4) Accusations of Spam for posts, once or twice a month, on topic, and usually in response to a flame post are unfair
Are you here to participate in this forum (in which case it is a good idea to post an intro thread and actually participate), or do you see this forum as a handy means by which you can promote a product that you make money from?
If it the former, fair enough, post an intro, join in fully and this unpleasantness will pass. Having the good grace to apologise for annoying quite a few people would also earn you kudos points.
I would personally appreciate it if you'd apologise for using the word "autistic" as an insult, and explain what you mean by "fruitloops", though I've a feeling that you're not going to.
I work with people with learning difficulties and mental health issues
If you've been a campaigner for 20 years, then brilliant. Maybe you could share your experiences about loads of stuff via this forum and be an active participant? It's be a lot more use than casting insults at us.

I've been a member since 2006. I posted on this thread because someone called an innovative ethical company I admire and respect - 'Fucking Bastards' and was spuriously suggesting omega zen was a superior product

If by 'us' you mean the Vegan Fitness Forum community, that's an assumption, incorrect and unfair on fellow members for whom I have the greatest admiration
If by 'us' you mean you identify with the elitist clique who are witlessly determined to thwart the spread of worldwide veganism by arguing amongst themselves about half empty glasses then I'm sorry you feel that way
That last vegan boat left when the vegan society decided to allow 'may contain milk' alongside the ('maybe') Vegan Trademark. Journalists now ubiquitously use the word vegan when once they didn't dare.
Meanwhile for vegan wannabe superheroes there is Vegan Omega 3 DHA and EPA essential fatty acids
Years ago vPure/nuique was the only vegan source of EPA. I was grateful for that offering and out of that gratitude I started this thread to announce their name change so people could find them.
To be fair, I mentioned that I have since moved on to their competitors, since given my location in the U.S., I was getting a better deal elsewhere.
Another person called nuique, "Fucking Bastards" as you claim, so you will have to take that up with someone else. I do stick by my claim that I can get what nuique offers cheaper elsewhere.
Since you are apologizing to Hiking Fox for using the word "autistic" in a pejorative context, perhaps you will apologize to me for writing that I am making spurious statements.
Here goes my breakdown, as a shopper from the United States.
Nuique offers a "buy 2 get 1 free" deal. Since they have done so ever since I bought from them my comparisons are based on what you pay and you get for 3 bottles. Results of my shopping trip are listed in ascending order by price. foodsforlife previously mentioned differences in quality to account for price differences. foodsforlife may care to reiterate those quality differences here and let people decide for themselves if those differences are worth the higher price
