Seems like my opinions are being attacked by a moderator. Seems like it's time to go.
This is exactly the kind of drama that we do NOT need on this site. You and @VB have been warned. I will not tolerate toxic, trolling behavior. It contributes nothing to this site or its users and only serves to validate your own egos.
Thank you @Matt 11 for closing this thread.
You need to understand that this is a forum and people debate in forums. I might go so far as to call this a debate forum, even though it's labeled as a Q&A. If you don't like it when people disagree with you, if you don't like defending your position, if you don't like conflict and opposition, then yes - quit. If you can take a little heat and learn from disagreements then stick it out and grow some thicker skin.
Understand that nobody is always right. I can absolutely guarantee that many of your "opinions" are downright wrong. I know for certain that some of my own opinions are wrong. I take the arguments with a grain of salt and usually keep my opinions, even if they're wrong.
First. As a "Moderator" I get to delete spam -- and I do it for free. So let's not put some perception of grandeur around a position that is essentially a trash collector -- I certainly do not.
Did I attack your postions? Yes -- that's called intellectual honesty. But while I tired to engage in a debate (weird for a Q&A forum), you simply attacked me personally.
I would not suggest that you leave this forum, I would suggest that you be prepared to defend and discuss your opinion (preferably through scientific analysis) without resulting in ad hominem attacks.
If you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen. You've done your share of stirring the pot, and - SURPRISE! - you aren't getting a free pass on it. Grow some thick skin, this is the interwebz. You aren't being attacked, you're just playing a victim card.
...must distract the mods..but how...THINK Truthy..think....aha!
I need to take down Matt first -figure THIS out Mr. Smarty pants.
CuSCN+KIO3+HCl === CuSO4+KCl+HCN+ICI+H2O
Then, to create a couple waves of spam for CD - CD if you're reading this, go to the front page, there's spam there, I promise.
And a quick THHQ fake out - R&S
Now that everyone's thoroughly distracted...
to answer your question....
Hi. Please do not quit the forum. I feel this forum is very valuable. We may all eat and exercise differently. We do not have to be where someone else is. I look at this forum as a place to learn. When I first started Paleo , I started slow. I have made more positive changes a long the way. I am not 100 percent Paleo , but it is working for me. I notice some people are the forum are very direct, but I feel the information they give is good. Thank you all for the knowledge you share.
It is up to you, but I wouldn't quit this forum because of two (or three or more) bullies or morons. Why do you think they come here? To raise their self-esteem that is probably dangerously (for others) low. Most likely, they don't get any, don't know what to do with their hands, etc.
You can either ignore them, fight them or mock them - it is up to you. I personally prefer the mockery because it is a lot of fun.
Also, look at the situation this way: they are just a bunch of young kids, inexperienced, who know close to... nothing. So they are trying to "impress" the others on Paleohacks by showing off. Well, it is pretty obvious to people who are older and wiser that they are ... let me put it mildly - not that knowledgeable.
Plus, high testosterone levels lead to aggressive behavior. I don't even think they realize it themselves that they appear aggressive. By the way, you attacked him yourself! You called him a troll and told him to go away!!!
If I were you, I would stick around, because chances are, you will get a lot of good answers (and some bad ones too) to your questions. Just ignore their comments, questions, and answers.
