If they don't buy in ...
Why did he email me?
Why did he answer my emails?
Why did he invite me to his LinkedIn?
If paleo is so popular and there are so many people wanting help, why are seemingly ALL of these people so defensive about a little criticism? Really, now. It is a sign that the underpinning science is not-so solid and pointing that out threatens the franchise. I haven't even criticized this guy much here at the Asylum and I challenge Robb to back up his ridiculous claims that I've been bugging him incessantly about the LC Cruise since long before the KKK David Duke thing.
"... that's why I'm doing Jimmy's silly ass cruise, BC it's a group of people who could teeter either way, and I'm going to do my best to help them understand the nuances necessary to make this stuff work for them. "
"It'd be a god-send if Jimmy cancelled the thing and it did not fall on me to make a decision."
What, and get lost in the 48,000 unread emails? I wouldn't want to keep him from helping people. Here's the deal folks. Robb and I were in contact after Krusegate and at his initiation, following his appearance on ATLCX. I'm not about to take my time to try to convince Robb one way or the other about something that doesn't concern me. I did reach out to him after the David Duke fiasco ... and this is the thanks I get -- having our relationship, such as it was, grossly misrepresented by Robb as a means to curry favor from his following and paint me as a stalker. After it became clear to me that Robb had no intention of backing out of the LC Cruise, I dropped it. I was obviously not changing his mind, he decided not to take my advice and set the record straight on his blog, and he never asked me to do so here when questions were asked or comments made.
This is a truly strange comment. LCC 2014? Is that a typo, or has Robb already written off 2013. It seems odd to me that Robb hasn't had a little "join me on the Low Carb Cruise" thing on his website all along. He doesn't advertise any of his appearances on his website, which is sort of odd for someone on a mission to help people. Wouldn't it be helpful to have those people come out and see you? In past years there has always been room on the LC Cruise almost up until the end, so it's really not too late to save this year's cruise. But in addition, why would he only spare NO EXPENSE if critics of his appearance on the cruise continue to push the issue? It's all about helping people, right?
