go figure that Texas cases are increasing. That's what you get when you have too many Kramers and not enough Jerries and Elaines.
  6. You know nothing about me or what privileges I have or haven't had. That's the problem with this discussion. All these assumptions. I'm not on the street begging, but you're not in an ICU with flooded lungs. Don't underestimate your own lack of perspective. I'm as sick of this shit as much as everyone else here but I am also seeing people dying. There is no easy way out. Incidentally, I do agree with you that Yang was the best of the crop. I think most reasonable people do, but again what does this have to do with anything. I don't know what you're referring to as far as the state of
  7. I'm not going to go through old posts, but it seems at times that you expressed things that I perceived differently. Perhaps I am mistaken. There is community on Reddit within the smaller subreddits, but certainly you are right. It's the largest forum in the English speaking world so you have a constant flood of new ideas and it is difficult to establish accountability. But that doesn't mean you can't learn from their strategy. Another thought is to encourage the non-surgical side of the site to take market share from the more medical hair loss sites out there. Perhaps you could also coll
  8. Melvin, I appreciate your point and I certainly agree that you are entitled to your opinion. However, I would ask that you weigh this against your responsibility to maintain the forum as a neutral ground to encourage hair loss sufferers to visit, and (just as importantly) encourage sponsors to advertise here. If I were in the shoes of a physician considering promoting their practice and I saw the administrator of a site make posts that favored one procedure when I felt they were even, I might be discouraged to advertise there as it would be perceived as a hostile market. This is just my perspe
  9. Cosmo: If I need help with any intubations I'll send you a DM!
  10. Cosmo: We are going to value different things. But you have a tendency to call "fake news" any information that doesn't agree with your preconceptions of the world. Despite your previously stating how much you hated big orange, like him you particularly take offense to things when they cause financial harm. This is not unreasonable, but you take it too far. -Theories that China created the virus and is sending spies around the world are xenophobic and bigoted in their intent. While everyone is angry at China right now, to deny facts that you don't agree with, and create conspiracy theorie
  11. Melvin, it sucks that you're hurting but I have to point out two things -A large part of the reason the forum is losing traffic is because the software is old, buggy with a clunky interface. This discourages new users, particularly younger ones. Especially as current 20-somethings start balding, the loss of traffic will be devastating. The quarantine may be a good time to consider investing in the site as far as a software upgrade. -The one thing Bill did really well was to stay non-partisan in discussions. You have a well-intentioned tendency to take sides, whether it's in threads a
  12. Taking a break from taking care of COVID patients to go back through this thread and reading for some amusement. Dear lord CosmoKramer is a moron. Complete utter moron. r/agedlikecheese
  13. Well, it provides an obvious cosmetic benefit on the back of your head. Very true. Also, even if we restrict our searches to patient submitted cases, our minds tend to focus on the extreme positive and extreme negative results unless we are very careful because those are the most interesting.
  14. I have had extensive conversations with three of the names you have mentioned, and across the board they indicated to me exact opposite of what you stated: strip is unequivocally superior for yield. Not for me in particular, but in general. So I'm not sure where you're coming from with that statement. Perhaps they changed what they said to you because your stance on FUE is so strong and they knew your surgical history, but I was very careful to come in neutral when I spoke with them. Or perhaps their opinions changed over time--my conversations were recent. One of us has fake news on this one.
