It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Yes, so I won't protest the fact that Jon Anderson is listed twice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> 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.<br><br><br><br>
Einstein wasn't a 100% vegetarian, but pretty close to one.

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