Do donuts go bad if you don't use them immediately?

There was a diary this morning that weighed in on the president's debate performance, and the resulting shifts in polling, and called out for a clear eyed perception of how the political landscape may have changed, and what's to be done about it.  At the end of the diary was this request:

Umm, but by the way, if anyone has a good broccoli-chedder soup recipe, I'd be quite receptive to that.   Thanks!
I read the diary, and agreed mostly with what the diarist had to say.  There wasn't much more I could add to the discussion, but I did have a recipe for the broccoli-cheddar soup he was craving.  So I posted it.

And I was promptly HR'd for doing so.  What the fuck is that all about?

Not only did I get HR'd, but another member here that I have always had nothing but respect for actually uprated the donut.  I guess the only thing better than free jazz at high noon is completely unwarranted donuts in the morning.

Have we come to this?  You know's not even like I haven't ever gotten some donuts before...I have.  Usually they are deserved, or at the very least not a surprise.

But providing a recipe to someone who requests it?  Was the recipe vile?  I looked at it a second time to see if, perhaps, it called for kitten broth, or sauteeing the onions in dolphin blubber.  Nope.

I want to thank Commonmass, Elmo and Anafreeka for coming to my defense.  The guy who dropped the HR bomb on me never came back and responded.  The day was, no doubt, young, and there were donuts that needed to be used before they got stale.

It amazes me, sometimes, what gets under people's skins here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
