Crossposted here: The disconnect between cooking tips and reality
Folks, there have been too many discussions lately that veer off-course to politics. While we don’t desire to be heavy handed and stop all discussions that have intersections between food and politics, this is a food forum first and foremost, so the focus should be on food. If the discussions head to a place where it has nothing to do with food any more, it will be stopped. And posts that intentionally take a discussion in a political direction will be looked at much more closely before, no matter the viewpoint- liberal, conservative, its irrelevant.
We are a team of volunteers with full time jobs that helps maintaining the site on the side. And hence, just like you, we have very limited available resources and time during the day. We are not able to spend a disproportional amount of time moderating political discussions, often hours at a time. Hence I ask for your understanding.
Since our site is small and close-knit enough, we look at ourselves more as hosts of a social gathering, and would like everyone to have a good time, and conducts any discussions civilly and respectfully.
Please note our site rules:
Excluded discussions – Please no discussions on the following topics: Policies, politics, racism, disability, religion, sexual orientation, discrimination.
