Chow Reviews on Message Boards

Miss Priss | Sep 17, 2013 10:44 AM

Locked "CHOW Reviews" recently started showing up on the message boards that I check most often: Cookware and Home Cooking. Don't know about others, but I feel that this practice undermines the purpose and spirit of a message board, which should be a place for user-generated discussions - not a place for management-selected (and mostly staff-written) reviews of new products. When I want to read those, I'll go the the "product review" section of the site. Embedding them in user discussions strikes me as a particularly intrusive and annoying form of advertising, and I hope this change will be reconsidered.
