Smile Hi

Hi, I’m Steve, been a working my way up to being a vegan for 35 years, finally stopped eating and using animal products last year. First, mainly for health reasons, then for animal rights and environmentalism. Have become so enthusiastic that I created a website, wedigfood.com, to become throughly involved in the “movement”, see it as part of my involvement with Buddhism. Was shocked by the far reaching and horrible effect the non-vegan food industry has on our planet.

WELCOME!!

The non-vegan food industry aspect is alarming. Good luck with your efforts.

I also embrace the Eastern Thought of No Harm......if only more people would.

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.

Thanks for the responses. Hello back to all of you. Would like to engage with members who discuss the environmental effects and animal rights abuse issues related to the non-vegan industry. Which forum would that be? Also I see that Capstan is a moderator…do you know how I set up my account to receive emails if someone responds to a post I put up? Also, what is a trackback?
Thanks again.
Steve

Check out our Activist Forums. It has sub-forums for animal issues, animal rights and welfare, environmental issues, action alerts, and activist discussions. It's a great place to exchange ideas on all these subjects.

By default, your e-mail address is not visible to other members. You can change this setting by going to your User CP (control panel) and, in the left-hand column, click Edit Options. VB has an in-house Private Message system, where you should be able to exchange private messages with any other member, without making any changes. These are not e-mails, but are contained within the VB website. For security reasons, because we are a public forum, we encourage members not to publish their personal e-mail addresses, but it's up to you. Private Messages is a much safer way to go.

Happy posting!

Thanks for the quick reply, will check that forum.

Actually I was asking about getting a notification email when someone responds to my post or directly contacts me. Now I use the internal search engine and put in my name, wedigfood, to see if someone has responded to my post. That is how I figured out that you answered my question. I am sure there is an easier way.
Thanks again
Steve

Go to User CP, then options and there is a drop down box under "default thread subscription mode". Change it to "instant email notification"

Hiya Steve and welcome. I'm quite new here too, both the forum and veganism. I'm also interested in Buddhism and try to live my life by many of its philosophies. I will check out your webpage.

Thanks, nice to meet you. I appreciate you checking out the site, please take a look at the post that I put up about Thich Nhat Hanh.

I have another site, www.fairtrademarket.com that contains lots of Buddhist information that you also might be interested in. In my opinion I don't see how one could not be vegan if they followed the Buddhist philosophy, at least in the First World.
