Yeah not a big deal on Irish moss or other finings... It's the additives and lack of purity that grabs me.

Here's Maureen Ogle's rebuttal that was posted last time: http://www.maureenogle.com/maureen-ogle/2013/08/18/whats-in-your-beer-or-the-dangers-of-dumbassery

I guess at the end of the day, I just like knowing what's in my beer- and happy to be completely accountable for it.

At the very least this post gives us another chance to come up with some more beaver anal gland jokes.

Yes, I was wondering what set of circumstances lead to "hey, is it just me or does this taste like vanilla?"

I'm afraid you've fallen victim to Vani Hari, the infamous "Food Babe".  She makes totally unsupported, unscientific claimns as a way of gaining fame and fortune.  There's plenty about her out there, but here a a couple things to read...
