Why I Like Kitchen Knife Forums
In addition to the sheer volume of valuable, pertinent information shared freely here, the real reason why I like it here is the relaxed, helpful atmosphere whereby members can post questions without having to worry about having some child (or more often a child-like adult) jump down their throats and demand to know, for instance, why they did not spend hours searching on the off chance that an answer might already have been posted.
I'm ranting a bit because, after belonging for years to a car forum I posted my very first ever request for guidance in connection with a narrow DIY issue (after having first spent a few hours searching for a solution both on-line and in my car's wheel-well). Sure enough, right away the "why don't you search instead of wasting our time" reply pops up. Which of course caused me to waste another hour I'll never get back fruitlessly searching once again.
I've never seen that happen here, and hopefully never will. :thumbsup: I rarely post anything knife related because I still have so much to learn, but it's nonetheless great to be able to share in this community.
