Did someone say Minions?
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
We all need to be able to see that while others may have opinions that differ from our own, they're not necessarily completely bonkers
I think a lot of Brits are probably iodine deficient since we don't have iodinised salt and we don't eat a lot of seafood (despite being an island nation!). Thus the iodine deficiency may contribute to minor health ailments. That said the people in the other iodine thread where flat out insane. "You have erectile problems? Iodine will cure what ails you!" "You aren't sleeping well? Try some iodine!" "You are fat? Iodine!".
I supplemented like 10mg of iodine a day with Lugols solution for a few weeks, didn't make any difference to my health. So even if I am iodine deficient, its not a big deal.

Am using Nori (sushi wrappers) to wrap up my scrambed eggs for
breakfast wraps! Sooo good!
and because there's a bit of moisture going on with the eggs
they stick and hold together pretty well.
Many of us "minions" were politely posting articles that show good reason to be conservative and do one's research when it comes to iodine supplementation dosages. I don't recall ever opposing people supplementing iodine, but I think that some of the levels suggested in the "protocols" may pose a higher level of risk than is sensible. Also, some of the "detox" symptoms at high doses are suspiciously similar to the symptoms of iodine overdose.
Rational and reasoned disagreement isn't rudeness. It's normal debate, and if you cannot accept any criticism of your choices, then perhaps an internet forum is not the ideal venue for you, particularly one where people tend to be questioning sorts who want to read the literature for themselves and make informed choices.
