It isn't a matter of someone thinking that the Rolling Stones were the best band of the 60s when other people really think it was the Beatles.

It is a matter of persistently posting misinformation that could get people sick, stall progress in their training and from a more selfish point of view.....have them going away thinking that vegan diets suck, possibly telling other people.

Fallen Horse didn;'t mention banning in the post that started this thread either. He asked for heavier moderation.

No disrespect.

"Prevention is better than cure."

80/10/10 diet looks about as natural of a diet as you can get.Don't know why you seem to be in fear of it spreading to more people...

And if people are so worried with their b12 etc, just get a blood test every 6 months.That's what they're for.

And if people try a vegan diet with tons of fruit and greens as 80% of their diet i don't think they will think it sucks.They will feel the best they ever have.

Training and diet is a completely subjective thing, how I eat and train suits me and I stick to it, but for someone else it may not be suitable. This doesn't mean I should keep my training and diet methods to myself, someone could actually benefit from my methods.

As for misinformation that would get people sick, any reasonable person of sane mind wouldn't go off advice from one person on a forum when others are countering the advice, unless they genuinely believe what is being said and then who are we to stop people following this path. Like the breatharians, that is such crazy movement, but lots of like minded people are getting together and following this movement, no matter how much you tell them it's crazy.

Don't remember saying that I said Fallen horse had said ban people?

Wisdom is not intelligence, maturity, knowledge, realization or anything else. Wisdom is a skill that can't be learnt or gained. Not even by reading the bible. It's part of a person since birth; its the ability of doing anything within a persons morals. When I mean anything; I actually mean anything. Every Professional Sport, every type of education. Being born with wisdom is being born a natural leader. Being born with the wisdom is being born with the wisdom and energy of Jupiter.


I've not read your other posts, but you seem to weave in and out of logical thought like a yoyo... last time I checked Jupiter was a big ball of gas...

.

I'm interested to know what you think Jupiter is made up of, if it isn't gas? It may have a solid core, but that would be only a small percentage of its total mass.

Gas has mass, and is affected by gravity, and can be in orbit.

Dude, no offense, you are coming into the middle of a movie and making comments on things you haven't seen, don't know what you are talking about, etc.

If Jupiter is just "gas" like you say...why is the Sun holding jupiter in its orbit?

We are energy just like everything in the universe and everything affects us like we affect everyone. Most people are bound by "time" which limits the the internal energy they have.

Systems like astrology, human system, etc... all measure energy but energy does not need to be measured but simply used and recharged.

In reality we are simply complex batteries in which our capacity for energy increases and decreases based on how active we are. The more energy we use; the more our energy's capacity increases. The less energy we use; the more our energy's capacity decreases.


Your quite amusing actually, again weaving in and out of logical thought like a yoyo!

If you want to learn about jupiter there is a website to help you with that www.google.co.uk even better go straight to this website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter get back to me and let me know if human wisdom is derived from the wisdom of Jupiter.

I'd like to know how old you are? just curious

from the complex equation 2011 - 2097 = -86

Actually 2097 i'm curious about your username too, any significance in 2097?

I take it this thread is fairly representative of the quality across this forum? If so, yes, you need better moderation.

It isn't a question of rights. The banjos are still free to post their nonsense online. The community has the right not to give them a platform. The problems are compounded if the banjo is unable to determine the significance of their opinion. Rather than putting it out there once for discussion they decide it merits debate on every thread.

If someone is unable to play nice with the other children maybe they need some time on the naughty step to think about what they've done. Maybe a banning order doesn't have to be permanent.

I seem to remember veganpotter was banned not for an outrageous offence but for the overall health of the community. From the outside it seems in worse shape now than then, but maybe I'm wrong there.

Not really wrong there.

Many of the people who really knew their stuff have all flown the coop. xjohanx, medman and plenty of others who used to be a wealth of info all disappeared in the past year or so, it has pretty much been a free-for-all of everything ranging from valid to tinfoil hat ever since.
