Boy, things got cranky around here. I've got nothing to say about that - except "Trust me, I'm the least vegan-y person you will ever meet in your life" - but I do have something to say about setting up alternate sites.

I think it's a great idea for a couple of reasons.

First, although I have personally built a shrine to Heather in my front yard and worship at it regularly in gratitude for her plan having helped me get my IBS stabilized, I do acknowledge that her approach does not necessarily work for everyone. It would be great if there were other sites that explored other approaches *civilly*.

Second, for as long as I've been on the Boards - and that's a long, long time - there have always been sub-groups who do get relief from Heather's approach but want their own separate section anyhow: a lot of people with C ; people with a history of Eating Disorders (someone actually set up a Yahoo group for that); vegans who want a special recipe section; and so on. It takes literally 15 minutes to start a blog on BlogSpot so if you think this will help you and others, go for it.

Be warned however - running a Website is a lot of very, very hard work. It's time-consuming; trolls lurk everywhere; some of your users will say about you exactly the same kinds of things you say about Heather; and you'll be darn lucky if one person in a hundred says, "Thank you."

Which brings me to my final point: Thank you, Heather. And thank you to those users who have signed up for the job of moderator. Without you, chaos.
