I informed everyone in a previous debate thread, but I thought I'd do a formal announcement for users.

In response to feedback from users of the circle, we have decided to adopt a low-to-zero tolerance policy for carnist excuses and derailment. We've heard you all that you want a fully vegan space where you don't have to deal with that stuff.

The new rule on the sidebar is as follows:

No Promoting Carnism:

This circle is first and foremost for vegans and vegan discussion. We will not allow carnist rhetoric or justification for meat/dairy consumption, nor will we allow non-vegans to derail vegan discussions, whether these discussions focus on animals, health, environment, or other.

Non-vegans are welcome, but please keep omni content within the debate threads.

In an effort to engage both vegans and non-vegans, and to provide education to dispel common anti-vegan rhetoric, we've decided to have a weekly Debate Thread. Non-vegans are allowed to participate in these threads.

We will aim to choose differing topics each week, and we welcome further feedback or ideas for debate threads.

Thank you!

Hey, I'm not the mod who posted this, but to answer your question: of course vegans are welcome here as long as they follow the circle rules. If you are having trouble getting in contact with one of the mods, try sending a message to a different mod. That's why there are three of us, to cover times when one person might not be available.
