Opening for Moderator of rec.food.recipes

The time has come for me to step down as the moderator of
rec.food.recipes. I am looking for someone who would like to take over as
the new moderator. If have some knowledge of both cooking and of UNIX
(or LINIX) and have some free time each day you could do this. If you
think you might be interested and would like to know more details please
write me at recipes at swcp.com

What's the salary worth??

Dental/Hospital/Medical??

Holidays??

Superannuation??


If it's a good package, I might even consider it.

Then I can retire a second time.

That group simply publishes recipes, right? No comments, no
variations, no improvements? Other than word-processing functions
what would a "moderator" do? Maybe if you could refuse to print lousy
recipes it'd not be so boring? -aem

I don't like rfr. I used to blame it on Stephanie da Silva, the
previous moderator (about 15 years ago). She has posted here a few
times, and I liked her posts just fine. After I grew up a little (I was
only about 45 back then), I realized that it wasn't Stephanie, it was
just the job. It didn't matter who did it, if they did it correctly,
according to the charter, then I wouldn't be happy. That was pretty
easy for me to fix.

We'll see it it works out. :-)
Generally, moderation only takes a couple of times per day.

Yeah... "retire". ROTFL indeed.

The moderator flags off-topic and inappropriate submissions and only
passes posts that are in line with the group's charter -- recipes and
requests for recipes..

Back when there was a move to SPLIT rfc (remember the high feelings on
that one?), Stephanie da Silva, then moderator of rfr and a strong
proponent of the split idea, had a long-standing disagreement with the
late Susan Hattie Steinsapir. I remember one form that tussle assumed
was SdS rejecting one of SHS's recipes on the grounds that it included
a non-food ingredient. Susan Hattie's recipe called for baking
something in a brown paper bag or something like that.

But perhaps, I remember wrongly.

I think you would be a great moderator. I would not have the patience to
deal with some of the requests written by assumed adults at a second
grade level.

Go for it!

It also receives recipe requests. Many of those requests are supposed to
be in English but are barely readable. I think there is a web site that
plugs into the NG and that's where a lot of the requests come from.

I have gotten some really good recipes on that group over the years. I
would miss it.

But...but...but...

She specified "UNIX" experience! The MAC OS is Unix! You mean you
don't spend half your time on the Mac running the Terminal app? I don't
believe that.

We'll see if it works out. :-) I'm willing if my computer is up to the

Right. <g>

I'm always up for an education...

I actually have the terminal ap' in the menu bar, but I don't use it

Isn't a baking tin a non-food item? I'd hate to eat one.

I doubt you'd need to be running Unix/Linux on your own box. Most
likely you'd be using telnet or SSH to connect to a Unix/Linux box.
Once connected, you'd need some familiarity with the environment. If
it's a really old setup, you might not have a graphical interface.

Sounds correct to me. I was pretty new to rfc back then, and that flame war
used to upset me so much! Helped me develop a pretty thick skin, in Usenet
terms anyway. Man oh man, that was a knock-down, drag-out!!!

As far as I know, every moderated newsgroup works the same. For users
like you and I, it works exactly the same as every unmoderated
newsgroup. You just post your request or recipe to the group. However,
it doesn't go to the group, it goes to the moderator. The moderator
then decides whether to let it go to the group or not.

Sure was. I came to rfc in the middle of the first attempt to split
rfc, which was very brutal. I think that is the one you remember?

The 2nd attempt was a bit different, in that a bunch of us formed a
group to develop ideas for new groups and write the charters for them.
The rec.food.baking, rec.food.equipment, and rec.food.marketplace
groups came out of that effort.

I think there was one more attempt to split rfc a year or so later,
but that was the last time.

But I have more fun with those that *need* a bra.

Well, I would check with Patricia about that.

She came to my cook-in (she lives here in ABQ) and we asked her about
moderating RFR. She said it took several hours per week to do it.

You don't drive a MAC... it drives you. OSX is a Unix based OS... DUH!
Beware of the Omlets. Omlets thinks a pressure cooker is a great start
to a great recipe. Omlets is not quite all there. Just witch
local/national group do you DO?... Wartz? A pair of quivering blubber
butts. Grill 'em.

LOL..

This group used to talk about Stephanie da Silva quite a bit. I do not
know her, but I did try one of her tamale recipes.

Good for you! I regret that I am not computer-savvy enough to

Yahoo group moderation is no big deal. ;-)
I check them two or a few times per day depending on posts and time
available.

It's just a matter of approving after a quick glance...

Rec.food.recipes moderation is a bit more complex since questions and
requests are allowed but not comments on the recipes, much as many need
them. Patricia did a very good job within the parameters even if I would
like to have posted "Nonsense!" more than once.
