Advocating low carb seems to be the main one, IMHO as well as spamming, or being snarky to others.

I always have mixed emotions about change.
I did go to the link you provided and I got absorbed in their petguide.com recipe section.

Spamming a site, or just plain attacking people I can see as a reason not to keep people on but this would generally be handled by the sites moderators as it always has been. There are always spammers trying to get on sites to sell you little blue pills and ugg boots but those as well are normally removed before they can do any real damage.

The advocating of one diet over another is probably best left to an individual to decide but can of course be a topic of debate. Sharing information is pretty paramount with the make up of any forum.

Low-carb diabetics are welcome on this forum. Most diabetic forums do not welcome this approach in any way.

While we are somewhat of a haven for low-carb diabetics, not all of our members are low-carbers, nor do they intend to be. Diabetes is a condition for which there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Respectful discussion of all approaches is welcome. I believe this is a big part of what makes this community unique.

We will ban anyone who insults or degrades any other member. We don't sell anything; all spam is strictly prohibited, and spammers are banned. While we welcome professionals, we are not here to promote their services, nor can we verify their credentials. Therefore, professionals are not permitted to offer professional advice or promote their services in any way.

For general reference (and just 'cause it's a good excuse to publicize 'em), here's a link to the Forum rules.

I agree. Other sites I've visited think that low-carbers are pushing their way of eating. Sometimes they're just celebrating good numbers! (Of course, sometimes people do get a little over-ambitious, but rarely.)

Of course they are pushing their WOE, it works. Hard to argue otherwise with the results. I'll push it, if they don't pull a little, I don't feel guilty because I tried, but not going to be overly pushy.

Bob, I'm glad to see you are still with us. You would be missed a lot if you had to leave. You have built a wonderful support forum here. Congrats!

Welcome Philip! Looking forward to working with you.

I hope the delay in attracting new members will not cause the site to dissolve. I have not seen new members joining for many days, and there is so little activity. Maybe the missing members will return once the ball is rolling again.

I am speaking for myself here...LCHF way of living goes against everything I have ever been taught about correct eating growing up.It too me goes against the good ol food pyramid that carbs are an important feature in our food. It goes against most government nutritionist advice. I could go on more however I'll refrain. But I will mention Big Pharma and the food industry..well..
LCHF way of living..pretty much how our grandparents ate...It is not a diet..it's not a fad..it's a proven way ( proven to myself that is ) I've chosen to eat to keep my Diabeties 2 under control without medication...to the point where some doctors ( as I travel the world a lot) question whether I have been diagnosed correctly. I am healthier and have more energy than I ever have and am at the correct weight after many long years of struggling with that. It has also allowed me to even bring Graves' disease under control way quicker than " normal" I owe my health to everybody in this forum. I fell upon it accidentally..well maybe fate. I'll update my profile when I get time to show how far I have come in just 12 months. My cholesterol levels and everything else could not be better. This forum encourages you ask questions and find the answers for yourself and is a detrimental tool for me.
Welcome Phillip..maybe it's fate for you too, being here with us to see what an impact this forum has on so many people's lives.
Kind Regards, Karen
