I have read through all comments in an unbiased manner and I do not see that anyone here is what I would call "wrong".
Squeezy brought up a valuable point that mattered to him and that means it matters to all of us.
Monty addressed it and then talked to me about it.
I decided that while it may be a little "cutesy' to call Lamb "Baa-Baa" that it meant nothing other than just the fact that in many cases lamb is referred to as Baa-Baa and that it is just being funny and nothing more.
I use sheep manure in my garden and have for years.. when I buy it in the store it is called "Baa-Baa Doo" and is labeled that way on the bag.
I think Squeezy's point had merit and so much so that Monty and I took time to discuss it via a PM at length.
The decision was made to not change it at this time.. that does NOT mean that it will never be changed.
If it truly offending others then let us know and we may be willing to concede.
I try to take everyone opinion to heart but in the end I talk most things over with the moderator group and we make a decision and run with it.
I am a really busy guy with several profitable websites that I spend untold hours on while this forum is not a money maker at all.. I never intended it to be.
I provide this forum and the moderators do lots of work, without pay I might add, so that anyone that cares to can have a place to come and discuss the great art of smoking meat.
Furthermore, I am committed to this forum and will keep it going even if I have to pay the hosting myself.
Thankfully, we have had about 25 folks who have stepped forward and taken care of the hosting for 2007 and it is obvious those folks are committed as well.
I wanted to handle this in this way so as to show everyone that it is ok to speak your mind and if you have a problem then throw it out and let's talk about it.
It is not wrong to bring something to the table.. it is also not wrong for the moderator group and admin to decide how to handle it and run with it.
The decisions are not always going to be favorable to everyone and that is just the nature of things.
I appreciate everyone here and it is YOU that makes everyone who comes here say that this is the BEST smoking meat forum on the internet.
Anyone can purchase vbulletin and some hosting and put up a forum but without great people you will not have a great forum. It is that simple.
You guys are great.. lets get back to doing what we do best!!
