I was concerned yesterday when Tastespotting appeared to have hit a speed bump and didn’t update all day. When I saw that the site was no longer being run by NOTCOT, I was surprised and saddened. It was a terrific forum for sharing food links as well as an awesome catalog and archive of recipes and ideas. I am hoping that perhaps it just means someone else will be taking over and the site will return, but I don’t know the details.
That said, I’ve received some misguided comments this morning on one of my old posts (where I rant about the posting and misrepresentation of one of my photos by a certain freakishly enthusiastic tastespotting poster). Those commenters somehow feel my blog is a public forum for their misconceptions about copyright, intellectual property, the web, and religion (of all things).
It is not.
So my ground rule is, if you can’t behave yourself in the comments, your comments will be deleted and if you piss me off enough, I’ll just ban your ass. I realize I am preaching to the choir because people with no sense of propriety don’t know that they’re nutcases to begin with…
