I understand that Heather sent you an e-mail this morning requesting that we not be on the home page anymore. This does not bother me, andthanks for honoring her request. We had discussed this, but had noidea she was going to ask.
I do have a question for you, however. Why did that request result in us not being able to access the site anymore? I can kind ofunderstand Heather since you gave her free membership in return forthe home page feature, but I did pay for my membership, and I don'tthink I did anything wrong.
It is true that Jeannie [Tippy Toes/Jeannie Baitinger] and I have started a new web site for peopleto join and get support who have no where else to go. We havehowever, not said anything derogatory about you or your site / woe.We are in fact not even trying to "compete." We were concerned that if legal problems succeed in closing your doors, we wanted a safeplace for you members to go. (and we both know that LCF is not a safeplace.)
I have remained, (until today when I could not log on) an active member of your forums, and have gained many friends there who I lookto for support and to help give support. I have not tried to take anymembers from your site, I have not tried to keep others from joiningyour site. In fact I still tell people that ask that I am followingthe KK diet.
I truly am sorry for your legal and personal struggles. I would notwish them on anyone. I am not a doctor nor a nutritionist, but I will be the first to admit that following a low fat low carb diet hashelped me to break my stall and continue to lose weight. I willcontinue to follow the basic tenants of your diet that I learned whilea member, until I lose another 70 lbs and reach my goal.
I know I have said in posts that I really don't care who you are orwhat you have, or have not, done. I don't think the diet isunhealthy, my doctor does not think the diet is unhealthy, and it works.
I think the campaign that LCF is on is ridiculous. Everyone isentitled to their own opinions, but America is a free market economyand if you want to, and can, make a buck that is your right.
All that being said I would like on of two things.
1.) reinstate my membership, so that I can continue to post o yourforums.
2.) please consider refunding my "lifetime" membership fee, since Iam still alive and have not broken any TOS, and I am still quite alive.
If you can not, or are unwilling to do either of the above, pleasehave the courtesy to make sure my private information (e-mail, familyweb site, AIM, and Skype info) is wiped from my user profile, andunsubscribe me from the threads I was subscribed too. The e-mails reminding me there is a new post are not needed if I can not get tothem.
PS I hope things work out for you"
I wish you, Heather and Jeannie the very best in your new endeavor.
