I wonder if Steve, a/k/a “Nothing’s Really Changed”, is still there. Oh, wait, he’s still carrying their water in the humor that made him famous: http://www.chowhound.com/post/based-latest-observation-development-site-decimated-1034276
I confess I have been responding to some threads there. My sense is that even the greybeards who stayed loyal to CH aren’t posting new threads–they just respond to the newbs who can’t/won’t use the search function.
Another funny thing that’s happening is that many threads there go seriously OT–as in, “Hey, this profiteroles thread is great, anyone have a tajine?” I find this deliciously ironic, given CH’s prior merciless pursuit and removal of ANY OT subject, humorous aside or tangential reference. Either no one’s following their North Korean-style snitching protocol, or CH has decided a click is just a click after all.
The King Is Dead. Long Live the King!
