    How many times do you need Joerg to say no? It's been at least 4 in the time I've been here.

    Ok, I have studied a lot about nutrition and different styles of diets. I've been a 100% raw food vegan for a full month , then I was a vegan for 3 years. Now I am back to omnivoring. But I plan to have my diet consist of self raised animal protein and majority of intake from homegrown green vegetables (paleo/primal diet). But I am behind Tilia on this issue. There is nothing wrong with discussing.

    I don't want a hunting section per se , but I wouldn't mind it existing at all and would read it.


    EDIT: Tilias point is (IMO... I didnt read this stuff coz you all spammed it) that conventional agro business farms shouldnt exist, but free range grass fed cows and other livestock fed its natural diet are ok. IF only people learned that meat intake shouldn't be daily and you should only buy stuff raised locally from places where you can see the livestock wander the field....

    After reading through this thread, here's my conclusion-

    We very recently had someone banned for being a disruptive, irritable and hyper-sensitive $%$# that verbally attacked anything that moved. However, it can take a bit a bit of time to calm down after being consistently on guard against insult after the barrage that many folks here received from said 'spook'. We all got a bit on edge and hopefully we'll get off of said edge soon enough and back to our typically uncivilized banter.

    I agree with you Tilia. No hard feelings on my side of things. We are simply people that disagree. And that's okay. I know some folks really get upset at the thought of strongly worded discussions, but to me what's more important is how it turns out in the end. I thank you for a spirited discussion yesterday. :)

    I think he already answered that question ABH1 - It may have been hard to spot that response among the many posted yesterday: As he stated above, he'd prefer hunting questions to remain in the general discussions forum, with no posting of 'gruesome' photos, and no sub-forum for hunting, at least at this time.

    If you read the thread, you'd have seen Jörg's post where he said he's not a hunter.

    I don't dislike hunters. It must be done, and some people need the food.

    But I dislike cruelty against anything that lives. Unfortunately most self declared "slingshot hunters" seem to bask in the glory of gory pictures of brutally killed animals. This forum isn't a place for those guys.

    With strictly enforced rules and oversight provided by two admins: one pro-hunting, one anti-hunting. The fact of the matter is a significant percentage of slingshot shooters do hunt game for the purposes of food and utility. It is also a well known fact that slingshots can be phenomenally accurate weapons that can be used to kill as humanely as a firearm.

    Individual integrity is the key, if you're not proficient enough to humanely kill an animal, which you intend to eat, then don't do it. People who hunt for food are intrinsically no more 'bad' than meat eaters who purchase the product of someone else's kill from a supermarket.
