i couldn't disagree with you more on these topics, cerise.
i think members should post recipes in whatever form or standard that they like. it's up to the person who reads and wishes to replicate the recipe to make any necessary conversions. if a term used is slang or not very obvious as to the weight, volume, or amount, then it's again up to the reader to ask for a definition that they would understand. it's called discuss
cooking for a reason.
asking everyone to include measurements understood in the u.s. is sort of rude in a way to all of the folks not from the u.s..
it might have been better stated that you wish that all recipes are posted in avoirdupois/imperial as well as metric to be fair to everyone.
and as far as curtailing slang, colloquialisms, quintessentials
, and inside jokes, well, not all threads are for everyone of which to be a part. it's a big community with lots of different friendships and an occasional lack thereof, so you can't be in the middle of everything.
just my 2 centavos.
