It was me. In one of the threads it was pointed out there was a thread on Jerky recipes, which Josh deleted because it did not pertain to Animal Concerns. There followed a comment concerning other recipes being left and when I looked back I found that thread. Since recipes were not an Animal Concern issue, I deleted that thread as well.

I should have explained why I deleted the jerky recipe thread more clearly (which I did not). Posting a jerky recipe thread in an animal concerns forum is sort of like yelling fire in a crowded theater when there isn't one. The only reason someone does it is to cause trouble. This is a very gray area, and there are many other postings from both sides that are probably just there to tweak the "other" side, but this was a blatant one, and so I took action.

As for other recipes (or recipes in general), there are literally hundreds if not thousands of recipe-specific sites that archive recipes of all types (including vegan, vegetarian, fruitarian, meat-heavy, etc.). I think in general these fall under the same category as news articles. There's no reason to post entire recipes here unless it is in direct response to a request and is non-incendiary.

In general, there's really no reason to post the entirety of any non-original work here if it can be linked to elsewhere on line. That's the beauty of the net.

Oh shoot I'm sorry. I thought recipes fell under "etc." since they've been around for some time. Alrighty then! No recipes! :shock:

Hi Josh


One thing I would like to note. Sometimes I believe a persons name could be okay in a tread header. Yesterday I wanted to draw attention to a post for Theila that I felt she might have missed. I put the header as This one is for Theila and was actually a link and review for the movie the Yearling. with Gregory Peck as a lead actor. The thread wasn't meant to be an attack in any way shape or form. It was meant as a helpful lead that she and others might enjoy. Sometimes rules get in the way,is all. I can see your point in most cases if they are meant as personal put downs though..

Donnie... I have always been criticized for selectively applying rules, which I do for exactly the reason you expressed. There are always exceptions to rules and in my mind rules are guidelines, not strict orthodoxy.

Ah yes , Wayne the over zealous moderator. To funny. No problem though as I was just offering that rules are sometimes to stringent versus the obvious point if the thread is just about a personal attack.
