My memory is when this section of the site used to be about memories for all to share. It is obvious no one checks them any longer there have been some that are gibberish, some make no since and some are offensive to others, ex: the confederate flag cake. Then when giving your opinion on it you are attacked by others telling you have no right to be offended and you are evil for letting kids watch a kids cartoon! The swapped recipes have been the same boring 3 for months now and the baking articles are the same every year. I used to enjoy being on here daily however its the same thing everyday with nothing new. Please review the memories and the reviews when people are attacked for giving their review!

Most of the stories I read share good memories of childhood baking with mothers/grandmothers and passing their stories/experiences to their own children and grandchildren. I keep an open mind and hope that everyone who has access to this site treats it with respect.

I hate to disagree with you but I go to this site every day and haven't see any memories that were gibberish or offensive to others. But I guess that is always subjective, it is what you make of it. As far as the swapped recipes go, they are submitted by the readers, did you ever think that perhaps readers have not been submitting any new ones? VBB cannot change them if they do not have new ones to change. You can always click underneath to look for others you know.

Another thought occured to me because I've the complaint about the swapped recipes on the baking memory portion of VBB before. Why not send your complaint directly to VBB instead of to the readers here? VBB might respong better if the complaint was direct to them. They have always responded to my questions in a timely manner.

I did happen to see the story on the confederate flag cake.There were two very rude comments posted on this memory.This is a site for nice memories and not bad memories of times past. If we all look hard enough we can drudge up hard feelings.Nice memories flow out easily and bring a smile to your face.I have a lot of wonderful memories of my Mother and I baking and cooking at her side.I watch the cooking shows of today and see the chefs doing things they learned in cooking school and I smile because our dear Mothers and Grandmothers were doing the same without any schooling.I miss my Mom so much and I do come to this site to read others memories of their families,it always puts a smile on my face and love in my heart.Please don't ruin it for others.

It is your right to not like something. You don not have to read it. Skip it and go on to something else. there is no need for the ugly comments......

It's up to the members of this site, so encourage, rather than discourage. Not everyone types well, so some of the misspellings I attribute to that & as long as the meaning comes through, ours is a freedom of speech nation, so we should not read what we don't like and allow everyone that chooses to, be entitled to their own opinion, as long as they maintain the basic rules of behavior. Don't give credibility or power to those that are crass, instead contribute good feeling, thoughts, memories, recipes--yourself and encourage your friends/family to do so, as well. Take control of the situation and improve it. I log on almost everyday and I do enjoy many of the stories, some which bring me to tears.

I have contacted VBB several times about the swapped recipes never changing and even sent some in because I thought they must need them, but they never posted them. I always enjoyed them when they were changed every day.

I agree with Jai R. I too have contacted VBB about the Swapped Recipes. I've contacted them & all they say is that they sent my complaint to the person or persons that is in charge of the Swapped Recipes, but that is all that happens. I never seen them change in almost two months or more. I've also sent in recipes also & as Jai R. says I never seen them on Swapped Recipes either. I even wrote to the VBB Memories as many of you know. I probably was the first one to complain about it to the VBB Meroies, but I did get a lot of responce from people that agreed with me.

I did not see anything on the confederate flag. Some email have not made any sense but there have been some good ones too. I had a problem with this site and when I did a live chat they asked me if they could send me email updates. I plainly stated "NO" and would come to this site only when I was searching info.

I have also complained about swapped recipes. I have sent recipes in and they have never posted them. I have also complained about a few "memories" that were a bunch of randomly typed letters from the alphabet.

I commend you for submitting intelligent, well thought out comments. I was a part of the confederate flag story submitted and it did get out of hand. The personal attacks were like schoolyard brawls instead of grown-up talks and sharing of memories. This site desparately needs an overhaul immediately!
