A Greenbaker Apology
Hi everyone. This is a main forum apology for a BIG misunderstanding. I have seen forums spin absurdly out of control over the most childish things. Here at The Fresh Loaf I think all of us have found a haven/outlet for our desire to bake artisinal style bread and other general bread products. It was in this spirit that I post several comments to several people inside the forum to aid in their baking and to learn more myself.
Well, all of this was derailed right before Christmas on a forum post that I posted a reply to.
On this post Greenbaker did a fabulous job on a stollen that I was enjoying reading. Then Greenbaker used the word "yummo" as a description of his/her bread. I made a JOKE that I was enjoying his/her bread until he/she referenced the word "yummo" and it made me vommit a little. I was of course referencing Rachel Ray's constant use of this phrase on the Food Network. This started to spin out of control when Holds99 suggested that I should "learn some manners and stop being so rude". At first I didn't think anything of this until Greenbaker thanked Holds99 for "sticking up for me". It was then that I knew there was a problem that needed to be addressed.
So here it is as hopefully clear as possible:
I am truly sorry you misinterpreted my comment. It was ignorant on my part to make a joke at Rachel Ray's expense on your baking blog. In the future I will keep all personal opinions that can be misconstrued as a personal attack on someone else to myself. I am personally a BIG fan of yours and would never have guessed that such a comment would be taken as personally as it has been. My sincere apologies.
