I feel the rule is unnecessary restrictive. There is a use of alcohol vs abuse. As a result many old cartoons may not be discussed here.
The largest problem I have come in the food forum. as result I could not discuss some of my recipes because they use alcohol, for example Chicken in Red wine and Fajitas because I use sherry as part of the marinade base. I could not discuss Japanese cooking, Sake and Mirrin are very important ingredients in a Yaktori, teriyaki base and sukiyaki
