The current Not About Food board parameters read thusly:
“Discussions unrelated to food. Per forum rules, please no discussions on policies, politics, racism, disability, religion, sexual orientation, discrimination. Discussions on these topics require a large amount of moderation resources that the site do not have.”
IMO, this needs clarification and narrowing. On Chowhound, NAF is for topics like etiquette, tipping, ambiance, and other subjects that while not strictly about food, ARE tangentially related to food/dining. My feeling is that HO should have the same boundaries. I don’t expect a food-related website to discuss cars, TV shows/movies (which aren’t about food), or deceased celebrities. Does anyone really need another place to “dish” about pop culture?
