I responded to "Are we really that rare? I guess so..." link. The guy told a story about bringing bean salad to a car club meet. I did get a little flighty but I was thinking about what it means to have a great interest in food, as compared to other things. But my response was deleted, as was his response to me. True, I wasn't directly critiquing bean salad or providing ideas about a different bean salad. But is Not About Food not an appropriate forum for larger and potentially interesting issues?
