Go back and read the last sentence in the OP's original post. A senior member of BF has omitted this last sentence while quoting to make his point. The OP asked if there is any medical benefit to using an HRM and the answer is to seek advice from his doctors.
Apparently someone has twisted this around to say I have targeted all people of upper age brackets and you have taken hook line sinker when I have said no such thing. Go back and you will see my response is very black and white to what the OP was asking and not what someone else is trying to get you to believe. As a matter of fact it is saying exactly what post number 17 is saying.
As for evidence of not being upfront about health conditions, the OP's second post in this thread pretty much supports this so I don't know what your point is except to jump on the bandwagon to attack something someone else incorrectly accused me of writing.
Note that thread title is "HRM and Age"
However, I do see your point about the word "medical" in the OPs first post... so mentioning a doctor does make a bit more sense. As to your assertion that people in this forum are likely to not reveal medical conditions... well the OP's second post does not reveal any secretly held medical problems and, at any rate, it came after you said that so it couldn't have influenced what you said. I'll leave it at that and move on.
