"Hmmm, not so sure these strawpeople that you keep bringing up have any relevance or the meaning of the saying, but anyway if people want to keep supporting org.s that focus on conditions and treatment instead of animal rights that is their choice,…"
"We all live in 2014 where vegetarian (and "veg" as in "go veg") means consuming/wearing animal products like chicken eggs, cows milk, honey, silk, wool, etc. and vegan means no consumption/wearing. Historical meanings are moot -…"

Great bit of humor to lighten up the bloodbath from the backstabbing Harley and Freelee have sustained.

"Interesting theory, Pete, but in 20 years of veganism I find it very untrue. "Vegan" celebrities that aren't vegan only serve to water down veganism, the issues involved, and increase speciesism. When "vegan" celebrities can…"

I have been vegan since 1995. A few years ago I was HFRV for about 2 years, then went back intense schooling and moved to Portland, Oregon (so many vegan restaurants, snacks, etc...) and let my health slide - HFV. Now I am getting back into raw, but the LFRV 811 way, and have transitioned well into it (and I feel transitioning at a pace that works is key).

Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I am a long time vegan, went raw after 11 years of veganism, but after 2 years went off it and ate HF non-raw (but def. still vegan) for about 3 years. I think 80/10/10 is much more natural and liking it.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because I like totally agree with all this
