I belonged to a message board for a former hobby of mine (I used to have many, many hobbies). However, once I became a father, I had to pare down my hobbies. Since cooking was so fun for me, and I have to eat anyway, I stuck with cooking as my main hobby.

I enjoy the community atmosphere of a well run forum, so I decided to find one for cooking. I literally entered "discuss cooking forum" into google, and this site popped up. I lurked for a few days, decided I liked how it felt, and decided to join.

Let's admit it. We're all here for the money!

Just curious----if anyone can fill us in------why did the food network fold? Sounds like a lot of you were on it. If you're busy or think this question belongs on another thread, I understand. But if someone could just give a short answer, I'd be appreciative. Never been on a site that folded---not yet, at least. :)

As happens with many sites, things got nasty. People were always on the attack. They closed down the site.

Wow---I guess the threat of a trip to Marge's woodshed keeps things on the straight and narrow path here which is great---I've left a few sites myself for the same reason. Just plain mean-spirited people. Thanks, Andy M. for an honest answer. Glad that we've all found DC....:)

Send a message via MSN to kitchenelf
I've been here 5 years!

The original owner (she lived in England and was either becoming a lawyer or doctor, I can't remember now) left a link at some forum I used to frequent (can't remember the name of it now). I checked it out and I'm still here - well, after 1 hiatus that is. I was the 17th member here and have watched this place grow with leaps and bounds! Some challenging leaps but in the end all good! I've watched it change hands and I can say since Andy R has owned it he has done nothing but GREAT stuff for our community. He never stops trying to improve this place and for that I am always grateful!!!!
