Chowhiound by way of gardenweb- kitchens and appliances, Spent election times on political forums. Read egullet for years but never joined. Joined Chowhound, mainly Cookware, but read regional S.F. boards occasionally. For 6 months I was recovering from a surgery so I spent a lot of time on CH Cookware and buying copper pans- more out of curiosity and to have packages arrive from France!. I think my 3td post was removed with a warning.Concerning toaster ovens of all things. After that they would just disappear without a word from the moderator-. I didn’t really care, but felt that sometimes- you need some heat to get some light on the matter.
Kaleo started a topic about Teflon with a link to a great article. I wrote that those corporate thugs should be treated like any other criminal and taxed to oblivion. The entire thread was pulled and I felt bad because important information as well as attitudes and how people felt just disappeared. I read the feedback about the new format but did not participate. The community was falling apart. For me it wasn’t how inane it was, but that it also lacked personality. I still post.
I’m working more now and riding my bike again, so my time is split- I’m curious how this will turn out, how intelligent it may be. Or how loopy.
My taste is changing, So I don’t know yet.
