I just couldn't resist...
Have been off the Boards for a good time and come back to see it seems to be spiraling down...
I guess it couldn't be respectable forever....

Well, the first 12 cases of their chard that get sent to stores are from their select bottling they use for shows and competitions.

The Double gold best of show chard is based on the first few cases to hit your stores!

There are vast and ponderous levels of 2BC to be deciphered! Awesome wines if you can time it right and decipher the bottle codes!!!! Amazing if you hit the right barrel.

I long for the days when this board would involve worthier discussions such as your contributions to such important topics like wine Whole Foods.

So now some people feel the board is spiraling downward because members post about wine lists they’re on opening for sale?

Sounds more like a case of envy.

At least the Mollydooker one was funny because people USED to lose their shit over those wines at some point.

Well for one it is Fall when new releases happen, so there's that. If I am honest and that rarely happens, I would admit hanging around here just for the Berserker Day deals. Everything else is filler.

The only responsible course of action is to shut down the board now. We can't in good conscience allow this level of heartache.

I actually find it helpful in some cases. Would have missed at least a few offerings due to emails getting stuck in spam if it wasn't for those threads.

In the context of your original post, I had understood "commercial" to mean profit-oriented. As to your second post, I believe that "we are supposed to spend money on" goes a bit far. The fervent chasing and purchasing of over-priced, mediocre wine some of which the chasers have never tasted is irrational behavior, but if the chasers want to amplify the frenzy by posting here there is no harm done. Frankly, it can be entertaining.

Or the "Which Boones Farm Flavor are you drinking today" thread. Winetalk is the last category I hit when I go on this site - and usually it's once every couple of weeks.

BUT - The older Burgundy and Bordeaux guys still post some nice notes - and I always look for the older vintage notes. And, a big thank you to all the real wine geeks who always seem the first to post about a winery changing hands etc -
