30BaD FADs: Frequently Added Discussions
Why do abusive forum members get banned?
Why does 30BaD censor or edit discussions?
Why is 30BaD a dictatorship and not a democracy?
How come there is no freedom of screech?
Do the peacekeepers just randomly suspend people for fun?
In a court of law this is considered hearsay and is usually inadmissible. Hearsay is information gathered by one person from another person concerning some event, condition, or thing of which the first person had no direct experience. When submitted as evidence, such statements are called hearsay evidence. As a legal term, "hearsay" can also have the narrower meaning of the use of such information as evidence to prove the truth of what is asserted. Such use of "hearsay evidence" in court is generally not allowed. This prohibition is called the hearsay rule.
In these cases, one has to ask why they are getting so emotional over such hearsay evidence, and gossip from people they may have never met and never will meet?
If experience here @30BaD has been positive and or life changing, does hearsay really matter?
30BaD is a democracy. When people sign up and or log in, they do so of their own free will, and by doing so, are casting their vote in favor of 30BaD ideology, rules, and regulations.
Membership @30BaD is at will membership with both parties having the right to terminate the membership at anytime. By signing up and participating here @BaD, one is voting with their membership in favor of 30BaD policies, rules, and regulations.
In life, we are entitled to our rights, but these rights also come with responsibilities. At 30BaD, members have the right to discuss and get assistance in following whole raw fresh fruit and lettuce green based diet, and to do the same regarding animal rights and environmental issue.
Members have a responsibility to stay on topic and assist other members in doing so in a respectful manner, and without scamming, spamming, slamming or other forms of harassment.
When members sign up at 30BaD, they agree to the following:
We would like to extend a particular welcome to...
those of you who are interested in or currently following a low fat raw vegan lifestyle. We here at 30 bananas a day honor Nature’s/Gaia's design and believe a low fat raw vegan lifestyle is what both humans and the planet thrives on. We are dedicated to helping the planet and supporting individuals who are similarly motivated.
First and foremost this network was created to support people wanting to succeed on a low fat raw vegan lifestyle not those wanting to debate the validity of it. So please if that's why you want to join, read 811, peruse the forum and do your research first then join us when you are convinced that this is the right way to go.
Once you have signed up please read the forum guidelines to ensure your stay with us is long and productive.
Please note: We will not tolerate "anti-fruit" posts or advice that recommends calorie restriction/or the suggestion that others are "overeating on fruit", also recommending others restrict their water intake will not be supported on 30BaD. These threads will be deleted and you will be given a warning. This advice is not only unproductive but dangerous to the health of our members.
If the 30BaD crew decides that you are not ready to be part of the community here for any reason or you are being obviously unproductive on the site then your membership status may be in jeopardy. The 30BaD crew is fair and NEVER suspends anyone for NO reason. If you are suspended please feel free to reapply by contacting DR or Freelee.
We welcome you to please join up if you are happy to work with us and abide by the community guidelines. If you choose not to then your participation in this community will be short. Whilst we don’t want to lose anyone, we also need to do what’s necessary to maintain the high-vibe and purpose of the group.
We apologize if this form sounds a bit serious but we have learnt through experience that it is necessary. You will soon find out that we are a happy, passionate, helpful bunch of banana munchers who you will love being around!!
Please fill out the profile questions in detail and we look forward to assisting you on your low fat raw vegan journey!
By signing up, they agree to read the guidelines and to post within guidelines posted here:
Most members are greeted with a link to the welcome wagon to get a further idea of how we do things, what works, and for inspiration:
The banana wagon tour answers a lot of the who, what, where, when, how, and why questions that many people ask.
Evidence for Guidelines
When Not in Agreement
After reading the above materials and scoping out 30BaD, people are not convinced they want to follow the guidelines when posting, they should not sign up.
After signing up, one finds they are not in agreement, they can keep quiet, ask a 30BaD team member to suspend their accounts but leave their discussions in tact, or delete their own accounts and leave those who are in agreement in a mature and peaceful fashion.
For those with an axe to grind, or wish to follow animal based diets such as paleo, high fat diets, high protein diets, low carb and or low calorie diets, or even cooked vegan diets, please read this post and then:
So for those who do not volunteer to take it somewhere else, here is how the 30BaD team handles things.
Be it known that 30bananasaday does not discriminate based on gender, creed, color, ethnicity, faith, orientation, or race (for ultimately aren't we all part of just one--the human race?) In your communications on this forum, we appreciate your respectful consideration of your fellow Earthlings.
30BaD does have guidelines about posting here and posts that are outside of those guidelines are edited, deleted or responded to accordingly, it's been that way since the beginning and it is one of the reasons this place is the gem that it is, always keeping the focus on the high carb 811 lifestyle.
As much as we don't like to censor anyone and avoid doing so, we feel these guidelines are necessary to maintain the integrity of the community.
Please address any questions, comments or criticisms about the 30BaD guidelines and or moderation to a peacekeeper, the forums are not the place to do this.
If you make a habit of being disrespectful to the 30BaD team you may be deleted from the forum. This kind of behaviour is unnecessary and we will not support it.
Speak your mind but keep it helpful!
Posts that are outside of 30BaD guidelines, too off topic, a distraction or deemed inappropriate will be edited or deleted. It's up to you to contact a peacekeeper if you have any questions, comments or criticisms about moderation, the forums are not the place to do this.
The 30BaD crew is fair and never bans anyone for no reason and any decisions they make are final and not open to debate. 30BaD has a 1 month cooling off period for anyone suspended. This gives them time to re-read the guidelines and get a feel for the forum. If suspended members would like to rejoin after their month off, they can message the administrators through the 30BaD message box that comes up when they try to sign in.
If we discover you deliberately misrepresenting 30BaD on other forums we may remove your profile from 30BaD, after all why be somewhere that you do not want to be?
Abusing, stalking, and harassment of other members and or the 30BaD team is not tolerated and will lead to an instant deletion.
It is 30BaD's policy that people should not make sexual jokes about someone's body if the person they are commenting on has not done anything to invite them to do this. This is a forum about health and bodies and is family friendly. Clear boundaries are important in order for people to feel comfortable and respected, and it should be assumed that if someone hasn't behaved in a sexual and flirty way when discussing their own body, then sexual language from strangers is not welcome. This is a healthy way to ensure that all of us of every age and gender have an equal opportunity to benefit from the high quality of guidance on this forum when it comes to matters of their bodies and how they are responding to the lfrv diet and lifestyle which is first and foremost the focus here on 30BaD.
For spammers, scammers, and other slammers, there is total membership deletion, and such acts will not be tolerated.
This protects not only forum members from hurting each other, but protects the overall website from legal implications, and reserves the right for the website team to remove the offending material and or individual if need be.
We ask that members please keep to the classic right speech rule and ask themselves before posting, "is it kind, is it true, is it helpful".
Thanks so much for helping this be a community that reaches many audiences.

The 30BaD team only has the best intentions in the service of this community, and would like to see all thrive and not just survive, and to then take this message to the ends of the earth and change the world.
All of our thanks goes to Freelee and Durianrider for paying the bills and keeping the lights on for us, and for the peacekeepers hours of hard work behind the scenes to keep this a well oiled machine: priceless.
We hope that in return, members will recognize our good intentions, and cooperate respectfully with us and with each other.
There is no strength in numbers, rather strength in unity, and we look forward to many future years of cooperation, love, and peace.
For those of us who have been given second chances at health and life, perhaps it is time to pay it forward, and 30BaD is the perfect platform to do so.
The 30BaD Team
