Since I don’t want to contribute more than I already have to thread drift, here’s my final take (for now). It’s not like I have a perfect memory of all of catholiver’s posts, but my recollection is that, even when she was writing comments that others took as judgmental, they were still related fundamentally to food and/or the OP’s original question (or at least adjacent to the original question).
What I see in response, though, are pointed and direct personal attacks. And I don’t really see a difference between personally-directed snark and bullying.
Please don’t think I’m aiming these comments specifically at you, @thechez5. And thank you for having the guts to say what you think in an unambiguous way. It’s just that there’s enough vile behavior in the “real” world that I’m hoping we can all treat each other on FTC a bit better, perhaps?
