I just read a thread regarding red velvet cake and the tone was extremely condescending. I can take or leave red velvet cake but these sort of threads have an extremely snotty "I'm better than you because I don't like [this crap]" air to them.
There are many such threads regarding restaurants as well.
I suggest the board police take a long hard look at these threads. The point of chowhound is not to make people feel uncomfortable or defensive about things or restaurants they like.
