This is why I am leaving, so you can't be that far off.
When I first found this forum I really liked it. It seemed very friendly and it inspired me to start lifting weights and show everyone around me that vegans can be strong. But, I don't like coming here anymore because it seems most of the active members have been brainwashed by a quack chiropractor that pretends to be a nutritionist.
I'm sure there are a lot of people that feel the same as I do about this place. The worst part about it though, is that some people probably come here a few times, get some dangerous advice and become ill, then give up on veganism because it didn't work. Or, even worse, someone could die.
I'm going to join veganfitness.net and hopefully I like that place as much as I used to like this forum.
who is this?

If it was only occasional I wouldn't be a problem. But, some of the most active people on this forum are those fruitloops with the 811, b12 is a lie, protein is a myth, the government is trying to poison everyone, only eat fruit and your body will heal itself garbage. Allowing that to go on here only serves to undermine the entire purpose of this forum.
Whenever someone tries to push that 811 bullshit online they need to be called out if only to make it clear that it is something all together different than veganism.
