Chowhound purge?

I tried to log into Chowhound to look for a review I posted and it’s not recognizing my password. I can’t find the review on a general search either. Have they purged the archives? It was a great review.

I recognize you in person in case you need validation. :grinning:


I’d be happy to try to find it for you - I’ve been successful in all of my own searches. Just tell me what to look for, and what your user name is on Chowhound.

I found a review I posted in 2005 (missing quite a bit of punctuation but otherwise intact) so they have not purged the archives completely anyway. Hopefully you can find yours!

Thank you! Smalls! Same name as I recall, and it was a review of St.John Bread and Wine in London. I was watching a very old Chef’s Tour episode last night in which Bourdain interviews Fergus Henderson and I wanted to see what I ordered at one of his restaurants. They both looked so young.

Wow, that was quick? Did you search on phone or computer?

Laptop. Searched for the restaurant name, narrowed search by user name, figured out that user name was case sensitive, bam.

Ah, case sensitive explains everything! Thank you!!

Often you can google old posts faster than the chow hound search function.
