Cafepharma: the good, the bad, and the ugly

A lot of people want to know what I think about CafePharma.  Here goes:  I think that it’s a great source of relevant headlines for those of us in medical and healthcare sales, pharmaceutical sales, laboratory sales, clinical diagnostics sales, DNA sales, medical supplies sales, medical equipment sales, imaging sales, and pathology sales.  However, beware of the chat room.  There can be a lot of negative information from people who have their own specific axe to grind.  No company is as bad as they are sometimes made out to be, and we should all keep that in mind.  What do you think?
