It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Yes, so I won't protest the fact that Jon Anderson is listed twice

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

This was only HALF the list of famous vegetarians. I wasn't allowed to post more than 10,000 letters on this forum. So I had to cut the list in half.

Well, Daniel Johns (Singer and guitarist of silverchair) is on there 3 times. Quite a few are multiples. It's odd.

PJ Harvey's veg*n? If she is, then it isn't for ethical reasons cos she advocates fox hunting.



Einstein wasn't a 100% vegetarian, but pretty close to one.

Where did this list come from? How accurate or up-to-date is it? It seems to list people who are dead (John Lennon).

I think the limit is 10,000 characters per message. If you want to post something longer, you just need to divide the text up into two or more messages AFAIK.
