I donít mean all the time of course, but some people are more self-oriented and some other more altruistic as a whole. As for this verbal strife you are mentioning, I am really shocked that things can go that far on a board! But this isnít uncommon according to my experience. There are so many wicked people, arenít there?
After all, you are only trying to make their lives better right? But apparently this person insists on eating him/herself to death, so what can you do? One thing that Iím only just beginning to realize (after 25 years of being a veggie) is that you cannot help, nor save, nor heal people against their own will, but the problem is Iím still trying to!

I once heard this saying: ďYou canít make a crooked tree straightĒ But a crooked tree still bears fruits, doesnít it? So Iíd rather say after Lucien Blaga, a Romanian philosopher:
ďAbout remaining strong-headed: a truck on a winding road does not wind any more than when on a straight road Ľ.Sorry for the approximate English! Meaning you donít want to divert from your original intention when you first posted on the board you are talking about, do you? Seems to me that legal action might be exactly what this ďunpersonĒ is waiting for in order to make up for his/her lack of identity.

I donít know anything about suing someone in those conditions, it might be extremely costly in terms of time and energy also, while you might just want to hush him/her down instantly with a few words? Apparently you already have found his/her flaws since he/sheís getting that violent (people donít like to be faced with their own inner sinful self) and it sounds like you have won this battle already: after all, what he/she is striving to do is destroy your self-image but what do you care since it has nothing to do with your real self? If I were you, Iíd let him/her wrangle with his/her own contradictions and wear him/herself out.

Iím so glad that this site doesnít get attacks like that one! I just love it and Iím already getting addicted to it for there are so many great people on it, and I just canít get enough! Iím so grateful for all the cooking and medical advices and interesting stories and articles like yours, E.C.!

Donít you think that all the destructiveness all around is presently reaching its peak for the rulers of this world donít want to let go and would rather destroy it completely, including themselves, than give it back to God? If youíd like to give us details as to what aspect of vegetarianism these scoundrels are attacking you about, Iíd love to give you a hand as much as I can.
