Just my opinion.
I agree, but find it best to just not say anything at all then find a post that is perfect for my taste and make a coment to the OP about how I like the idea

To me, it was nasty! DH thought it was wonderful. The next one, DH stated it was delish, and told me I would like it much better than the first sample salmon. OMG. Pthw. Spit spit. It was worse, at least to me! We ate out of the same sample cup. Obviously, our salmon taste buds differ, as do our Brussels sprouts and liver buds, as DH loves both of those too! And I don't.
There are two places Shrek will eat liver...at home and a local diner. That's it, everywhere else it yucky, even the liver his Mother made. He never liked it until I made it the first time.

Shrek has also decided he despises brussels sprouts...no problem, now i don;t have to buy them

i can see both sides of the argument, but i fall into the freedom to express one's opinion side. the problem is deciding when it's rude. that can be a perspective thing.

i once posted that i thought a recipe that someone was going to try (not her own recipe, but one she found online and hadn't tried yet) was disgusting imo for a few reasons, and it got edited because i wasn't supposed to say "disgusting".

once bitten, twice shy might eventually make people not want to post their opinion at all in any case.

fortunately, i'm not shy.

I agree with Andy M. If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all. (Courtesy of Thumper from Bambi.) Everyone is entitled to have an opinion but don't be mean and hurt someones feelings if you don't have to!!

my point was that there are grey areas, and there is also a person's perspective on what is simple disagreement and what is simply rude, or both.

the person i mentioned was going to try something new to them, and i thought that the shortcut they were going to use would ruin the dish.

i was stating an opinion from experience, and it was taken as offensive.

was that rude? it wasn't intended as such, but some people take offense very easily.

what's the point of discussing things if it can only be about sunshine and daisies?

unless you're just growing daisies, lol

I do understand. There are grey areas. It is very difficult sometimes. I know your intentions were good and you didn't mean to be offensive :)

This is a sensitive topic but in my opinion it depends on the situation.

I would never say something is gross or disgusting if I don't know the person posting but on the other hand I will mention my dislike of an ingredient if the person posting is a friend.
Like for example my complete dislike of chicken lol! I often comment on Kades, Kylie, LP, PF, Addie and Pac's threads for example and say "gross chicken" but the sauce or method sound great and maybe I'll try it with something else.

I would never be rude. If I don't like the recipe at all, I won't comment.

If someone askes for an opinion I will be as honest as possible without hurting someone's feelings.

Touchy subject I guess.

Just as an after thought. I don't think GG meant to say that no one must have an opinion, she was just sharing something posted on FB and that we should think before posting since some posts may end up hurting people's feelings. I also understand what Andy meant, we shoud be able to post our opinions without feeling like we've done something wrong. I think they are both right in their own way.

the problem is that some people are very sensitive, and some people are perceived as being rude, and/or both.

touchy, indeed!
