Hello & welcome!
If you have registered yet, you may have noticed that this is a site for vegans or for people who have decided to go vegan (or seriously consider it).
Like all other boards, we've had people who just come here to argue, for example people who pretend that they consider going vegan, but who only use their membership to argue against vegan viewpoints. Some of these claim to be 'almost vegans', but we've had several examples of lacto-vegetarians who initially claim that they want to switch, but who use every possible post to argue pro use of egg and dairy products, even after many months.
Maybe we should have two forums: one like veganforum.com. meant for vegans, and one for people who enjoy arguing pro/con veganism. Why not invite everybody, vegans or not, into all the subforums? Simply because the whole idea behind this site is to create a place where we can communicate about things from a vegan perspective, without the often tedious interruptions from non-vegans who often repeat the same few questions and arguments again and again and again.
For now we have only this forum to offer. We understand that many of you have questions, and that these questions often are the same questions we've been asked before, so I'll provide a list of links below, which points to threads around the forum which focus on some of the most frequently asked questions.
We have a built in search function. If you use Google, you can type site:veganforum.com before your keyword(s), which will let you find posts in our forum that even our built-in search engine sometimes can't.
If you consider going vegan, and your questions aren't answered after having looked around, just go ahead and post!
