But what if you wanted to know which was the best cat for you - persians or siamese?
Then I would suggest going to www.cats.com
to research both breeds at one site or I'd suggest going to www.persians.com
to research persians and www.siamese.com
to research the siameses cats. I would never advise someone to go to www.siamese.com
to research persian cats.
That said I'm a very firm believer that there should be forums for those that converted to different WLS' after the band on this site. I don't think losing the band should get you kicked off the site any more than I think that people considering RNY, the Sleeve or DS should come to a site titled Lapbandtalk looking for any non-biased advice or research on those surgeries.
My opinion has nothing to do with any lack of respect for the other surgeries. Its just like your analogy, If you are looking for info on two different breeds of cats. The only benefit for looking up info on one breed at the other breeds site would be specifically to look for the negative hype out there and then to take it with MANY grains of salt.
