OK, put Sawse on my "Ignore" list. Name misspelled-should be "Sows"-no, that's an insult to our sweet little porcine friends. MYBAD:blush:
What a bully-barges in making bold statements with little to back it up but a few polls generated by the subject themselves and then gets all defensive if someone takes issue with it. Then starts calling everyone the equivalent of ignorant. Sheesh! Aren't there enough of these types driving on our highways to last us all a lifetime?
I also agree, the plug for ATK was thinly veiled promotion, especially with all the quotes from the mission statement. Maybe not, but seems fishy.
Phatch, I'm with you, man. ATK can be good, but the mag picks up too many of their old stories. Some recipes really are good, but frankly, those Yankees really wouldn't know a decent biscuit from a hole in the ground.
This actually brings up something I've been stewing on for a while and I wondered what other valued members of this forum thought.
A few days ago, someone started posting a few recipes that promote some product that they obviously sell and also, without even reading the previous posts of a thread, jumped in and asserted something like " frozen won't be any good, fresh is always best" to which the thread originator gave a proverbial bronx cheer. I PMed the poster and asserted that his/her blatant self promotion without even an introduction in the Welcome Forum showed the kind of manners one would use in crashing a party. Haven't seen posts from them since.
Which brings me to my question, what's the best way to address these nincompoops? I figured a PM was the best way to not embarrass them in front of the whole crowd. But then, maybe a public comment as in this thread lets the group set the standard of behavior.
Unfortunately, now I kind of feel like a bully, eventhough I believe my comments to be justified.
What do all of you think?
