I was just looking in this sub-forum, and I realized I never introduced myself: I just dove in and started posting. So, how did I end up here? I'm a refugee from the Discuss Cooking forum. I started there, very optimistic and excited to share ideas with like-minded people, only to find that there are a few who prefer antagonizing people to actually sharing ideas. I don't want to characterize the entire forum that way: most of the people are terrific. But, those few really ruined the experience for me. As an example of how terrific some of the members of that forum were, one of them - who you know as @buckytom - recommended this forum to me. I have to say, I couldn't be happier that he did.
