Dear Boston Chowhounds,
I want to thank the dedicated core of Boston Chowhounds who are so civilized, polite and eager to help wayward diners. I recently had a terrible experience with the NYC board. It seems that they refuse to respond to requests for advice - although the board was not swamped and traffic is slow. They might have more restaurants and food to chose from but they don't have the enthusiasm that is displayed on the Boston page.
