Bingo to Tony! :)
Chris, I'm not saying that you aren't entitled to make an informed
choice for _yourself_ about whether or not you should drink things
with sugar, sugar substitutes, caffeine, carbonation or otherwise.
What I am saying is:
"Drink and do as you wish, but don't impose your world viewpoint on
me, and certainly not by default."
What other people have said:
"If you don't want to drink XXX, stock a slot of the machine (assuming
one is empty and free) with your choice of drink to support NB, or
simply don't use the machine."
What we want you to hear:
"It's perfectly fine to stock a slot of the machine with juice, water,
or a soda as you wish, as long as you don't restrict the rest of us
from what we enjoy."
What you seem to be hearing:
"Fuck you. We hate your ideas, and don't want to hear about your
stinking 'natural' solutions, hippy."
What you are saying, and what you're saying sounds like to us:
"You are all wrong, my viewpoint is the only valid one, you must all
do as I do by default, because I'm right! I don't have to validate my
views to you, just do as I say."
