I don't eat red meat anymore, but when I did, I always ate it well done, and if you know anything about steak, it's like a mortal sin to ask for red meat to be cooked well done. I just always felt like, it's my steak. You're cooking it for me and my taste buds and for what I like, what's it to you whether it's bloody or cooked all the way through? If I enjoy it the way I like it cooked, then that IS the point rather then just trying to like some bloody rare meat because that's the way it 'should' be done.

There is some hatred for well done because you cook out all the flavors and make it dry. People who usually order well done end up drowning their steak in steak sauce. Well done is general considered safe because it's completely cooked. What people fail to see is that you can it fresh red meat and not have to worry about getting sick. There is the exception if you eat fresh meat from a diseased animal or from who living in unhygienic conditions. The people that says eating a steak with blood is gross, well I have news for you, your steak is brown because that is what happens to blood when you cook it. So you are still eating blood just a different form of it.
I only advocate eating a steak well done if you are eating from a shady establishment who's food handling practices are questionable. But I would never eat at a questionable establishment.
