If we were debating this in a college debating society, I would say 'fair point and well made', but in the real world, the findings are conclusive either way:
Despite of the bizarre weasel words of apologists, there is no escaping the fact that fluoride is a neurotoxin and is detrimental to human health, even in small doses.

I neither have the time nor wherewithal to repeat all of that again with cites it is there, and you can find it quicker and start researching quicker than I can.
Besides that we have a few posters rabidly defending something more than an average person would, which leads me to the conclusion of industry advocates.
As I said, I don't doubt you, I've done a bit of research myself and avoid and filter-out flouride myself.
As a point of presentation - this response will largely just gather you ridicule. There are rabid defenders of various "practises' that are IMO harmful to life. They will take a lack of support as being 'hearsay' or 'made up' while offering little or no support themselves. Some will and then, if YOU want to invest the time, will have your homework.
Don't let it stop you - but do start keeping links to your sources especially on subjects you feel powerfully about. Then your sources will be attacked. Just keep at it.
It's rather analogous to entering a new MMG (Massively Mult-Player Game), or so I hear, don't play them, where certain players, in order to build thier stature, attack the newbies coming in for the first time. It's a type of bullying.
Superman by all means if you believe Fluoride is so lovely go eat a bowl full of green kyptonite... what's the matter buddy? We are just doing research... don't feel so well do ya? well don't worry folks nothing to see here.

If this is about a choice and whether or not people should have a choice.
But that is beside the point if i don't want any flouride I dont have a choice, it's in many things and in many water supplies in varying amounts and degrees

Personally I would prefer to not be burdened with the cost of adding fluoride to the water I pay for and then also the burden and hastle to remove it if I don't need or want to drink it. The financial burden and hassle should be on those that need or want fluoride in their water.
If someone wants to consume fluoride, they should be able to buy a unit to sit on their counter and dispense it at point of use. Perhaps they could sell fluoride in pouches, like they do with Gatorade, so that you could add it to your bottled water.
It's assbackwards as it is now.

Got it. You want to complain about it because everyone else is, but deep down you don't really care, or care enough to do anything about it.
I'm fully aligned with one side? Which one? Reason? Science? Knowledge? Understanding? The only one I will never be fully aligned with is unjustified fear. Unjustified because the underlying reasons for the fear are faulty or untrue, easily discoverable with research.
