Well, guess I’ll put in my two cents worth. Didn’t feel worthy to comment. Checked, I’ve been a member for a little over two years…….. So I’m gonna comment.
Papajoe, thanks for raising the issue, its definitely worthy of discussion. I’m aware you posted the topic in early January but your concern is timeless.
"Roadfood" has become a wonderful place for this retiree to hang out. My wife just smiles, shakes her head concerning the time I spend on this website. I hasten to add, she certainly has enjoyed several meals inspired by you my friends!
I certainly am not an accomplished techie, nor a decent typist. You should see which two fingers I use to post a message!
I’ve made a few mistakes, mostly early on(my opinion), hopefully not(many) in the future. Good advice has been given. As for me, here’s an example as to how I deal with suspicious posts. If you go to "where to eat" you’ll find a recent post touting a restaurant in Roswell, New Mexico. Being a New Mexican, I responded with enthusiasm. Poster’s name sounded familiar, so checked his only other post. The message I sent reasonably mirrored Al the Mayors response to his first post concerning another restaurant.As of about an hour ago,remember I type slowly, the individual had only one response to each of the two posts. Point is, I’m not gonna get upset or suspicious about devious intentions which may or may not be occuring. I suggest we be curteous. So what if we get taken for a ride occasionally?
I believe our moderators are on top of maintaining proper behavior. Hats off to our members, I sense we are able to do a good job of dealing with the rare but occasional bad apple.
Long talk I put before you, thanks for listening.
Pot of Gumbo tonight, smoked baby back ribs tomorrow night!
