Hrmm... just checked out the site. Even ignoring the who "anti-vegan" thing it's not exactly packed with information, is it? The "what can I eat" page pretty much only says "anything that isn't meat!". Duh? How about food groups, nutrition, recipes... you know, helpful stuff?
My dad, who as you know is a nuclear physicist, feels the same way about it.

Every animal you eat
was running for her life
Im mostly concerned that, since it's obviously a pro-vegetarian site, it might have enough credibility to persuade people not to worry that much about animal treatment in the egg and dairy industries. Its tempting to discount evidence that ones lifestyle should change, if it looks like that change will be hard.
That was my biggest concern about the site as well.
I grew up vegetarian and was vegetarian for 26 years.
I had no idea why I was vegetarian - I was just that way
because I grew up that way. Eating meat seemed gross, but dairy
was delicious. I didn't even realize until 2 months ago what animals were
going through etc... I immediately cut out all dairy/honey and am working to
become a full vegan in my everyday life.
If I had read that site my ignorance of animal suffering would have
continued on and I would still be a omelet loving vegetarian.
JMO of course, but I had no love for that leafy site.

I'm new here but just wanted to chip in. I know the people behind that website and they have a very strong agenda aside from the vegetarianism.
Their 'leader', Iain Scott, considers himself a bit of a guru with special powers and (last I heard) is 'married' to at least two women who volunteer for the charity (Rebecca Lincoln Scott and Sarah Scott, who have both taken his name). His overseas volunteers work very long hours, unpaid, with no days off. All his 'volunteers' are expected to participate in very intensive (I would say invasive) workshop-style meetings.
If you want to check it out for yourself, you could read Iain Scott's book, Human Potential - wherein he talks about an extraterrestrial experience he believes he has had, which has made him enlightened, etc:
Or feel free to ask me personally if you have any questions.
Something wrong with that? I have an extraterrestrial experience whenever I go to my garage to talk to Zegryb203.
"and I stand
upon a mountain
made of weak and useless men"
Erm yes it is true. That site is weird, I have never read any veggie forum be so dismissive of veganism especially for ethical/ cruelty reasons.
I just noticed it is an English site! I have never heard of it before.
i knew i smelled weirdness when i read that site, and that it wasn't coming from me.
