Can someone please review CDone's comments to me especially here:
his comments in reply to my answer I believe constitute harassment, especially since they come in the middle of an all day campaign of badgering me with the statement "this diet is not a reenactment"
I've said many times that I disagree with that statement, but that's not enough for him, he seems to want to convince me of the rightness of his point of view, and he will not let it go.
My point of vie is that my opinion is also on the range of Paleo options and this is a forum, not a brainwashing scheme. We don't all need to mouth the same phrases. If that were true, we would only need one answer to each question.
He's personally attacking me and now he is also giving out personal information about me such as that my email is not "validated." Who cares, really? It's just an excuse for crummy behavior.
Hi @Girlgenius and @CDone - All I saw in the previous thread was Cdone challenging your opinions. I'm not really sure what you are up in arms about but I am inclined to be on his side in the fact that you seem to think your opinion about Paleo is THE opinion about Paleo.
Anyway, if you do not want to participate in the forum, that is fine. I would prefer to keep drama to a minimum.
OK fellas, enough's enough. I will simply stop participating. This kind of thing is optional and for fun and if it's not fun, why do it. I added an explanation to my profile and you guys have fun running the forum from now on.
After complaining of harassment by CDone primarily, but also a posse including wtfgod and Matt11 at various times especially on 6/16/2014, I decided not to participate in the forum any longer. There doesn't seem to be any further need of my opinions here. I was a proponent of hunting and fishing for your food at least some of the time and making your diet a re-enactment if you could find a group of people that you respected and whose diet worked for you.
For example, I appreciate the Eskimos very much and I try to follow a basically ketogenic diet that is also Paleo. I've found some modern analogs to some of the less convertible aspects of their diet such as electrolytes and broth instead of blood stew. Apparently this was not good enough for CDone or others who insisted that I should give up these behaviors which make me happy and for the first time in several decades, I feel healthy and well. They illogically insist that I should stop telling people about it. So I will.
I honestly don't see the problem he was having with me, but apparently there are unwritten rules.
I think CDone definitely stepped out of line and made some rude comments and snide remarks, but I don't think this is harassment.
So you have three choices: choice 1 - write something mean and nasty back (yes, it is not a great option but it is a lot of fun and your post would be deleted afterwards); choice 2 - ignore him because he acts as a bully; choice 3 - write a nice and reasonable response, pointing out that you think his tone is inappropriate.
