Thanks - you may find this old post interesting too.

I probably need to update that webpage a bit (along with the rest of my main site). Back when I first wrote it (in the pre-Google days), the only people who would bother looking at it were people who already knew me. I found that sometimes I'd get into conversations at parties, where I'd mention that I was vegetarian, and people would ask "Oh, is that a religious thing? Or just for ethical reasons?" etc. Since I try to avoid being militant, I figured that my website was a fairly discreet option: if people wanted to find out more about my reasons, then they could, but I wasn't forcing them to. (I have a similar attitude to my LJ in general - people who are interested in the minutiae of my life can stay up to date, but I'm not spamming all my friends with frequent emails if they're busy.) Nowadays, people may come across my website before they spend much time with me in person, so I don't know whether that skews the balance.
