To me, one of giveaways has been Harley's recent slanderous comment towards me, of the same type he used when defending Doug on the 30bananasdasysucks forum in 2012. I am really wondering what the outcome would have been had they not lost their 'pioneer' status at WFF. I might even go as far as to say that perhaps I have no doubt.

Being a member of 30bad has been like living in a lalaland until I visited the sucks site and witnessed the above mentioned behaviors (http://blog.rawgosia.com/warning-about-the-raw-vegan-diet/). I could not believe that people would get slandered (eg http://web.archive.org/web/20131003153140/http://30bananasadaysucks.com/2012/06/former-vegans-now-turned-haters-evidently-i-am-now-eating-meat-news-to-me/) or threatened with violence (eg http://blog.rawgosia.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/DRtreath04062012v2.jpg) and bullied (eg http://web.archive.org/web/20131221024211/http://30bananasadaysucks.com/2012/05/one-year-811-almost-destroyed-my-health/) or attacked (lawsuit threats included) for sharing information, and expressing concerns about the safety of advice on health on a forum that they were able to do it without being censored (http://web.archive.org/web/20131214052058/http://30bananasadaysucks.com/2012/03/how-this-site-came-to-be-my-open-letter-to-durianrider/). As far as faking identities (eg http://web.archive.org/web/20131111171654/http://30bananasadaysucks.com/2012/05/harley-fabricates-lies-about-anthony-colpo-using-his-own-troll-accounts-busted/)... wow, what an arsenal of madness.

I am not sure whether this sort of action:
https://www.change.org/p/youtube-terminate-freelee-the-banana-girl-and-durianrider-s-multiple-youtube-accounts-and-internet-sites-and-ban-them-for-life

is going to have much impact, but it is concerning for me to observe that there seems to be no end of the worrying trends of behavior.

The solution seems simple. STOP. Is it too hard perhaps?

So, at the end of the day, the best one can do is to protect the freedom of speech, encourage responsible information sharing and getting educated (eg reading outside censored forums). Better information means that people can make better decisions and so tragedies such as deaths at fasting retreats or deficiencies as the result of following quacks, can hopefully be avoided.
