HB Category Elitists

Give some poor soul a medal who has outdone his peers.

This is an idea to give a golden plate or something to anyone who has posted in every category (and subcategory). As this will probably never be achieved, the idea will be pretty cheap to execute.

But, the HB is young with respect to the average baker's life expectancy, so the golden plate could end up just bieng an icon next to the user's name. This will signify that the user is a quite seasoned baker and should be revered/ridiculed for such accomplishments.

       This would, methinks, just encourage people to post rubbish ideas. The best possible reward is the gratitude and affection of our fellow 'bakers, garnered over a long span of faithful 'baking.

       ..or the outrage and opprobrium of our fellow 'bakers gained in two minutes flat.

       No, I don't like this. In theory at least, a good idea is a good idea regardless of who posts it.

       Sometimes a well-chosen word or nicely turned phrase from [DrBob] just makes my day. Go ahead and pin a medal on him with the thanks of a grateful reader.

       Agreed [jurist] and I often have to look them up.

       It's pointless to create a symbol for something that could never be achieved. The roster of categories is not absolute, therefore one's goal of posting an idea in each is utterly unattainable.   

       Besides, I don't come here to compete. I'm just here for the hors d'ouevres. Did you try the smoked salmon in puff pastry? It is to die for.   

       <aside - I tried to smoke a salmon once but I couldn't keep the end lit. Dammit, where's my rim shot?>

Aww, now you've brought out the Don Quixote in me, Canuck. What could be more worthy than the pursuit of an entirely unattainable goal?
