@polynesian_metal: then that would be your answer for 1. 2 and 3 are pretty easy.

I'm here because I don't understand Paleo. I have a rough idea, I'm a newb and I'm getting results from it so I'm just trying to educate myself here.

I'd start with "Wheat is something you eat, yes or no?"

This question arose from Shari Bambino's funny comment, but, really, it might be fun to come up with some hypothetical criteria!

Rather than offer questions about how in line with the paleo diet the person is, I would suggest (for this hypothetical exam) questions from the FAQ. It isn't important that a person posting on here follow the paleo diet, just that they are thoughtful, sincere, helpful, and on topic. Paleo is a starting point for thinking about diet and lifestyle questions. There are loads of tweaks that people implement for what's right for them. And the benefit of the forum is that the people here are well-informed and think critically for themselves, and they share their experiences (either personal or from their clients) and the information they've found in their search for health and wellness. S'wonderful.

Just need all hands on deck to flag things like spam, and IP bans, the worst trolls are usually repeat offenders.

You could always ask people 1) Why they are joining the site, 2) What their current diet is like, and 3) What they understand about a Paleo diet

Are you aware that you may be overweight? Feel bloated? Have insatiable cravings for certain types of food? Low energy, lethargy? Do you frequently have a food coma? Constipated?

Questions most likely related to the effects of a SAD diet. If you answered yes to one or some then maybe you should hang out a bit.

seriously in all humour.
