I just think these kind of threads are pointless.

No Cristian, I don't mean what people write in their 100 or 1000 posts is pointless, just that the posts to say whoever now has however many posts are pointless. :wink:

Ok, let`s stop discussing. Some like and enjoy those pointless threads and some don`t. That`s it. :argue:

But here is one for Rob: We have 657 members on the board. And guess how many did not have one post? 430! I think many of those non-posters are spammers.
Have a look at the member [url=http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/phpBB2/memberlist.php?mode=posts&order=ASC&start=350]list
[/url] in ordered by total posts:

For example:
spammer1
spammer2
spammer3
spammer2

I think there is the possibility of sending all those non-posters a personal-message and delete those who do not answer.

If this doen`t help you should think about granting access to the forum individually.

Seasiren, you gotta wake up and smell the coffee. :P

Still taste the coffee, just tastes different with sugar. Sweeter. Almost as sweet as you. :wink:

You like tea/coffee too? You really gotta try roobisch tea.

I love coffee and am starting to grow a fondness for tea. Occassionally one of my customers will send me some coffee from Puerto Rico...now that's coffee! I will have to find some roobisch. What kind of flavor does it have?

Don't drink too much tea though Seasiren - tea is bitter, and we wouldn't want you going all bitter. :P

I can't really describe what roobisch tastes like - much nicer than normal black tea. When I drink it it is pretty sweet coz I dunk two teaspoons of sugar in it. Of course you won't need to add sugar coz you are sweet enough as it is. :lol: It's really good for you too.

You keep laying it on thicker as you go. :hahaha:

I'll see if I can find some roobisch later today (I generally take my tea with a wee bit of agave).

Any half-decent health food shop will stock roobisch.

What the heck is agave? Is it sweet like sugar.

Do you put soy milk in your tea/coffee? I do.

Agave comes from cactus and tastes similar (but not as strong) to honey:

I purchase raw agave from my health food store, but it is now be carried by my main grocery also.

Yes, I use lite soy (just a smidge) in my coffee but not my tea.

Thanks for the link.

I'll have to see if I can get hold of any agave in the UK. I really need to find a decent sugar replacement.

This link provides some good information on agave nectar:

http://www.madhavahoney.com/agave.htm

Aside from Rooibos, there is another botanically related naturally caffeine-free full bodied tea grown in the same region of South Africa, which also has been lauded for its vitamin/mineral content and anti-oxidant properties. It's called Honeybush tea.

By now, there are so many 100% natural and highly nutritive vegan sugar alternatives, it's getting hard to keep up:

Agave nectar (derived from the Agave plant, a succulent)
Xylitol (derived from birch, lettuce, strawberries and other plants)
Erythritol (derived from melons, mushrooms, corn, etc.)
Stevia (extract from a Paraguayan shrub plant [s. rebaudiana])
Mamordica grosvenori (fructooliogosaccharides from an Asian citrus)

Agave nectar kinda tastes like honey and has the same consistency.
