We've said we will always allow drug discussions and even speculation.
That's an extremely bad policy, which leads to character assassinations about EVERYONE.
"Assassinate my favorite runner huh, well then I'll assassinate yours."
No one is except from such treatment, and there is absolutely no good that comes from it.
Plus it leads to really bad outcomes, tainted testing, people's lives ruined, even death, and yet still it continues.
When we were in college/whatnot too many people in the upper echelons of the sport turned a blind eye to doping. We are not going to let it happen again.
With doping there is not a presumption of innocence in how athletes are treated. Without notice athletes are forced to pee in front of another person.
Lance Armstrong went after those who accused him of doping. We used to get the nastiest emails from people for allowing Lance Armstrong speculation. Should we not have allowed those threads?
People said I was doping when I ran. I viewed it as the ultimate compliment.
