If it's the RAW forum, it should be RAW, just like the Vegan forum is VEGAN, not "Veganish".

Just as it's inappropriate for vegans to post unsolicited anti egg, dairy and honey advice in the vegetarian area. Same principle applies here.

Here's a recipe for something that only has a little bit of egg in it." Same concept with raw vs. cooked foods in a raw forum.

You'd come HERE of course. I don't think anyone is suggesting that one must be 100% raw to post here, just as one needn't be 100% vegan to post in the vegan forum. Raw related questions and support belong here!

Why would you (or anyone) be expected or asked to leave simply due to percentage of raw eating? As long as you're supportive of raw eating and discussing raw eating, actual percentage shouldn't determine "right" to post here (again, using the vegan forum as an example, where many people who are NOT vegan post as long as it's pro or related to information about veganism).
