FWIW - now the main page says I am "wsoublo" - perhaps that is my secret identity? ;)

The main page

Does not show I am logged in. When I click any subforum I am logged in.

Thought you should know.

I was wondering if anyone had been contacted yet to confirm they are signed up to judge?

If my daughter was dating someone just like me I'd shoot him.

Staples posted the statement below on FB about an hour ago.
We heard you! At Staples, we value all of our customers and appreciate your feedback. We now realize the rules of our Push It Forward contest were too restrictive and kept out legitimate businesses. Unfortunately, we can't change the rules once the contest is underway. But we will revise our rules to make sure future contests are more inclusive and reflect our commitment to helping all small businesses.

I guess what is innovative is a magnet to hold the cap. Still is just an opener.

I saw another one earlier which had a magnet to hold it to the fridge. Kinda had the same feeling about it.

Ooops, let me correct myself. I should have never said no resource. That statement was shown to be in error.

A blogger suggests coffee is served too hot and a mechanical engineer has a publication suggesting it is served too hot based on scald potential.

A recent survey shows...  ;D

- -

As far as 170-175, I have to agree there or even slightly cooler is where coffee may be by the time it touches someones lips. Add in creamer and it could be even colder. Also ice could be added.

But I believe the topic on point is Hot Coffee without all the fluff and the National Coffee Association and the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) both suggest serving temperatures in excess of 170F. So I'll change my statement from "no resource", to no major acknowledged association who deals exclusively in coffee suggests it be served at any less than 170F.  8)

Let's be clear about hot liquids and scalding time.
140F at 3 seconds exposure is 2nd degree burns

160F water is 1/2 a second

Here you can see how the temp rise increases the danger.

FWIW - no resource ever suggests coffee should be served at any less than 170F, optimum is what I stated earlier, 180-185F.

So it would somehow be in bad taste for a commercial to appear which was sponsored by Staples and had a small startup brewery?

I just cannot stand stuff like this. PayPal has some asinine practices as well as Square. Google as well. Luckily I only use PP for sending money using a Credit Card, I have no use for Square and Google is free. However Staples is a place I spend money and I can spend money elsewhere. ;)

Coffee should be maintained at 180-185F.

It's not mine anymore. Staples had a contest for a marketing campaign and a small business applied and got the following email response.
Entry contains content that promotes alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearms/weapons (or the use of any of the foregoing); promotes any activities that may appear unsafe or dangerous; promotes any particular political agenda or message; is obscene or offensive; or endorses any form of hate or hate group.

Up until I read that I had used Staples as my office supply more.

The problem with the McD's case is that the coffee wasn't hot like you'd expect - it was scalding hot, far above drinkable temps because management had decided to serve it that hot (180-190F) so that the coffee would still be "piping" when the average commuter would finish their commute. They had been warned hundreds of times about the danger and liability of this policy and still refused to change the temp. That's what got them hit so hard.

(Seriously.. near boiling?)

Yes, seriously near boiling. I don't brew my coffee with warm water and you don't either. The recommendation is 195-205F with 200F being optimum.

Just sayin'... ;)
