Im not sure if your being sarcastic or if your also ignorant but there are stupid people that pasken from others opinions online.

I'm "ignorant."  And I think I'm right, and I do what I'm advocating. 

Strawberries aren't like brussel sprouts that you can convince me there's something hiding behind the crevice where I can't see it.  There's no crevice.

So this is your own conclusion, correct?

they most definitely do. As soon as I figure out how to compress my video, I'll upload a video I took of a thrip appearing from behind a seed

Nothing wrong with eating a half of a bug.

Just puree it
This is simply ignorant. It is just as assur to eat a half a bug as it is to eat an entire bug. The difference between them is only that there is malkos for an entire bug no matter the size while if it is not complete it will need to be a kezayis to be chayav malkos.

What you may be confusing is that an incomplete bug can sometimes be batel. That would not allow one to intentionally cut the bug for it to be batel. Also, it is not certain that pureeing the fruit will also cut the bug. What you may have heard in this regard is that one may puree and then rely on a sfek sfeka that maybe there was no bug and even if there is maybe it is cut up. There are times when one may even do this lichatchila but it is certainly not as simple as you are making it.

I happen to agree that there should be some notification or something regarding certain produce items
But to make the jump that the agencies certifying these stores know nothing and we shouldn't eat their meat is ridiculous
There is an agency certifying their produce?

Ok, but then you should need to peel it, and most hashgachos are saying you don't need to.

If there is access for the bug, who's to say that soap and water doesn't clean these crevices also?
Maybe bugs run out in water or something..

problem is all video sharing sites are blocked by me. So I need an app to compress the video (I think it will still be too large- even my screen shots are too large to upload to ddf)

If I could download the video I took with my eyes you would see the thrip scurrying around inside the central crevice of the strawberry I opened.  I now understand why handsdown, every strawberry should be cut down the center (which is recommended).

Likely got in there after you already cut it open.

I rarely see live bugs, but recently I saw a live thrip on a filter cloth after 3 washings . How it survived is beyond me. I also saw a live thrip on fennel under the first layer but that was pre wash.

For sure not!  I cut one and check immediately.  No point otherwise. It would have had to crawl over the cut red flesh first.  Would have seen it.  BTW, this was after soaking them in soap first (before peeling days).

3 washings of strawberries, or are you referring to something else?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
