Why MESO is tough on sources

ASF removed Praetorian from their site. Just goes to show any UGL can fall apart over night. They were a popular source on ASF and charged premium pricing too. That’s nauseating because there wasn’t much testing performed. They encouraged bloods but that’s so bullshit and subjective. And it looks like they gave away gear to the dudes that agreed to log and run bloods. Free gear to select “vets” - that never works well does it?

As if anyone needs further encouragement to test products. This is why we DEMAND that the sources here test their own shit first. “Oh, but of course that will test well...” it doesn’t always. And when a source tests their products, they establish a baseline that better match up when a member submits random samples. See how that works? We’re not just taking the sources word for it, it gets validated over time.

MESO also heavily discourages free samples and we call out shills. Those kind of source tactics heavily bias reviews and make it impossible to get the facts. There’s no grey area on that and shilly fucking guys get called out all the time.

This way of holding sources accountable is helping the entire community to get legitimate products. Praetorian is no longer around to pull their scams. The dinosaur way of doing shit is coming to an end and results in good products for everyone. Testing is the most important thing we can do as customers.

What happened to Custom? I’m sure he will just become a rep for another source there.
 
My favourite part of the Praetorian testing thread was when someone claimed that the bad test (multiple compounds, none of them the right one) was due to raws getting mixed up.

At least one of the samples had EQ in it, which is LIQUID in raw form. If the concept of solid vs. liquid confuses you, you probably shouldn't be brewing gear.

Everybody involved is at fault: the lab either fucked up beyond belief (or, more likely scammed people) and the resellers and reps didn't do their due diligence and test the product with any consistency. There's no "sorry guys, I didn't know."

You didn't know because you chose not to know.

Meh. It was typical "leftover brew."
I think the name is self explanatory.

I've seen it over and over over the years.

I hate those, because it's just so confusing and taking so much more time to analyze and make the reports with the clusterfuck of random compounds.

Like the bagged cigarettes that you buy off of the reserve: they're filled with all of the shit that they sweep off of the floor.

The best part was the nandrolone. I hope that nobody who took their "test" has to get PED tested for the next year and a half. They're going to piss pretty spicy if they do.

Oh yea. Custom is looking out for Custom no doubt. Though I think he was a little closer to Praetorian than just being a rep.
Well fellas I decided to join the darkside. Lol.. I didn't even realize I had joined over here until now. Anyways praet definitely got me. Out about 1,200 between gear and the testing. As of yesterday before they were removed from forum custom said he was working on things. But what is a little fishy to me is he's telling me to email "him" all info to the praet order email. Is he actually praet? Any thoughts? I'm just rambling
