    Default My Celebration comes to an end...

    My Birthday Week Celebration concludes with a visit to a great dining
    experience. I had not been here before, but it will be a "not miss"
    restaurant in the future!

    Bon Appetit!

    You just said you've never been there before yet you somehow felt
    compelled to review it here just 4 weeks ago:

    <http://groups.google.com/group/rec.food.cooking/msg/563117848bcc32f9?hl=en&dmode=source>

    That's kinda odd, eh Bill? At least now we know you get your get
    posts from the same source as Sheldon: You make it up.

    That's a little extreme. But hopefully you've learned your lesson,
    Steve (and hopefully I have, also): If you ask people for their
    *opinions* about a restaurant, rather than their *experience*, you may
    get opinions based on second hand knowledge. Although I sometimes pass
    on information that I've heard, I generally mention that fact.

    Sorry Dan, that don't fly. Maybe you look up to Bill or something
    else that makes you say this, but Bill was clearly blowing smoke up
    our asses with that post by implying that he had eaten there. You
    don't call food "wonderful" and give it 4 other compliments just based
    on stuff you've 'heard'. That is not the MO of an honest person.
    I've learned this lesson before and I'd be stupid to ignore it now.

    Finally...someone with a little common sense. Yes...that was MY
    opinion about a restaurant a month ago. My experience was enjoyed
    last evening and my personal comments were noted.

    Moral of the story...don't assume. That is something gentle friends

    I call bull****. Dan just gave you a convenient Out. You were
    clearly misleading people by representing that you had dined there
    before. And I would put money on the fact that all other unbiased
    readers would assume that by your post as well.

    You were caught lying your ass off, Bill. "Gentle Friends" my ass.
    Nobody here posts like that unless they're just plain fakes.

    And just like you, he really has nothing to say so he just posts
    whatever comes into his head, truthful or not, so he can spam his web
    site. Just like you, Stew.

    Stu, Bill posts about food he has cooked and eaten (with pics), and has
    reviewed a restaurant he went to.

    Last time I looked, your site was basically a recipe archive.

    Try putting up pics of food you have personally prepared and eaten, like
    Koko and Bill.

    Then you probably won't cop so much grief.

    Maybe I don't do that. Maybe you don't either. But lots of people do.
    And if I have a 100% solid source, and no time to discuss, I might just
    pass on what I heard with no detailed explanation.

    > I've learned this lesson before and I'd be stupid to ignore it now.


    I'm glad that you've already learned your lesson. I need reminders
    sometimes.

    Still, there's a *big* difference between someone neglecting to
    attribute the opinions that they passed on, and someone just making
    stuff up.

    Who does that? Point them out so I know they're full of ****, too.
    When people post asking for opinions on restaurants, they expect to
    hear firsthand accounts from people ho have been there and have
    actually eaten the food.

    If I wanted second and third-hand reports, I would ask people to post
    sites that review that particular restaurant.

    No reason to get snarky. You know damn well that in all our years of
    ba.food and other food groups, that nobody posts second-hand info
    unless they specifically say so. And even then, they don't describe
    the food as first-hand "wonderful".

    Sorry, I didn't mean to sound snarky. I've made mistakes in the past,
    and I've known well-meaning folks to make mistakes.

    I'm grasping for a phrase here, but it isn't coming to me. I tend to
    take people at face value, at least for awhile, and to look at the rosy
    side.

    No, you've only just recently come out of my killfile.

    I'm just going on what you were doing before you went in.

    And be nice, or you'll go back in again.
