17 U.S. Code § 107 - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes [all mirrored content falls under this clause, any ads present are mirrored from the original site, mirrored content earns me no revenue whatsoever];
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work [this is a unique resource for the mentally ill, and preservation of it can be argued to be incredibly important];
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. [absolutely none whatsoever, as the original work no longer exists anywhere else (outside of whatever bits and pieces archive.org managed to capture) - the original site was intermittantly completely unavailable for a extended period of time before its SSL certificate expired (and was never renewed), and eventually the site went offline for good, then finally the DNS records were removed at some point prior to May 2018, so at this point it is well beyond the 'dead and rotting' stage]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

This domain is not controlled by Jerod Poore, and I will NOT continue redirecting traffic from this domain to crazymeds.us [as I formerly did] while Jerod continues with his immature temper tantrum over adblock or continues to fail to maintain his site, fucking over his entire community and countless visitors in the process. [belated clarification: with specific regards to the adblock drama I was referring to Poore at one point replacing his entire site with a single page complaining about the amount of revenue lost to users with ad blocking active, which is something that I took extreme exception to because this affected ALL visitors to the site regardless of if or if not they were actually using ad blocking]
This mirror is unfortunately incomplete (and very slightly outdated), as /CrazyTalk/ was not included when I scraped the site (it was far too large to scrape given the site's extremely poor performance, my wish to avoid worsening the poor performance further, and other factors). If you're looking for a replacement forum, I suggest visiting https://www.crazyboards.org/forums/. There are issues with many of the mirrored pages, I am working on identifying and fixing them, but I do not have the time to address every single issue at this moment (although by now the majority of these issues have been resolved). Dynamic content is obviously completely broken (this is beyond my control), and the loss of /CrazyTalk/ is quite bad given how much good user-generated info was on there, but you have Jerod to "thank" for that. Maybe I'll bring it back online at some point, but it wouldn't be the same as before. For now, I suggest visiting CrazyBoards instead.
Note (Oct 9 2018): Infrequent additional updates regarding the status of this site will be posted on https://info.crazymeds.net

Know your sources! Don't trust any random website. Just because it's on the Internet doesn't automatically make it true!

It's important for you to know if a website is trustworthy or not. The Internet is full of anonymous fearmongers who have nothing better to do than make you distrust a medication or therapy that could very well work for you just because it didn't work for them.  Health information sites are accredited by the good people at [[http://www.hon.ch/|Health On the Net]]. To be accredited a site has to live up to their [[http://www.hon.ch/Conduct.html|Code of Conduct]]. If a site bears the seal of HON accreditation, then you can trust the information presented there.  The information may be out of date or incorrect, we've got plenty of that here, but at least it's an honest effort and probably no more wrong than most doctors.[[<<]]

Even if a site doesn't bother with HON accreditation, or is about something else entirely - although there are plenty of organizations that certify accuracy for all sorts of things - there are a few things you can check to know if a website is as good, if not better, than the latest self-help book[^##book^].  This is what you should ask, along with our answers:
[^##book You're on your own in determining if the information in a self-help book is any good or not.  I've yet to find a study on the matter.  There are plenty out there on bibliotherapy - using self-help books instead of, or along with traditional psychotherapy - but nothing about the accuracy of information regarding medication, or even how good diet books are when it comes to simple things like the caloric content of various foods.^]
