[Split from http://www.chowhound.com/topics/532815]
I didn't realize until today, while reading thru a CHOW/Manners thread about dining out with kids, that posters are given a greater latitude in CHOW. Strong comments, off topic rants and louder discourse seems to be completely acceptable with no report/reply button in sight.
I wonder why CHOW topics are moderated differently than Chowhound and why potentially insulting to down right rude comments that prevail in CHOW wind up as topics in Chowhound threads like this. Especially when many of the same 'hounds post in both community areas. Curious.
