Playing games

On November 23, 2010, in General Nutrition, Vitamins, by Andrea

So I’m not the only one BariatricEating is moderating.

After my blog post yesterday suggesting people ask for the science behind Journey, people started questioning the missing posts and the questionable science.

Now?  Their facebook page is completely blank.

Rather than answering the requests for more information and about the censoring of previous requests made in the past, BE has simply wiped the slate completely clean and disabled posting ability.

What exactly do they have to hide?

Before:

And after the page had been “sanitized” -

So really – what exactly does Susan Maria have to hide with these games she’s playing?  And why, exactly, does she feel comfortable playing these games with peoples’ health?

Enough is enough.

Bariatric companies must learn that we will not stand idly by and accept the word of the company that something is “good enough.”  We have brains, and we know how to use them.

Welcome to the new generation of bariatrics.  Get used to it.

    YOU ROCK. SO glad you captured the screen shots before they disappeared, just as we predicted. But goodness. I thought only some posts would disappear, not the entire wall. Clearly they have much to hide or they just do not have answers.

    Welcome to the Thunderdome, Susan! Guess it didn’t work out so well for ya, now did it?

    What I just can’t get over is someone who has actually RIDICULED taking a single vitamin and thinking that everything will be all right is now PROMOTING THE SAME DAMN THING! I mean, the hell? THIS. IS DANGEROUS.

    But of course, I’m preaching to the choir here, nicht vahr?

  3. preach it! acting holier than thou and just being “further out” no longer means that we as Bariatric patients accept what is told to us as the gospel. our community is becoming more educated and supportive of each other – evading questions is not a smart move, BE. Maria’s team needs to learn the difference between marketing and informing concerned consumers.

    I wouldn’t have come to expect anything less…

    I find all of this unfortunate and slightly ridiculous. Not you, by the way, but Journey’s refusal to just post the info. To just delete the comments makes them look 1.) bad, 2.) suspicious and 3.) defensive. Just give a complete answer. To refer someone to the company website that has all the answers is pointless, because it still doesn’t answer what has been asked. All of this back and forth crap could have been avoided with some solid answers. Done. Period. Instead we have one camp that wants answers because our bodies are at stake and we have another camp that blindly follows along because the people backing the product are well known and therefore would not sell something that could be suspect. Banging my head against my desk is pointless…
