One of the points that everyone seems to agree that we should work on for the community guidelines are definitions of the different types of vegetarianism, as well as a definition for vegan.

I have included my own in the comments. Other comments, clarifications or definitions are welcome. :)

Defining vegetarian and vegan in the positive...

I also though that this article on focusing on the positive (what we do eat, for example, not what we don't) is very interesting.

Other than the use of "veg*n" (this blog post spells out my distaste for that particular term), I think the article has some very good points to make, and we should keep them in mind.

Perhaps we should include Cde Vincent's post (or a summation with a link) as one of the reasons why we discourage people from using the word "veg*n" in with the community guidelines?

As far as the list of contentious issues... I would like to add "moral relitivism" to the queue.

I don't have time tonight, but tomorrow I am going to start compiling these over at the mod community: very_veg_mod (I will also actually set up that community...).

I think that you are right -- moral relativism really is going to be the root source of much of the disagreement!

I really like Vincent's style of writing.

He has a cookbook coming out soon as well, which is totally on my "to buy" list: New American Vegan.
