Ed, nobody has responded so I'll chime in: I'm a nobody/chronic lurker here so you SF bigtimers won't care at all (although presumably there are more out there like me) - but I think I definitely would be extremely disappointed if Matt stopped posting in this and the other food threads. Nothing against other contributors here, but his stuff is consistently so well put together and visually interesting and appealing that it reaches levels most of the other frequent contributors do not even come close to.
Let's face it: the guy has a great eye for a lot of different things and incredible taste. He's also been really helpful in providing recipes, how to tips, etc. I basically stopped lurking over at MC after Matt left; I'd probably stop coming here too if he stopped posting here. It definitely would be a great loss.
Now of course, this site seems to generate and thrive on incredible levels of snark so I'm sorry if this embarrasses you, Matt
- here's the obligatory no homo yada yada etc etc carry on now all you SF lifers who won't give a shit if he leaves...
