    I have been on some of these other paleo sites in the past and absolutely am in shock over the comments. The tedx postings, well, what can I say - so sad! They all sound like a group of elementary school nasties during recess...the language, the vehement comments....cyber bullies hiding behind a screen! I have never "seen" this here. Dr. K is to be commended without a doubt. Those other guys need to seriously have a Twinkie, cuz whatever they are doing, ain't workin' for 'em.

    So many people involved in all this cyber-sniping seem to have never learned how to relate to other people and empathize with the other's viewpoint. What really dismays me are those who criticize his theories without ever reading and thinking about the blogs. How can you legitimately critique someone when you don't know what he stands for? Ok, I get that you may not like him; that's fine, you don't have to like anyone if you don't want to. But I just don't grok all the hating.

    Birdy I wish you'd post that on the blog comments.....because I agree with you.

    Hmmm...I used to think PaleoQuacks was fun to read just for the entertainment value. However, "stepping over the line" has become quite common there. Interesting that it doesn't happen here. I for one really appreciate the measured response, the support and the encouragement that is all across this forum.



    In the words of Kurt Harris (the most popular Paleo non-blogger)... "I give up. Just let them eat grains!"

    Kevin Cottrel, Richard Nickoley (Free the animal) and Robb Wolf have all come out in support of Dr K through online posts, twitter comments etc. so Dr K is not quite alone in the wilderness :)

    I'd suggest you read Richard Nikoly blog on my being kicked off the cruise. I added some posts to it because some of the Paleo leaders have the story WRONG. I clear up that confusion with facts.

    I haven't been back to Nikoly's site since the last post about Jack. But....am I right when it looks like he is STILL talking about the time he called me the c word? I'm too bored to read into it and find out.

    The people defending what was done is just sickening. :( It raises my blood pressure to read the posts. LOL

    He tweeted that he was going to be on Fox news but I missed it. :(
     

  14. I can tell you, the only people that think Melissa and/or Carbsane lady are leaders is the relatively small group of frequent posters.



    the leaders for the paleo masses are:



    1. Mark Sisson

    2. Rob Wolf



    After that I wouldn't know how it breaks down, but for the general user - those two are appropriately evaluated. I think maybe Richard, but then it's very diluted.
     

  15. Yea, I was a very casual reader before that. I thought he had to think you were someone else. I have not been back since that. But, in surfing stuff from this Cruise fiasco, I read his post. He was actually trying to defend Jack against the "bren's" ;) that sent the tweet or something to that effect.

    Richard runs his site as an open forum to air dirty laundry......its kinda like a neighborhood bar where people go to shoot the breeze. He has a purpose with how he does things. He would call me on the carpet if I did something wrong or advocated something dangerous. He performs a vital duty for the community to keep things honest and as most of you can see this community has some fringe people in places based upon what they tried to pull on me last Sunday.
