Please don't misquote me in featured post! Re; Shared dishes post by me..
Hi, just want to defend myself here, Chowhound editors; YOU COMPLETELY MISSQUOTED ME HERE in your 'condensation' of my quote in my post regarding shared dishes in French Resto's. I am shocked you said I was shocked at the practice - since I said NO SUCH THING AT ALL! In fact, I said it was a shame we didn't see this more in the US, and was trying to explore if others felt the same.
If you look through my many posts, you would realize that I have been to France several times, have a French BF, and was actually trying to engender a conversation about how I LOVE this convivial style of serving - very welcoming and homey, as well as makes me feel 'hosted' as it is often an Amuse Buche that comes this way.
I wanted to hear other Chowhounds from around the country - if they see this style of service in their cities and towns, as I don't much in Seattle, where I live.
Please be careful about misrepresenting a faithful Chowhounder like that - I feel abused by the editors, and embarrassed about how you made me sound as if I was a shocked neophite traveler!
Please retract and rewrite this, or take it down, for the sake of my reputation here.-
Here's a link to the digest post, just so people know what we're talking about here:
And here's the original board post, which is still open for business:
Wow, that is pretty egregious. The way they quote you as saying "I think it is a shame" after carefully snipping out what "it" refers to, so it sounds like you're saying exactly the opposite of what was in your original post.
I would be furious, too, but I don't think I'd hold my breath waiting for the editors to own up to it or do anything about it.
