Default Hey, I'm new to this board and don't know the board dynamics andpolitics

I've been reading a bit and trying to find out how the people who post
here regularly act with each other and what the main dynamic of the
board is. I'm still trying to figure it out.

As with other boards, there are antagonists and friends and cliques.

I don't want to make enemies or friends yet, I just want to have some
interaction about food and cooking
with people who also find cooking pleasurable and interesting and who
are foodies like me.

So, Hi. I'm hoping this board will become a favorite and a place
where I can have conversations with
like minded foodies.

All I can say is, dive in and post what you want to post. You won't please
all of the people all of the time, but if you want to do that, you won't
post at all

The noise ratio here is very high. But if you have a thick skin, you'll
get along just fine.

Don't hold your breath, but if you want to be regarded as an improvement
to the group, don't start any off-topic threads and try not to get
hooked into them. That can be difficult, I know.

If you want to talk about your dead pet, your sick pet, politics,
computer problems, or the latest Ole and Lena joke, there are
appropriate groups for that. In theory, the rfc chat room was
established for off topic chatter but recently some of *their* junk got
dragged over here! Go figure. LOL! Have you read the r.f.c. FAQ
file? Victor Sack posts a link regularly and frequently (a couple times
a month? Once, for sure.).

Welcome to the fray. I haven't received your membership application and
entry fee yet and I believe the bylaws state that you're not allowed to
post until the Cabal (TINC) has approved your request for membership.

Thanks Koko.....checked out the site. Lots of interesting stuff
there.

I like the idea of the cook alongs, but I noticed that the last one
was in 2007. Maybe some would like to revive that tradition.

Wait a sec! I thought we voted at the last Cabal (TINC) meeting that
the Trollops got to vote on this, too! I'll take my bribe, erm,
membership application fee in US cash, please.

Continuing in that vein - this IS usenet, not googlegroups. You'll have
more street cred if you get a real news reader and a real usenet server for
participating in rec.food.cooking. There are a lot of folk that
automatically block any and all posts from googlegroups because it is an
unending source of spam. If none of this makes sense, ask for a bit of
help and guidance - the natives are friendly.

How many times do we have to tell you, TINC you infidel ;-)
We will douse you with cans of cream of mushroom soup and stuff spam
up your nostrils until you disclose all you know.

And it will be Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup,

Yes, well, we still haven't received your application nor your
registration fee. It's a good thing you can't post until you get those
documents submitted.

And don't let anyone tell you there are rules. This is an unmoderated
newsgroup, possibly one of the oldest, and as such these suggestions
above are nothing more than that and have no more force than that.

That being said, you CAN paticipate in off-topic conversations if such is
your desire. The only thing that a poster who disagrees with you can do
is killfile you, which means they won't see your posts.

But nonetheless, here are a few broad guidelines:

1. You will most likely do better if you refrain from using foul
language, although sometimes foul language is acceptable. Know the
difference.

2. If you don't like the topic, don't open the post. That is in effect
the only rule and you are entirely responsible for whatever happens after
that. No one will have any pity for you if you whine afterwards about
what you read.

3. It's usually a faux pas of sorts to feed the trolls unless you are
counting coup :-) Trolls, contrary to some opinions, are not people you
(or others) merely disagree with, they are people who post disruptive
messages so they can say they "made you look". Around here, a common
troll would be a reference to cooking human flesh or some such thing. On
a .physics group, it could be posting chemistry formulas and posting pro-
Nazi comments on a .jewish group. A troll with self-respect will make
sure his post is geared to the particular newsgroup. Nothing is more
embarassing than a troll who targets a group with a message that is
intended for another.

People here will try to mould you into a perfect little rfc'er. Don't
let them. Be bold, be interesting, get into it, even if it's politics or
religion or woodworking. Feel free to provide supporting comments on any
topic of your choice. Threads degenerate anyway. The more interesting
discussions are usually not about cooking but about attitudes.

Oh, and there are long-standing acrimonious debates and enmities here. I
suggest you let those play out before you step in the middle saying:
Can't we all just get along?? Because the simple answer is no, we can't,
this is why the gods invented killfiles. Learn to use them.

4. Don't take anything personally. You're here to have fun and if you're
not having fun then you need to reassess your approach.

5. Try to edit your replies (as I have done) and to avoid top posting.
Some people here killfile top posters.

Go forth, grasshopper...
