3. Nattering Nabobs of Negativism: people who change ingredients and preparation and declare the worst ever. "I used bok choy in place of carrot, and roasted it instead of sauteing it, and it was TERRIBLE! I will never make this again!"

Comments to recipes generally fall into four broad categories:
1. Armchair quarterbacks: people who haven't cooked the recipe but still are compelled to offer criticism. "1 1/2 cups of sugar is way too much. It should be 1 cup."
2. Purity Police: people who rule on authenticity. "My grandmother was born in [some obscure region of Hungary] and would NEVER add tomato to this dish. So inauthentic." This is immediately followed by someone declaring the recipe "exactly like Aunt Esther made!"
