Yes, I know I was boycotting your forum for a while, because I felt your manner of addressing your dissenters was at times overly aggressive and moralistic, but at the same time observing the staunchness with which you stand up for your convictions, I find that you have the unique ability to both confound me and to command my respect. Therefore, I'd like to give things a new start, and have a couple of questions about vegetarianism, which I would be curious to try a little more earnestly.

1. If humans opt not to participate in the food chain, how do we prevent animal populations from overpopulating and being subjected to even greater suffering, through starvation, disease, and overcrowding? I have a difficult time weighing the comparative morality of killing something humanely (read: without suffering) for food, with allowing an animal population to breed out of control, threatening both itself and other species. Birth control doesn't seem feasible, given the daunting task of catching and "fixing" wild animals all over the planet. Naturally, by the same token, I find the prevailing methods of animal farming to be unquestionably barbaric.

2. How do you compensate for the lack of meat proteins and other meat-based nutrients in your diet?

I ask these questions because I am considering attempting a vegetarian diet, though I may continue eating fish. After I saw this website, I was just too disgusted for words...I'd be curious to hear your thoughts!
