  1. Hey, what happened to the 85 posts that were here earlier today? Why were they removed?
  2. Are you kidding me? I believe the God Futzy was a 5, I was a 5-6, so were Jotronic, Rugger, Dtrojans, Cam, Gambo, etc.
  3. Pat, Robert, and all: I am sorry to say that I have substantial concerns about the direction in which these forums are headed. I am not here to bash or instigate, but to candidly lend my thoughts regarding the site's underpinnings. I found this website while on the verge of potential disaster. Unbiased posts and pictures directed me to a first rate doctor and a fine hair transplant. I was easily able to distinguish those who were promoting or advertising from the rest, and evaluate their expressions accordingly. Frankly, I find self-promotion and puffery unprofessional and it turns me off. Those reps who crossed the line from fair and balanced posting to blatant, unsubstantiated self-aggrandizement only hurt their own doctor's cause in my eyes. The very power of this website to educate and guide the public lies in its unrestricted, unbiased nature. Any and every doctor or patient on the planet Earth can post pictures and experiences here. If some choose not to, that is their own prerogative. However, the marketplace of ideas must remain free from artificial adjustments. I was troubled when the no-outside-links rule went into effect, but am far more disturbed by new positions such as<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>. . . many of these top notch physicians have not gotten the attention they deserve on this forum. Instead clinics that have hired patients to work full time advocating online for them have been getting the lion's share of attention. This is simply not fair to them or the visitors on this site. . . . Robert will not only be moderating this forum and the new live chat but helping these gems in the rough physicians to get more presence on this forum. and <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>. . . the Coalition physicians are the reason the site is here. . . . several highly skilled physicians are not getting recognition on the forums and to alleviate that, I'd like to get them more involved and showcase their work. Call it what you will, but the day this site backs, endorses, assists, exposes, pushes, "helps" or "showcases" doctors is the very day that it loses its credibility. Had I, at the time I discovered this site, seen it as part of a "coalition" "helping" certain paying member doctors and "showcasing" their work I'd have moved on in three minutes or less. What a shame.
  4. Have you considered a piece? Since your hairline is intact, you might be able to get a very fine "system" to wear during the next few months. You'd clip it on during the day and remove it when not in public. It can be cut very thin so that it doesn't look like a wig, just some additional hair. If done properly it might be a good way to go. If I go back for additional hair on the top, behind my HT toward the crown, I might do this myself. Hell, it's only temporary and no one will be able to tell. Pieces look bad when they are wigs, i.e., cover the whole head, particularly the hairline. But when used in small areas (Ted Danson in Cheers), they can be quite effective, particularly for the short term. In fact, lots of chemo patients take this route.
  5. I'm not offended at all by what you do, which is legitimate marketing. I do, however, disagree with your statement that "I don't do marketing or try to attract people by any means like others do. My work is just to post results." This is patently false. Therefore, when people properly ask you to identify yourself or state other marketing-oriented information, it is rather shifty to hide behind the "all I do is post pictures" line.
  6. Of course you don't do marketing, and you post nothing but results. http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=5696015661&f=1466060861&m=886108472&r=886108472#886108472 http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=5696015661&f=1466060861&m=688109962&r=688109962#688109962 http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=5696015661&f=1466060861&m=1376018985&r=1376018985#1376018985 http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=5696015661&f=1466060861&m=4316054785&r=4316054785#4316054785 http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=5696015661&f=1466060861&m=9186000385&r=9186000385#9186000385
  7. I dunnow, but I hear that Jotronic does the lateral s<span class="ev_code_RED">p</span>lit quite often!
  8. Honestly, there's a big white square in the middle of it! If that's a HT, it looks superb, thought the image is not too sharp.
  9. Has anyone mentioned that you are a total idiot, Eastcoast? Just in case they forgot to remind you in the last 24 hours, I wanted to make sure you were duly aware.
  10. How would you compare the qualities of the two? How do they differ?
  11. This dude named Jotronic had a similar situation. See how he turned out. Read his story here.
  12. It's amazing that the Nation's most respected newspaper would publish such poorly researched material.
  13. Good luck and congrats, Socialdrinker. BTW, I say you will change from Socialdrinker to SocialAnimal!
