Hello!

Hello, I'm Kate and I'm new to this board.

We just started an online, all natural beef, store [link deleted] - and I'm excited to see recipes, meet new friends and share our amazing beef with you guys.

Thanks for welcoming me to your site - I can't wait to connect.

Kate

As this is in the pit anyway, can you delete the link in the OP and leave this up so we can mock it?

I'm so disappointed. Kate is one of my favorite girl's names.

I had such high hopes for you, KatePS. You've broken my heart.

I wondered if the "BBQ Pit" name is what attracted the beef ad?

I'm very annoyed by your website.

It clearly states:

Quote:

Quarter

A quarter of beef is just the right amount for many families. You can expect to get at least 175 lbs. of beef for only $6.15, which is much cheaper than buying each of the items included in this package individually. Your quarter of beef will include a variety of steaks, roasts and steakburger.
Well, I'm up for 175lbs of beef for $6.15.

However when I add it to my cart we're talking over seven hundred of your american dollars.

Why do you lie?

Hitting diferent boards and signing up just to drop an ad for her company is spam.

I suppose that's true but I tend to associate spam with scams and stuff where as at least this seems like a legit company, and given it's a family firm this could be a 12/75 year old or something trying hard so I am inclined to give some slack.

You may be, and if it were a board you were sole admin of, you could do just that. However, this board isn't yours to administrate.

I can still give my opinion, especially when it's pointing out stuff that an overworked mod might miss or be reluctant to look for. I see it as being helpful

Shipping and handling. You just can't send a part of a cow through the post.

I wasn't sure how much cattle cost, but I guess it never occurred to me that a single cow is worth almost $5,000.

Edit: Gosh, I hate to actally have a real discussion in between all the fun we're having...but if one had a few acres, how much could one profit from raising a single calf to full delicious adult meaty-ness?

Maybe I was raised differently, but I thought "share" meant you had an excess of something and gave, say, half of it to someone else, just to be nice.

Or at least that's how I've always shared my amazing beef.

Don't forget to account for the countless dollars in psychological damage you'll suffer from having to slaughter an adorable cow. And I had named him Steve!

What a horrible name for a cow! He was probably glad to be put out of his misery.
