Where do the live-and-let-live paleo/primals gather?

The law enforcers of Paleo and the haters of vegans get tiring and suck the fun out of a vibrant and diverse community. Is there a place they gather? Surely not all of us are trolls and know it alls?

I can respect that. I'm more speaking to the need by the administrator and this community for this site to be attractive to Paleo Celebrities because of the desire to be a Paleo Celebrity himself. He will often refer to the stupid and nutjob people. I'm not impressed with that. If his agenda is to make this site an advertisement for his credibility--and the measure is the number of "kooks" or idiots then it's never going to work.

Just because I can't have my way doesn't mean I have to change my opinion.

I think you expressed a valid point of view; my dislike of seeing people enjoy taking digs at others is another. We can support each other in thriving on this lifestyle without jumping on divergent points of view--yes, including vegetarians and vegans.

That's because those things cannot be controlled in this setting. Why anybody thinks they can I do not know--they can only be mitigated and damage controlled. The discussion about weeding out the "stupid" people or the "nutjobs" is a little disturbing. I got news for ya. Stupid people are paleo too and they're not going to stop googling and arriving here just because they aren't smart enough or marketing-friendly enough for the administrator.

Thomas, lemme say I've contemplated quitting many times. The amount of people who are "paleo" who belong in a mental hospital is quite substantial.

It's good to be around people who are similarly wired in real life.

Melissa, you have me very curious about these New York Paleo people. There must be some hilarious/obnoxious re-enactment and one-upmanship going on at these events.

You New York paleo meetupers and us Boston paleo meetupers should meet up some time when the weather gets nice. It would be like Yankees vs Sox, except totally different in every way.

well the typical protocol is we have public events (we've learned not to make have too much personal investment in case of crazies, so like large group mixers where certain people can't dominate). If we meet cool people IRL there then we'll invite them to the FB group. You should come to the meetup tomorrow!

No idea. I haven't met any paleo adherents outside the internet. It's a hard knock life ... :p

I know everything, but I am antisocial, so I gather with my family only, I am the leader of my tribe.

My favorite part of this question is that it was asked in April 2011 and yet here we are in Jan 12 talking about "can't we just get along?" "how do we tame the trolls?" "PH tone has changed"

Guess the answer was Don't Know because all those issues are still around. :-))

You used to say "live and let live"
(You know you did, you know you did, you know you did),
But if this neolithic world in which we're livin'
Makes you give in and cry,
Say "Live and Let Die!"

Because there were too many of those people on the main meetup group for NYC, there is a private invite-only one as well. I heard people in DC have a similar thing going on.
