What incentive would they have to lie?
Are they sponsored by implant providers?
I'll be disappointed if they are.
I wouldn't think any are consciously lying. I'd also be a bit surprised (maybe not shocked) if anyone was doing it for any sort of financial motive. There will be some who have considerable experience on the subject and who are genuinely trying to help by sharing.
However, I suspect a fair number of the implant members are posting in the other sub-forums, encouraging others to opt for an implant, to validate their own, now irreversible decision, to take the permanent step of an implant. In the non-implant sub-forums, those with ED are looking for information or sharing info on ED with those in the same situation and for solutions less drastic than an implant. It would seem intuitive to visit the Implant sub-forum if you want implant information.
It appears, under the disguise of helping and sharing, some implanted members are encouraging non-implanted members to take that final and permanent step, to justify or validate their own difficult and now irreversible decision to get an implant.
Don't get upset. I'm not bashing implants. I think they are a miracle cure for those that truly need them and are one of the coolest inventions ever. I don't rule one out for my future, but not yet.
Sorry Paul, I know you don't like me shrinking forum members. Go ahead and shrink me now.
