OT: just got my hand slapped
Hi everyone.. I just wanted to apologize if I offended anyone with my Home brew question.. I just got my hand slapped on a cooking forum for asking the same question.. it got me thinking that I may have offended folks here too. If so please accept my apologies.

Why in the world would someone object to such a question? Especially on a cooking forum. After all, brewing is a form of cooking.

In my experience some forums seem to be populated by a number of authoritarian stuffed shirts. I've quit a couple of forums due to such people.

Mason,
I was a bit confused, I have to admit. Made me feel bad that I might have offended folks though. I have always enjoyed the southern cooking forum in the past. This forum has spoiled me I guess.

Yeah, that's really odd. As long as everyone respects each others opinion and is kind we have no problem with it.

I read that thread and I can't really see how if would've offended someone, I really though there was nothing wrong with it. Maybe the person is against drinking, but that doesn't mean they need to get offended about you asking a question about your new hobby. Its not like you were pushing anything on anyone. I think that's pretty weird but I guess everyone's entitled to their own opinions (however wrong they may be. Just kidding!)

I agree with all above posts. your thread here isn't offensive to me. if I don't like it, I can just choose not to read it. the title clearly states what it's about. sorry some a**es on that cooking board treated you that way. some people aren't happy unless they're power tripping.

Seriously... I don't see what's wrong with that... Alcohol is not illegal in most countries, whether some people like it or not. Why are there always people who feel the NEED to impose their opinions on everybody else? I can't stand that.

I know many people who don't drink and I never felt they "disapproved" of my morality or anything like that. They made a choice, I respect that, and they respect me. How hard can it be???

I think I need a glass of wine now
