Bourdain Banned

New, 3 comments

Yesterday, the Adam Roberts FN Dish interview with Tony Bourdain caused quite the chatter on foodie forum eGullet, much to the chagrin of the board's adminstrators. They deleted the thread with the following explanation: "The first post violated the External Linking Guidelines from the Member Agreement. Second, none of the subsequent posts discussed food, cooking, eating, or anything at all -- a string of comments about how drunk Bourdain appeared to be does not a discussion make. The fact that Bourdain is a 'food personality' does not make every topic about him relevant to the mission of the Society and eG Forums." [eGullet via Eater]
