Jul 16, 2010 at 17:03 comment added Pulse @Aaronaught The term "serving' is far to ambiguous, so I've answered lower down.

Jul 16, 2010 at 16:25 comment added hobodave Meh. I will eventually +1 this because I think the intentions behind the question are good. However, I spent all my daily meta votes in the domain name thread. :( I don't think that trying to answer these questions with respect to the super-topic of 'serving' is the best approach, but that each subtopic should be narrowly defined and decided.
Jul 16, 2010 at 16:02 comment added Aaronut And @Pulse, I really think you should reconsider your position, because if you stop to think about it, using serving as the parent category is a lot less ambiguous and contentious than using drinks or alcohol as the parent category. Beer brewing definitively doesn't fit under the definition of serving. Wine pairing does. This is what you want, isn't it?
Jul 16, 2010 at 16:01 comment added Aaronut @Pulse: I never said that they were the same. I said that they are all part of a larger category, and that many people's objections to the specific sub-categories (including mine) are a natural result of their objections to the main category. Serving and Cooking are both sub-categories of Food. Just as allowing some questions about alcohol does not mean we have to allow all questions, allowing some questions about serving does not mean we must allow all. I created this to give people an opportunity to rationally address one of the more serious criticisms of certain topics.
Jul 16, 2010 at 15:41 comment added Pulse @Aaronaught Apologies, but you seem to have a problem understanding me. Granted English isn't my first language so it's likely I'll make mistakes. however, I believe my earlier statement was concise. Deciding which plates to use for ones dinner party, or discussing the merits of pink versus white table napkins, in the context of this site is not the same as discussing the use and consumption of various beverages.

Jul 16, 2010 at 15:06 comment added Aaronut @Pulse: Not "buying" what? Do you have a point to make that wine pairing is not an aspect of serving, or is this just another stubborn "I don't like where this is going" thing? Can you at least try to make a rational argument for once?
Jul 16, 2010 at 15:02 comment added Pulse Sorry, I'm not buying this. Trying to include the choice of which plates to use or which tool to cut a pizza has nothing to do with how to choose a wine to accompany a meal or how to mix a cocktail.
