Well put, Ms.  Jennifer.  If I see a recipe that calls for 
coconut, which I cannot stand and will not touch same with jello,

My apologies, but I cannot tell who it was that stated he or she 
he or she was not unfriendly.  Sometimes, I cannot figure out 
gmail account.  Anyway, Wayne, I think you may have been the one 
make that statement, and, no, you are not the unfriendly one.

I will state this, then unsubscribe, for I am done with the 
and bullying that goes on here.  I know it's not a constant 
thing, but
it's wearing on the nerves.

When Naima began sending her copycat recipes to the list, I 
thought it
was great!  Most of them I had no intention of making, but I 
liked to
see how they were done.  Then one person decided for the whole 
that the recipes were not pertinent to the group.  Never mind 
others might feel.  Yes, others did agree with him, and others 
felt as
I do.  That's why I mentioned hitting the Delete key if a recipe
didn't appeal.  I, for instance, absolutely abhor cream cheese.  
I read a recipe and I see that ingredient, I delete the recipe 
reading to the end.  I already know I don't want it.  Yet I have 
requested that people don't post things with cream cheese in it.

There are many recipes where one must beat egg whites to a stiff 
A lot of blind people are comfortable with this technique; I am 
Yet I don't get on here and complain about it; I simply hit 

Know your comfort zone and move on!  Why would you deprive others 
something they may enjoy?

Okay, I'll climb down from my soapbox, now, but it's going to be 
long step down!  I will hit the Send button now, then I'm off to

Best to all,

 If you want to thank someone for a recipe please do so off list.

 4.  Please limit posting of multiple recipes to about 5 to 7 per 
day.  You
 take the time to post them, so make sure that they get read.  
Bombarding the
