At this point I should point out that there is no "non modded" area on Discuss Cooking. Our site rules apply to ALL areas of the site, public posts, social groups, link gallery, user albums and private messages.

Devils advocate warning!!
Don't shoot me.

And I suppose NO ONE EVERY goes to recipe/food/cooking sites to look for recipes or ideas? Sites need clicks/traffic. Maybe a PRIVATE forum for members only to chat is what you are looking for? Like a back room? This IS a food/cooking/recipe forum after all. I do understand the reason behind the request but I do go to cooking sites for inspiration and HATE being told I HAVE to register to look at recipes. I can't stand all the spam I get afterwards. BUT I don't think anyone should highjack/ plagiarize others work.

That is exactly what I want.

If you don't want something shared: don't post it. Pretty simple.

If you have something to say, and are looking for a "specific crowd", that is what the PM's are for. . .if there is not a forum specific sub forum/usergroup that needs to be approved to join.

When you participate in a public forum, you have to remember, it's public. If there are paid sections/clubhouses/member only areas, that STILL doesn't ensure your online anonymity.

Since I started this thread, I will comment yet again. The point was that guests could see posts (such as recipes), but not page-jack them (although, I am somewhat clueless as to how threads were page-jacked).

I'm in favour of a forum which doesnt have so much open to the public. So I understand what CWS is getting at.

I have run a private forum for many years. I was a member of open forums and we had a few break off groups for those who wished to communicate but not in such an open manner. This isnt about bitching or gossiping but it was about making new friendships and being able to share things you couldnt share on an open site. Since then many of us have built very firm relationships, and have met in real life too now.

+1. That's just the nature of the beast on the internet. Stuff like that happens all the time. It doesn't change anything about DC, and the folks who stumble onto those other sites soon leave because of the lack of connection. People stay at DC, not for the recipes, but for the interaction with their friends.

There have been rumblings before about member's only area. I am passionately and adamantly opposed to that. We have a COMMUNITY here that behaves like a family and a "members only" area will diminish that. Ignore the occasional bit of stupidity, and let the Mods and the owner manage anything that needs to be managed.

If the PTB decide on a Member's Only area, I hope they charge for it. Could be a nice little extra money maker for Andy R. I, for one, will not be participating in that. I've stayed at DC for 10 years because of the friendships and the atmosphere, I don't want to see that ruined.
