Apprently Jeremy LaCroix (creative director of Chow) spoke at a panel last night and had this to say about us:
"LaCroix noted that advertisers were terrified of commenters, and didn't want to be positioned anywhere near the chatting. They prefer chow.com to chowhound.com—Chowhound is the chattiest. "Do I think most of the comments are worthless? Yes, I do," LaCroix said."
