Yes indeed, the basis of this whole forum is sharing recipes tips and help for free, not criticising abusing trolling and making members leave or feel they can’t post, those who deter this should be removed
So the forum is moving towards a ban on saying anything the slightest bit negative or critical about recipes which they've tried and weren't very keen on?Here's two recent examples (compare and contrast):1. Livo recently tried a recipe which I posted in 2005 from an outline kindly drafted by Ghanna for chicken korma. Livo was very critical and said he planned to throw it in the bin. I was disappointed but there you go. Nobody sent me messages of support, like they worried I might be devastated.2. A few days later I tried Romain's recipe for chicken dhansak. I said I thought it was poor compared to the dishes served by a half-decent BIR. Should I have lied and said it was delicious? Romain went ballistic and started laying into me. He said he'd received numerous messages of support, presumably suggesting he ignore me because my opinion counts for nothing.I don't know who all these long standing members are who criticise any recipe published here by a newbie. I suggest it's nonsense. It can't include me because Romain's dhansak was the first recipe I've tried and commented on from this forum in several years.Conclusion - everybody needs to feel like a winner. No negative comments whatsoever are allowed from now on. If so, this forum has lost the plot.
I dislike a few people here as much as they dislike me. The reason I don't post recipes, or even cooking techniques here is that I'm not prepared to let these people into what I regard as significant discoveries.
I've been thinking about this after one or two people correctly pointed out that I don't post recipes on this web site, or anywhere else, actually.I could do that, at risk of getting into serious legal trouble for copyright infringement.

Which is it? I'm still waiting for any evidence of your credentials BTW. I have put mine forth. Where are yours?
I suppose what it really comes down to is whether the criticism is constructive or not? Constructive criticism has to be allowed in my opinion.
A bir chef who showed me a learning method which works to get bir flavours told me that " A good bir cook can get good results from a poor recipe but a bad cook will not get a good result from a good recipe.Whats occuring with some here is frustration so only response is.It must be the recipe If I post the method I was taught on this forum will it be subjected to the same condemnation ? Yes I believe so
