Please treat this discussion forum with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.
These are not hard and fast rules, merely aids to the human judgment of our community. Use these guidelines to keep this a clean, well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.
Just simple “Golden Rule” stuff here. Our experience over many years is that bakers are a uniquely friendly and intelligent subset of the general population. So while we’re not worried about the civility of the forum conversations, we do reserve the right to remove any content or user account at our discretion.
Feel free to brag (and especially to post your best bread shots in the baker’s gallery!), and personal reviews of products you have purchased and used are great too, but please don’t use the forum as a billboard to advertise commercial products or services.
If you are posting a recipe in the Reader Recipes category, please post a an actual recipe; not a link to a recipe that exists elsewhere.
