I am in complete agreement with your post. My first post to Lauray was not out of malice but out of concern and caring. Anyone who has read her posts and knows anything about fasting has good reason to be concerned. I think what she is doing is very dangerous to her health and we would be remiss if we didn't tell her that. She fasts for several hours then eats 600 calories then binges, then fasts more hours and I haven't been able to find in any of her posts where she refeeds after fasting. What must her poor system be going through? Yes, it is a destructive cycle that has been going on for almost 2 years.
I have come to the conclusion that she doesn't want to hear the truth, she doesn't want support she just wants to journal her life in the water fasting forum and she doesn't want any of us to comment on her self-destruction.
"If people want to criticize those on this forum who have a good head on their shoulders, then so be it. Just remember that if you silence the ones giving good advice, all that's left is a bunch of ignorance."
I think you're parting remark is right on the money, when we see someone harming themselves we shouldn't condone it, but the more we are criticized for being truthful the less likely we are to post anymore because we will get tired of being criticized, then newcomers are left not knowing that what she is doing is wrong unless they read through old posts, they will think what she's doing is ok. It's not ok!
