To both Ganesh and VeganMom: No, I'm not Daniel or mermaid (God forbid!). I also do not block those who disagree with me on principle. If a radical veg*n blocks me, I do the same in return. Oh, well.
I'm open and able to discuss differences; I just don't understand why some people won't. To both of you: I like you both, too. You are the epitome of rational veg*ns here. There are several more, and I will not give up on rational discussion with those who are open to such.
EDIT: VeganMom: I also dislike rabid meat eaters, who troll this section. To me, trolls are trolls, no matter which side of the fence they are on.
