WAKE UP! This is not a ploy to come to my site ... you guys could at least
post a press release or two. Your personal reviews are lacking ... where is
everyone? I leave for a long, long time and this place turns into a freaking
Post in the name of beer ...
Um, Jason, everyone who really cares about beer spends most most of their
Internet beer time at your site. I only come here to see if anything
interesting shows up. Happens once in a while. Your site is THE resource
for everything beer. But you already knew that. Keep up the great work.
(And no, I am in no way connected to the beeradvocate site.)
Today, I had three bottles of Rusty Trombone, an oatmeal stout that I
brewed. Velvety smooth and delicious!
And I prefer this newsgroup over your site.
visit the New York City Homebrewers Guild website:
It would be so much easier to believe you if you hadn't posted a
sigfile with THREE links to your site.
And actually, such antics and egotism (not just by you, and not just on
this newsgroup) is one of the primary reasons I largely gave up on
Usenet in the first place.
Besides which, I get *paid* for most of my beer writings/opinions; why
should I post them for free?

Wake up. Usenet is dead.
And it's tough to believe this is not a ploy to come to your site when the
only time in the past few years you post is either to post a link to your
site - with no comments on the issue at hand, just the link - or your
approximately annual whine that r.f.d.b. is dead. I find it odd that it
seems to bother you so much.
Oooh, regurgitating press releases is so much a sign of vibrant life!
Then stay away if it bothers you so much.
And, honestly, I can't say we've missed you here.
Rfdb is what it is; a small collection of people BSing about beer. It works
for me and a couple dozen other people. It's like the regulars at your local
pub. Sure, there's a bigger pub down the road, and it's probably fancier and
definitely has more people. But it's not my local, and it's not the crowd
I'm used to. I'll visit the other place once in a while, but I like the
atmosphere of the old, small local better, and I'll stick with it for now.
And where's your contribution on that front, other than whining about people
not "posting for beer"? And links with no commentary don't count.
Check the WSJ article I posted. Oh dear, you must be feeling a bit
rough today. Maybe the after-effects of a few too many last night?
What are they lacking. My guess is most everyone is here, excepting
you of course.
Hmmm. I wonder if you should not have abandoned this forum. Well,
after considering the tone of your post it was probably a good thing.
Shilling for traffic on your site?

Yeah, it's a pretty good site and while we're saying nice things, his
brother Todd is a really nice guy too.

No but I sure as hell notice him back. I didn't exactly "hear" him
enter but my nostrils flared...
