Lately I've seen some friction on the Board. We're all here to share about food. Please, I ask to be polite,, not "challenge" your fellow members, refrain from being nasty. Thanks for hearing me out;
Just My 2 Cents :)
@Cerise Thanks for some feedback. Moved this to the Feedback forum as these topics should not be posted in food centered threads. Your statement is rather broad so it is difficult to address specifically what you are talking about. It is very common in such large online communities that people often post in offensive or grating manners due to the anonymity of the internet. If you see specific issues help the moderator team out by clicking on the little red Flag icon at the bottom of each post. When you do you will be given an opportunity to tell the mods why your flagging it and they will investigate. It is one small thing all community members can do to help the mods keep ChefTalk fun and thriving.
To also add to what @Cerise is saying here is a link to our community guidelines:
