Please don't do that! This forum is the place to discuss tortoise husbandry. These debates are part of what makes the forum so good. Bringing new ideas to the table and/or identifying myths or outdated caring techniques is important.
Perhaps we can just switch it to the debate section of the forum?

Of course, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that lists 1 and 2 are EXCELLENT staples for a sulcata's diet. It's the rest of the document that leaves a lot to be desired!
True. In fact, I'd like to see the OP taken down by the moderators because it's going to come up in any search and look like a legitimate and official sulcata care sheet.
Should we censor things we do not agree with? Would following this diet cause harm? While there are errors, I think the basic approach to diet is fine.
If someone searches for "sulcata diet", that page comes up first. By having it here, at least there is discussion about its merits.
