Threads that start with the declaration "fill in the blank" is NOT gluton free, with no more justification than "it had to be because everything else I ate yesterday was safe". And the product clearly contains no gluten ingredients.
Another one. "The person on the phone wouldn't confirm it was gluten-free". So it must have gluten, right?

Tied in with that is another of my pet peeves - the assumption that every single time someone feels weird, they must have gotten into gluten. It can't be a virus, another intolerance, food poisoning, or simply a bad day.
I have a bigger pet peeve though that drove me off the board once in frustration. It probably will again eventually. There is a collective refusal to accept new ideas about celiac disease and gluten intolerance, to the point of persecuting people who suggest something new or different. There are people on the board who think they know a lot more than the real experts who are publishing peer-reviewed research, but they generally don't. It gets quite tedious and frustrating, coping with the "board think."
