    No, but most of us who are members share things we find on here with our peers, and some of those peers join to contribute to discussion as well. That's the beauty of this confangled internet and networking. We are sorry that your peers are so ashamed of the silliness you plaster on this board that they won't participate.

    I actually interact very little with my peers on my combo or VFD.

    I work with them and have had very little social interaction with the other members on any FD in which I been involved.

    I would absolutely agree that that is the case in some places, but I firmly believe that it's not necessarily the wide spread epidemic that you seem to think it is and it's likely much more prevalent in the departments that you like to advocate for.

    It's more likely that most departments are probably making the needed adjustments in some areas while being "stuck in the past" on some other matters.

    Maybe it's a case of them not wanting to have social interaction with you?

    Can you blame them? You come across as a total tool... and you wonder why your SOP/SOG proposals get shot down faster than Sopwith Camel vs. an F-22 Raptor.

    PS: before you type it.. actually, yes.

    Too dangerous.... Cooking involves heat, there's the whole shellfish allergy worry.... Nope, too dangerous.

    Excellent point, Chenzo I guess as volunteer crawdad cookers, we have no duty to cook, eat or share said crawdads. Furthermore because we are not paid crawdad cookers, we should not be held to any standards.

    I don't have the training or experience to cook crawfish. I just put them in the pot and let nature take its course.

    The fact is, I have more crawfish cooking classes than most on here. That being said, I have more crawfish classes than most. Actually, I have been asked to teach crawfish cooking at the National Crawfish Cooking Academy. That being said, the fact is, I have 33 years of crawfish cooking and the only way any other lowly member of my VCD (volunteer crawfish department) would be allowed to go kitchen interior is when I'm there to micromanage them.
