Troll: veganism is nice, but in Atkins communities?

I was stunned (like a blow to the head) when I saw a post in atkins_recipes from nooneatall, who's apparently on a vegan recruiting drive:

hello. I am a vegan. your probably wondering why I would join this community. well I joined to let you know that their is a much healthier diet out there, my diet... the vegan diet, if done properly with the right exercise the pounds with just disappear and it will stay that way because with the vegan diet you have so much incentive because you don't just do it for yourself. and it makes you feel great about yourself, it really does. for more information you can comment on here or you can go to:

http://veganoutreach.com/
trust me it's worth simply checking out.

I replied:
How does this relate to Atkins-friendly recipes? The community information clearly states:
"This is a community for sharing low-carb recipes" and "This is not the place to post your disagreement with the idea of the Atkins diet in general. This is a support community for dieters to share recipes and kitchen tips."

Also, you're grammar could use some improvement their. *clears throat*
In further comments she went on about how terrible eating meat is and that she just wants to educate people to the "better way" so they aren't close-minded and selfish meat-eaters.

After seeing her replies to comments at atkins_recipes, I got suspicious. Turns out she'd posted the same thing, typos and all, to atkins_daily, atkins_diet and atkinsaustralia. While I respect veganism and vegetarianism, this kid's approach makes me want to slap her with bacon (with apologies to tinder, whose bacon-slapping was meaningful).

EDIT: I've already gotten two comments from people pointing out I misused "you're" and "their" in that reply. I should save my wit for the people who appreciate it.
