    Wouldn't a simple solution be to create a sub-section of the forum dedicated to discussing the unadulterated Primal Blueprint. This area of the forum could be moderated, hopefully lightly, to allow those just starting and/or purists to talk through the lifestyle without the more further afield "hacks" coming into play. Then the rest of the discussion can carry on, as is, in the remainder of the forum.

    I wouldn't go that far, at least in most cases, but I do think that some here might benefit from finding something better to spend their time on, rather than arguing about eating habits.
    Life is short, you know?

    I like the line from MIB for this sort....

    Edwards: Why the big secret? People are smart. They can handle it.
    Kay: A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.

    On this forum we deal with a person, but sometimes they become people. Just human nature really.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the starchers openly declared themselves as pro-sugar. Instead, they hitchhike on the coat tails of Mark's hard work, by claiming to adhere to Paleo while advocating a diet closer to CW-SAD. Bait-and-switch is some of the nastiest cheating of all.

    And yes, I do expect Derpamix to fight back, and possibly the henchmen to join the fray. That is fine. My goal is not to win any of the arguments, but simply to identify the pro-sugar forum crashers for who they really are, so that newbies can make their own decisions free from deception.

    It's posts like this which make certain any forum descends into garbage. You actually have no idea what you're saying here. Anti-starch? Pro-starch? Deception? So much for functioning brains. Perhaps more humility and less hyperbole would allow it to function slightly better? I'd also say that anyone who opposes freedom of thought and/or new ideas is certainly still hanging on the coat tails of CW.

    That, plus folks like Paleobird making hysterical and libelous claims about people. I don't mind at all if someone disagrees with whatever I'm doing at the time, but flat out making stuff up is not becoming of anyone.

I'm secure enough in my logic and knowledge to discuss....even aggressively discuss opposing view points. Its a good thing.

    I like it when people on this forum discuss different views and oppinions. I learn much more from that, because I get to see both sides of arguments and make me question the theories on another level... Nutrition and Health are fascinating topics I think, so please keep on discussing!
    What on earth?! Take a walk on the wild side.

    I like the people who come with different ideas and if they post that OMG, all this meat is awful and eat more potatoes and beans, well, I find it entertaining to watch people explode who think carbs are toxic and all we should eat is coconut oil and bacon.

    I also think it is interesting to see what works for others. I would hope people can accept the differences in needs across a population of people. The only thing that makes me sad is the rampant food fear regarding healthy foods. People can't seem to grasp that carb fear is as irrational as fat fear.

    I do worry sometimes that participation in this site is supporting disordered eating for some people and that is sad. My hope would be that they can see that what they are doing is not getting them where they want to be and that they see men and women with good health and a healthy approach to eating as the role models.

    I would hope they don't moderate as there are some great posters here and I enjoy the often bawdy and humorous evolution of some of these topics that generally end with photos of abs lol!

    I think you might find it hard to find a lawyer to sue somebody who hurt your feelings by criticizing you on the internet, unless you want to pay up front of course.
