Tip #7- Mentioning Chowhound


@NotJrvedivici JR is going for the jugular.

We need to recruit Viking, LCDsoundsystem and metsfan…all red bank area guys.

Well CJ since I “recruited” you, I recommend you as the recruiter for them! Do it CJ Do it !!!

Did you try that tomahawk at Woody’s?

I’ll mention Chowhound one more time, this time though with a purpose. Anyone else notice the memorial thread to Veggo (God Bless my friend) was bumped up again. Not that there is anything wrong with that but look at the posting history of the two people who bumped it up. Explain that to me.


Anecdotally, I see more activity on my feed here than on CH. The most active thread on CH is the complaints thread

They have a complaints thread? I don 't see much happening over there. I see posts from several years ago being resurrected but there are no comments on anything for days.

(Junior) #26

Site Talk board has several complaint threads, many of which were locked and directed to a “Feeback” thread which is 99.99% complaints.


I used to refer to Chowhound for years. All of a sudden, I thought it 'went off the air." It was so different and seems like an experiment as it changes on-the-fly. I signed up there a few weeks ago but again….they are changing navigation.

They can keep it in experimental mode. I’ll try this place.

Incredible, ain’t it? I was quite used to being beaten around the head (figuratively, of course) if I dared take the name of Chowhound in vain.

BOY, am I glad there is a pointer to this place this morning - for however long it lasts.


As you know, Veggo and I were friends. I’m gonna check this out. Thanks for mentioning.


Can’t find what you’re referring to. Can you provide a link please?

I’m not NotJr, but I believe this is the thread to which he was referring:

I noticed this thread was bumped on Chowhound,

So I broke my self-imposed ban from posting on that site to give a Hungry Onion shoutout. Who knows how long it will stay.


Thanks. That’s legit. I remember when he and Veggo met for lunch.

(Gwenn) #34

I threw in a mention on another topic and a couple of people came over and the post has been there for days. They are slipping!

( :@)) :@)) ) #35

I did see it earlier. They will probably remove your reply when they return from lurking on here :smile_cat:

(John Hartley) #36

They’ll presumably kill my mention at same time as your mention.

(kg) #37

It will be interesting to see if/how long they remain. After all, the thread was begun long before the upheaval and is titled “what other food sites do you frequent.”


hungry onion, hungry onion,hungry onion,merry x-mas
ho,ho,ho merry x-mas
guess ho,ho,ho makes more sense (even if it is the lazier way):grin:

(Gwenn) #39

They haven’t killed mine yet!

Isn’t it amazing? Guess even the despotic imperialists at Chowhound recognize that the ship is sinking.

Karma is a beautiful thing, ain’t it?:grin:
