Why Are Some threads blocked for discussing meat?

Only two of the forums clearly state they are vegan only, so why is discussion of meat products banned on the other forums? surely the website is for: Living And Raw Foods. Don't see Vegan or Vegeterian in there. I'm not trying to offend anyone, was just wondering why we can't discuss raw meat and raw meat products?

The entire board is for raw vegan food only. Other foods are often discussed, and sometimes encouraged, but as far as threads encouraging other than raw vegan foods, no, no, no. Read the first post in the first forum, it explains things pretty clearly. I haven't read it in a while, but I am pretty sure my memory is straight.

Personally I think it's a poor decision to block threads that are talking about meat.

Denial & censorship is not the proper way to win intelligent converts.

whadya wanna talk about?
meat is meat

by product :uric acid--->crystallize---> gout
uric acid in back, crystallize ----> bad back
undigested in intestines: putrification
karma: must be paid back somehow

levels of aggression: higher
due to : hormones, steroids pumped in to make it bigger

other goodies in meat: antibiotics yumm smiling smiley

rainforest: is cleared rapidly and daily to make grazing pastures for cattle to be fattened to be slaughtered

meat is not a happy topic
maybe that is why people don't talk about it

cuz people here wanna mostly stay in the solution
can't figure out why else to not talk about it

its a fair topic

Joe: It's a fair topic...this is just not the forum. An AA meeting is not the place to discuss drinking more beer. LOL.

But this forum was set up for vegan discussions.

Personal initiative will yield someplace to discuss meat.

No one is forced to use this forum. If we do so, we should respect the hosts wishes. Nothing difficult about that.

That's not a fact. I have not noticed rawfoodists to be less aggressive in general.

Not a good analogy. People trying to give up beer generally know it's bad. People considering giving up meat should be exposed to the pros and cons so they can make an informed decision.

I have eaten meat and I have read lots of info on meat. I have seen how meat is processed. I feel like that is enough exposure to say with confidence that there are no pro's to eating meat. If you feel like discussing meat I would rather you go to the "Dead and Rancid Food Forum". I come here to learn of raw and vegan food.

Joe: I think it is a good analogy. People that come to a vegan forum are generally of the opinion that animal products are bad.....or are trying to give up animal products. I wouldn't go to a carnivorous forum to learn the pro's and cons of fruit eating (even though its a fair discussion)! LOL. Of course, however YOU think is right to eat - I support you 100%.

it's a great analogy, David smiling smiley

People considering giving up meat suspect it is bad as well, otherwise they probably wouldn't be giving it up.

Meat is NAAASSSTYY, to me at least, it's an animal that once lived. Animals are humans trapped inside. How would you like it if we ate you.

there's a book called

"How To Eat Fried Worms"

I read it a long time ago
i think they made it into a movie
well, anyways
if i recall correctly
they had to put LOTS AND LOTTTS of ketchup
can't remember if they put mustard

but well... hmmmm.. i don't know
i'm not sure i could eat fried worms

that would be like eating meat
and i don't like meat smiling smiley

Well, don't you letting people post articles discussing meat (and then letting others post opinions about why meat eating isn't ideal) is better than not dealing with the subject at all?

Really? Thanks! grinning smiley
