I joined Recipezaar in 2002. Ten years later, I barely recognize the place. Lively debate and discussion by many in the Community Cafe no longer happens for fear of the threads being banned. For years we managed ourselves without forum police, but now a few people take their jobs as hosts far too seriously and have driven members away by the hundreds. If there is any doubt, look at the first page of CC. Dozens of posts by one person, with very few responses. A few years ago, one day's worth of posts would have taken up at least two pages with dozens of different posters and lots of great discussion. I miss those days, but have maintained the friendships. Thank goodness for Facebook! LOL. Peace.
