Unfortunately Charlie just about every post had to be filtered. It gets really time-consuming when you have to do that and it got so totally out of control they couldn't keep up with it. I've seen other food forums go down the tubes for the same reason. People may hate me here but I won't let it happen. Instead of taking up all my time with editing I just simply delete. Gets the point across MUCH quicker.

I don't watch the Food Channel as much anymore. To many repeats now.

“Gets the point across MUCH quicker.”

Make sense to me. That is the only way to do it. Interesting, how did manage to miss all of the garbage, hm, o well, doesn’t matter.

Charlie, it was my understanding that the boards actually went away because it was not making the network any money. They decided that they didn't want to deal with the upkeep and cost of running the board if they didn't get any return on investment, at least that is what they told me when I called them.

While I don't watch much of FoodTV anymore, I do use their recipe website very often. They are the first site I go to when I need to find a new recipe (not counting this site of course).

CharlieD I rarely watch FTV anymore. My favorites are all reruns and the new ones are lousy and I am tired of bameril.

I used to love watching FTV, but can't seem to find many new shows. I keep trying, but usually end up watching Fine Living, or HGTV if I can find some of their new shows. I really like Barefoot Contessa and Michael Chiarello and, of course, Alton Brown., among a few others.
BTW, I read somewhere that Sandra Lee is the "next Martha Stewart" and worth millions. Go figure.
