As for the rest of the forum, I don't read or participate anymore. I follow a few journals but only comment occasionally. Graduating last year and starting both my graduate program (40 hrs a week working) and my Masters this year has left me with very little free time - certainly not enough to engage in debates about food on the internet.
I do still hang out a little but everytime I start a post on my journal, I get about a third of the way through and think 'oh stuff it.' I think I'll stick with commenting in other people's journals for now.
