Webmistress Laura is super nice (she got everyone from vegweb free sundaes at Maggie Mudd this summer!) I'm sure she would be happy to address any concerns you have.......if you refrain from calling her a crazy........
Let me know which recipe you're talking about, we don't ever change punctuation unless it's confusing, and certainly don't add exclamation marks. If you can send it to me, I'll do what I can to clean it up. As far as the new forums, hopefully you'll stick around long enough to get used to the changes that the community asked for. You're definitely a valuable member of the community, it would be a bummer for you to be gone! Let me know! My email is laura at vegweb dot com.
