I've been thinking about why I found this site so very unhelpful and realized that this is because of the implied body-positivity of this SE.
This should be made more explicit to improve user experience, in my humble opinion.
I can't speak for everyone, but personally, I am very much not into body-positivity. I believe that people should strive to be healthy and fit.
In my opinion, cooking-related advice is meaningless unless nutrition and long-term health consequences are considered. Otherwise, I'd probably eat cookies and (real) ice cream all day, while drinking dessert wines every evening. Any food can be made tastier by putting more sugar and fat into it, which is what the food industry is doing, hence the current obesity epidemic.
Anyway, I don't expect to convince body-positive people that they are wrong. However, body-positivity is not something that everyone who finds this site believes in.
So why doesn't this site include some kind of prominent disclaimer saying that it's body-positive, and that advice given here explicitly ignores long-term health consequences (This is currently buried somewhere under
food-safety tag info)?
In summary, this site is body-positive, but I'm not. I don't belong here. I can see that now, but if this site had a disclaimer, this would have saved me a ton of time.
Here's a disclaimer that I propose:
We support body-positivity
It should be shown in a way that CANNOT be missed.
I just think this site needs to acknowledge what it is.
