Hi Jim, I feel most comfortable with the term "plant-sourced" since I'd rather people ask me what it means rather than recoil from me thinking I'll attack their tastes/values/comfortable existence. I use "vegan" in restaurants because the server doesn't have the time or inclination to ask me about my lifestyle. I like "veg*n vagabond" though! Mind if I borrow it?
I don't nitpick over whether someone is truly vegan or not. Some people change their lives completely immediately and others pace themselves. Most get to the same place in the end.

The point is conceded. I agree, as I indicated above, because fish and chicken eating "vegetarians" do muddy the waters a great deal. Leather, wool, and silk wearing "vegans" I am sure can be equally frustrating to full vegans.
I eat a 99.99% vegan diet. As far as anyone knows by observing me, I eat a 100% vegan diet. When I order food for flights and food in restaurants, I always order vegan. Am I a dietary vegan or do we create a new name and muddy the waters even more with something like "vegetan"?
I would simply say that you eat a nearly vegan diet.
I have to thank all of you, again, for all of your support and feedback. Since posting this, I have been 100% vegan with my diet. I don't think I have been even slightly tempted. :)
