New KK PR Director and Forum Gestapo TippyToes, aka Jeannie Baitinger, is trying to organize a boycott of Netrition.com. Netrition is an online marketplace specializing in health foods with an incredible selection of sugar-free, low-carb products. (Heck, they even offer flat rate shipping!)
LCF - the Low Carb Friends free public forum is owned by the same person that owns Netrition. (That may be news to some!)
TippyToes was recently banned from LCF after sending this threatening email to one of LCF's admins:

Subject: if it walk like a duck
To: melly L_Name
We know you have a part in ducky. Suggesting you pull the blog or the next thing you will see is Melly Exposed.
She did deny it at first, but in a later post, she admitted that she did indeed send that email.
Yesterday I tried to log in and I am banned although I have not posted. I am banned for sending a private email to one of the Ducky teammates. You have all probably seen it by now as posted in The Suppossed truth. I told her she needed to pull the Ducky blog or the next blog would be (her name) Exposed. I assume this is why I am banned.
As a result of being banned from LCF for threatening (blackmailing?) one of their admins, she is now calling for the low-carb community to boycott the Netrition website. Her plan seems to have backfired and many LCF forum users are placing new orders with Netrition as we type this.
Many have expressed their frustration with LCF over the heavy-handed moderation that often occurs there, TippyToes herself recently expressed her dislike of their moderation policies yet defends Heidi's banning of PAID members simply because they disagree with the Kimkins plan.
Yet, even those who post at the LCF forum that they dislike the moderators, admins and policies of that website are not banned.
Others have also expressed frustration that LCF keeps the Kimkins and Kimmer threads available on the site, giving their tacit support of the dangerous plan. All of the Kimkins / Kimmer threads have been moved to the "Other Plans" section of the board to remove them from the main menu at least, and as of right now, the "Ask Kimmer" thread and other historical threads need to be maintained for research and investigations.
I do hope that once this is all over, that LCF will consider removing any and all Kimkins / Kimmer threads from their boards completely - and I do believe that will happen, but now is not the time. Patience, friends. :)
