This is the funniest joke yet. Matt made me a moderator. Does he have any idea of how many sites I’ve been thrown off?July 9, 2013 at 7:13 pm #8009
What’s the over-under for being thrown off here? 6 months? :-DJuly 9, 2013 at 7:41 pm #8020
Well @Rob, Matt has probably done something very smart here. By incorporating me into the system I am probably less likely to go rogue
- Lasted about 4 months on Paleohacks
- About 9 months on Walt Stoll’s Group
- I don’t know how long I lasted on Dr Adamo’s site Maybe 6 months
- Lasted about a week on the High Brow Paleo Facebook group, even though I was sort of reason it was created in the first place (a group of dissidents from Paleohacks
- I willingly left Ray Peat’s Facebook group under strange circumstances.
- Hell, I even got thrown off the Mad Magazine forum once.
There have been many, many more that I can’t even think of right now.

You can’t have been kicked off more sites than Matt has so you’re probably safe here.July 10, 2013 at 4:40 pm #8214
Why? How many sites has Matt been kicked off?July 11, 2013 at 5:44 pm #8421The Real AmyModerator
Not recently, but back a couple of years ago he would post on low-carb paleo sites, and people did NOT like what he had to say. There was all kinds of outrage that he was recommending carbs, and he got banned from a bunch of sites like Mark’s Daily Apple to name just one. He got called a douche a lot. But, he did get a lot of people’s attention because people on those sites who were having issues started checking out 180 and came over to the dark (carby) side.July 11, 2013 at 6:09 pm #8428
I think Free The Animal and Kurt Harris’ site, Archevore (formerly PaleoNu) too, and he’s tepidly welcome over at Jimmy Moore’s site.
That was how I found him too- he was campaigning and causing a ruckus in the paleo/LC world, and got attention. His good writing and rigorous thinking kept me here.July 12, 2013 at 7:57 am #8509RenaeParticipant
I found Matt via Cheeseslave and one of Sean Croxton’s summits. I was so deep in paleo doo-doo that I thought he was fucking nuts. But the more I realized how shitty I felt, the more curious I became, and now here I am. Melissa McEwen’s post about breaking up with paleo also helped.July 12, 2013 at 5:18 pm #8631Matt StoneKeymaster
This was the best post ever along those lines. http://www.dannyroddy.com/main/2010/7/14/i-used-to-think-matt-stone-was-a-douche-i-was-wrong.html
It’s normal to think I’m a douche at first. That’s what we tend to think of anyone who contradicts something we are convinced is truthful, inside information.July 12, 2013 at 7:57 pm #8659GazelleParticipant
Where’s the How I Found Matt thread? I want more heart-warming stories!July 12, 2013 at 9:28 pm #8679RenaeParticipant
Matt – That is a good post. I especially like that he includes this quote of yours: ?If you aren’t confused about health and nutrition, then you haven’t studied it long enough or deeply enough.
I totally thought I knew everything there was to know about nutrition. Paleo was it man. So I listened to what you had to say, and dismissed it outright. But the seed was planted (commence dirty jokes).
I want to mention also that I’m studying nutrition (currently work in finance – it’s not my gig), so I’m glad I found you now before I had the chance to give a bunch of people eating disorders.July 25, 2013 at 3:08 am #9989bixyParticipant
Hey, how would I go about setting a profile pic? All the cool kids are doing it!July 25, 2013 at 7:34 am #9994July 25, 2013 at 3:05 pm #10030DavidModerator
Any fun stories of people who have gotten kicked off 180?July 25, 2013 at 11:05 pm #10059bixyParticipant
Thanks Rob. I created a gravatar account, but no idea how to link it to my profile…
