Peter, when I 1st read this "..... Maybe these posts work better in a social medium but most people who visit and join this forum do so because they want to learn how to make pizzas. And they may not have time to wade through posts that do not serve that purpose."
I thought, gee too bad. I for one do not have time to visit multiple forums, I do really want to learn about making pizza, but I also like to socialize a bit. For example this thread, has brought some really happy, LOL moments and had nothing to do with making pizza.
I then realized that perhaps, humor or social comment should be only presented in the "chat" forum, or non-pizza related areas.
Well, at least it is Fri and pizza baking time is right around the corner.
