We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

    it's almost hard to believe how scarce the collective sense of humor is in these parts.  This thread was a good natured poke at what appears may be the end (or at least the beginning of the end) of the old forum.  The poke, taken so seriously by those that have attacked & 'troll flagged' me, couldn't possibly be more obvious.  As if anyone would believe for a second that 'you people' are personally responsible for the downfall of another internet bbq forum - please.  The day this forum went online the writing was on the wall for the old forum, it's simply the nature of evolution that the new replaces the old, the cycle of life.  While it has taken some time and may take some more, the inevitible will occur.  All of the infighting and animosity that has been displayed going in both directions from the date this site went on line through today has been nothing short of astounding to me, interesting to watch from the sidelines, but nonetheless astounding.  I will never understand why anyone here cares about what occurs there and vice versa.  Lighten up folks

    If you don't understand why anyone cares what occurs at either site, why did you bother posting it. It's not like your Dan Rather reporting the nightly news, maybe you need to lighten up.

    This clown (McNuttly) is from the other forum.

    Why doesn't he remove the makeup and red nose, reveal his true identity?

    Utarded you seem confused so allow me to explain.  The fact that I don't understand why people care doesn't mean they don't care.  They most certainly do, including apparently you, thus my public service announcement.  Let me know if there's anything else I can help you out with

    Focker, 'his' makeup and red nose have been (intentionally) removed multiple times for the more than one year of his existence thus revealing his true identity, if it has somehow continued to escape your attention I cannot explain that

    simple really, it all goes back to my very first comment on the forum, a dig at famed member little steven.  It was a joke directed at a friend who understood it as such.  Unfortunately so many other members injected themselves into it not recognizing it was a joke & accordingly went & got themselves all upset about it 'on behalf' of little steven.  As a result the forum has collectively decided that McNuttly is unwelcome so the nut is attacked regardless of what he says

    So who is McNuttly really?  I saw you repost the same pictures that Zip did but I don't know if I want to believe you're Marc.  If you are Marc, thanks again for your continuous help. :)


  • Cazzy, to remove all doubt, yes you are correct.  McNuttly was created long before he appeared here as a joke on the old forum and I outed him then.  He's not the first I've created but all have shared the same common elements, they were all done with humor in mind & all were self-outed.  My 'anonymous characters' are never permanent and have never had malicious intent, however they always seem to quickly identify the 'serious' people on the forum, those that don't look for levity & humor in situations first but prefer to take a serious approach to everything.  You know the kind, people that want to be offended, & if not directly they inject themselves into a given situation to be offended on behalf of others they see as having been attacked.  I've always wondered why the real world doesn't provide enough of that nonsense...  when I log onto a bbq forum I take the default position that everything said by everyone is said in jest.  If it turns out not to be the case often that makes it even funnier.  Not everyone shares my particular sense of humor, I get that, as I don't share everyone else's; however I do like to believe I can at least recognize a sense of humor even if I don't share it which is a lot better than getting all upset about it...

    I personally never was offended by you nor do I ever think I attacked your alter persona.  It was actually kinda entertaining is there was always a sense of sarcasm in your responses to people who flamed you.  You didn't go Rubmyrock on anyone and actually did provide some valid points in your initial post during the pizza thread.  I think what's most interesting is that if you made that exact post as Zippylip, it would have been a non-issue. lol

    The funny thing is that Little Steven knew it was you from go.

    Exactly correct on each count.  This is another one of those 'perception is reality' things, people perceive zippy as a good contributor & he gets some level of respect while the Nut is perceived as a nut when he says exactly the same thing. 

    By the way our little friend also told us early on that he could 'zip' all 5 mother sauces off his head
