So in my usual (but less frequent nowadays) perusing of the recipe side last week I came across a recipe from a new user that required some corrections. Now mind you, there are 2 possible responses I usually get when prompting someone to please fix their flavor names. 3 if you count no response as a response.
-The first being an agreeable response, a quickie lesson on flavor naming conventions and the correction(s) are made. Right-on bro [fist pound]!
-The second, and much more common response in this age of defiance and non-conformity, is the user telling me to f**k off, pound sand, get a life etc. And some are even laughable. Hey no problem. You’ve just made my ‘hunt-you-down-and-force-the-correction-at-gunpoint’ list.
But this most recent ‘interaction’, and I’m not sure why, struck a nerve. A second user, also fairly new with no visible recipes to be found, decides to chime in with his own comment.
On to the point of this topic…
His comment was “What’s the difference? ELR is just a testing ground for recipes anyway. Who cares?”
Really? A testing ground. A fucking testing ground?
Luckily I had a chance to respond before the entire recipe along with comments was either hidden or deleted.
“Is All The Flavors, Reddit DIY, Vaping Underground or ECF also testing grounds? Who cares? A lot of people care so maybe some attitude adjustment is in order!”
And poof they were gone.
You see I translate that as saying “let’s go dump our untested, shitty recipes over at ELR. Everyone else does it!”
Do you consider ELR a testing ground for recipes? Why? What is it about this site that some people think is different from other recipe sites?
Inquiring minds want to know.
