The Animal rights activist showed she didn't truly believe what she was promoting, at the dinner she hosted to support her cause. How?

*spoiler*

She was advocating that humans should never consume any part of an animal, but served a gelatin dessert to her guests at the Animal Rights Dinner

Huh? What is the purpose of spoiling your own puzzle?

Qwike has been quite upset about everyone (family and friends) ignoring his birthday, when all were aware he was too sick to go out and do anything for it. - no cards/text messages etc

But he had an idea to get over it - turn the bad situation into a puzzle, so then instead of being miserable every time the subject of birthdays came up, he could think how he turned his bad situation into a fun game. Then he'd have something to smile about.

So he posted "A bit younger" expecting a fun, interesting game to result. But the first post in it was basically telling him he shouldn't have posted the puzzle - and for two mistaken reasons at that (number of puzzles, and not answering questions on a puzzle he was asked not to do so). Thereby giving even more reason for the birthday situation to be upsetting than he already had. Considering how upsetting the birthday situation was in the first place, and how he posted that puzzle solely to get something positive out of it, having the first post be criticism for posting it was more than he could take at the time (other extenuating factors too of course). He left the forum, but ended his puzzles before leaving so there'd be no loose ends
