We're a community, and I don't think it's 'noise' per se- it's more 
like the pleasant buzz around the table when friends gets together. 
And I don't know about you, but the community aspect of this list is 
incredibly important to me. (I haz luvs fer u!)

About the recipes, I wonder if that isn't from people who want us to 
do their work for them. We don't necessarily post recipes, but we do 
post a heckuva lot of links to sources, info on books and texts, 
translation help, etc. The material is there- they just have to raise 
the spoon to the mouth. I for one spent plenty of time playing 
airplane with a spoon (and having the mush dribbled back out as often 
as not) and I'm not minded to do it for adults.

I dunno about 'spoon tease' stuff- maybe we need to be more 
conscientious about posting links or bibliography? That's enough, IMNSHO.
