Thank you for this injection of sanity Kathy!
I disagree slightly with your definition - but I do know from my personal experience that diary products are exceedingly difficult to give up!
We had had no problems until this week - the posts / events had all been 100% animal friendly!
If Daniel will agree to not use the Group to promote his own dietary preferences then the Hong Kong Vegan MeetUp Group can continue to thrive!

Hey guys,

Not trying to interrupt but I think there's just some misunderstanding of what one may understand 'vegetarian' and 'vegan'.

Basically vegans are strict vegetarians, meaning not even one bit is from an animal, i.e. milk, eggs, etc... vegan is more like, let's say, a belief, but not all vegans are vegans because of the "cruelty" or whatever it may be that is done to the animals, some became vegans because that's how they believe that they should be for their body. Some even become raw vegans.

I don't think the Vegan meetup group have any intention to persuade anyone to not eat meat at all, and they actually understand that lots of the members are there to enjoy the food and would simply like to keep it 'clean' (no animal products/by-products) for their meetups.

What do you mean by "research data" & "negative conclusion" Adam?
If you offer milk products & eggs in a restaurant then you are involved in / responsible for abusing animals!
If you are really unaware of how dairy & eggs are produced Adam then I suggest that you 'Google' to find out.
Tips - consider what happens to male chicks & calves soon after they are born!

Please send your full research and data that brings you to the negative conclusion about "Life"

This is a serious charge you are making here!!
