I'm quite doubtful of the credibility of these actuaries who are now giving advice on supplements.
Are you kidding!? We're uniquely qualified!

This site routinely hosts ads from legitimate study-note authors (and similar) about their wares, though. An ordinary post from a known poster or from someone using a real name would get a lot more attention than click-bait.
Well, I did submit a report on it, while all the replies were of the kind suitable for cyberchat. It didn't get moved. I just don't care.

When I took exams I ate four dozen eggs
To help my scores to grow large
Now I'm FCAS I eat five dozen eggs
And my ego's the size of a barge
