I kind of feel like it's the crazies that drive people away, but maybe I'm off base with that.
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.
