    15th! That's the quickest off the mark I've ever been. Don't know why I'm
    still up at 2 in the morning, though.

    There s a difference between the recipes posted in mass without any sort
    of narrative, and the recipes posted by regulars who can vouch for them.

    The survey didn't distinguish between them so I vote here with:
    Nay on the former. Yeah on the later.

    Okaaaay. But I thought I had that covered with the "depends who posted
    the recipes" in the first question, and the "only if the poster has
    tried and can vouch for it" in the second one.

    Obviously not. Damn.

    I agree, people who just post recipes for no apparent reason and with no
    comment or narrative are a waste of time and bandwidth as well.

    This is not a cut and paste training site.

    I'm a MCINL on buying anything special due to recipes posted here, but only
    because I rarely get recipes from here. I tend to post more of them than
    the average person.

    I mostly use Fidonet for my real recipe gleaning and will often get a new
    ingredient based on a recipe there, or if i have one, ask and get good ideas
    back.

    Fidonet for those not familiar with it, is another system not related to
    newsgroups nor is it a web group. Kinda predates both and been playing on
    Fidonet since about 1987 or so.

    So, I should cease and desist? I thought the recipes were
    interesting for one reason or another. And I have been typing
    them in, not cutting and pasting.

    Oh well. If more people find them annoying rather than
    interesting, I will stop.

    i was sorta thinking that. not even only clusters of recipes, but just one
    starkly standing on its own seems a little odd.

    but if that's what some people want to do, i won't bitch (too much).

    I tend to ignore recipes posted without relevance or comment but I
    expect recipes in r.f.c to have been tested. That's one of the reasons I
    don't look at the moderated rec.food.recipes since the group is
    frequented by people who think it a service to post dozens of untested
    transcribed recipes. The moderation prevents me from posting criticism
    in that group.

    Some time back there was someone who came in here and started posting
    dozens and dozens of unsolicited recipes. I objected but others defended
    him. It was easy enough to deal with. I just filtered him. I am sure
    that if he posted something worthwhile it would show up in a response.

    You are cordially invited to do what you want.

    I believe one could cook 3 recipes a day from the day of their birth until
    they die and never run out of recipes that are available on the web.

    When SOAR started there were over 80 thousand recipes
    http://www.recipesource.com/ (New Soar). If you google the word recipe the
    "Results 1 - 10 of about 205,000,000 for recipes [definition]. (0.05
    seconds)"

    If someone just posts a recipe with little information surrounding the
    recipe for me its a so what.

    If you find a recipe interesting tell me/us why, and if you have tried it
    and how it came out and why you find it interesting. There are some
    SENSATIONAL cooks here with an astounding degree of knowledge and talent.
    There is not a day thet goes by that I read RFC and learn something new.

    So like I said do what you want.

    I didn't read rfc yesterday or much the day before so I couldn't figure out
    what the "problem" was. Hey, I like that you got a bunch of old cooking
    magazines and are sharing interesting recipes from them! Don't stop on my
    account (And no, I don't think you're that Frannie loser.)

    Naw Jean, I think he means the occasional drive by person who does it with
    no relation to any post. I've posted plenty. In fact, you and I may be
    some of the more prolific recipe posters here?

    Last time I posted several while we were in chat because I mentioned them in
    there and people asked for them, so added them to a chat line and annotated,
    'based on request in chat'. Other times, I've added up to 10 or so based on
    a specific thread asking for something (I think last time, was diabetic
    acceptable recipes for one who liked to cook with a little Asian flair and
    wasnt sure how to adapt so they had special comments all through them on
    where to adapt the base recipe).

    In fact, mini rant on that one! Some goober came back and said I was
    terrible for not editing the whole recipe to render it 'DBA' and instead
    inserting the shifts in a MM format as comments! I did it that way
    specifically for 2 reasons.
    1- The person wanted to know 'how to adapt it to Diabetic Acceptable (DBA)'
    so needed to see the full version to get the idea (new diabetic).
    2- others who were not diabetic, may have wanted the full version so they
    had it as well as an idea of how to edit it if a friend with diabetes ever
    came over.

    All in MM format so they could save it easily to their own database if they
    wished.
