There you go again. Read before posting. Actually, in your case, read carefully before posting.

Athletes are still responsible for what they ingest, but the circumstances can differ. Certain banned substances---like albuterol---are legal to use under a certain daily dosage limit. Would you ban someone for life if they test at a miniscule level over that limit? In that case, you'd likely get disqualified from the event, but not even suspended.

I signed in just to include this part, to the above post, when professional athletes test positive and do other things (like creating and maintaining a
PED<s> operation, threaten other professional athletes and recruiting other professional and non-professional athletes to the same PED<s> operation- NOT ALL ACCUSED TO HAVE BEEN DONE BY LANCE ARMSTRONG, BUT ALSO BY A ROD, THEY ARE IN THE SAME CATEGORY FOR ME). Some of those things are a lot worse than just one-time testing positive. If a professional athlete(s) do both or do more than two of them, then I assume you would agree they should face more than just one-time testing positive. That is of course if all of it can be proved; I remember that I was one of very few I knew who was on Lance Armstrong's side right up until he admitted to wrong doing, on the TV show. If Lance Armstrong admits to doing more than three-things wrong (like 4-positive tests or combination) then he should be banned and stripped, forever.

I try really hard to read GreatRedFont's posts, but they are just too... red.

It's not the red that hurts, it's the content ... or am I making a mistake in assuming they're supposed to make sense.

Is the text really red? Or is it some kind of illusion that is brought on by reading the text?
