Veganism and vegetarianism are typically based on deeply held values and, as such, people (on both sides) often tend to get emotional about them. If someone challenges one of our beliefs, it is very easy to react with passion instead of with good communication. Add to that the Internet is a horrible medium for communicating about emotional issues (due to the lack of body language and voice inflection), and flame-fests can break out very easily.

You are lucy to have found VegSource, and particularly Jo Stepaniak's corner of it. This is one of the calmest, most supportive discussion boards I have seen, thanks to the influence of our gracious host.

Unfortunately, things have been a little quiet here lately. However, stick around, because there are some very nice folks here.
