As we all know, Chowhound is pretty strict about geographic boundaries with discussions. Of course there is sometimes blurring, but this is allowed more as a slight variation within a reply than as a premise.
Recently, someone started a thread (I'm being vague about where, since I'd like a broader discussion, and besides I think I'm not permitted to write here directing to a specific other thread) on a geographic board specifically asking for recommendations for outside that geographic area. The OP wants the opinions of people from his area, not from the area(s) where he's considering eating.
What do you all think about this? Should it be okay? To be fair, the OP wants responses about a broader geographic area than any one board would embrace. To me, that means several inquiries on several boards--not exactly a hardship!
