Robb, you know for a fact that the Kruse thing was festering long before the cruise fiasco. There is a long long thread in my inbox about Kruse’s mendacity that is three months before the cruise fiasco. But no one would publicly take a stand on him except a few rather minor hobbyist female bloggers like me until them. After not just Carbsane, but me and Emily Deans were dragged through the mud by him and his cronies and it became a full-scale police incident, you gave a statement on Paleohacks that was rather half-hearted to be honest. I still think you somehow thought we were behind it. It was the thing that forced me to realize that people don’t really care about science in the paleo community, they will only take a stand if their reputation is at stake.
Now that it’s a war between you and Carbsane you won’t take that because you think people will interpret you not going on the cruise to letting her win or something. You are willing to spend less time with your family and wade into the sunk cost fallacy on that account. It’s too bad. I honestly do believe you care about the core of the paleo principles that help people and I was happy to see you take a stand for evolutionary medicine in this post, but then you are going on a cruise run by the man who has essentially eviscerated paleo of that very thing. Read your last blog posts and think about whether they are congruent at all with what Jimmy promotes, which is lately a borderline-eating disorder (https://www.facebook.com/LLVLC/posts/504832729573313). I think you know this really and that is why you are so sensitive to Carbsane’s quips.
