Subject: [CnD] looking for answers rather than refusal - Re: guide lines; all members please read

If I am who you are referring to, you are totally missing my points.  Why do people not get the points that recipes should be complete in their ingredients lists, or that recipes should be modified so that blind people do not have to ask questions about how to know when the food has been correctly cooked, such as by giving approximate times and temperatures rather than saying to bake until it reaches a certain condition that must be attained through the use of eyesight?  If the sender knows the tips or tricks or help needed by some others to attain the correct results, why not include them in the recipe?  Is it that hard or time consuming to do?  And if it will help people who cannot see, why shouldn't it be done?




If you think you're finished, you! really! are! finished!!

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

I will state this, then unsubscribe, for I am done with the bickering 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 list that the recipes were not pertinent to the group.  Never mind what 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.  When I read a recipe and I see that ingredient, I delete the recipe without reading to the end.  I already know I don't want it.  Yet I have never 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 peak.
A lot of blind people are comfortable with this technique; I am not.
Yet I don't get on here and complain about it; I simply hit Delete.

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

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

Best to all,

Jennifer
