Reply to comment by ekeet in [i ate] vegetarian ramen by rayesben

My point was that you have to be a special kind of person to be a vegan. It's not easy.

A sane vegan wouldn't suggest that being a vegetarian is pointless though. That is like saying "Why take public transit rather than drive your own vehicle? You are still polluting." Being a vegetarian definitely reduces suffering and environmental impact of our food sources. Thanks for proving my point. Vegans wonder why they are ridiculed.

I would say marketing is #1. I can't imagine that they didn't change the number and then plaster the new one everywhere. Was the old number not anonymous as well though? Stigma reduction absolutely has had an impact and I am glad it's changing.
