Kosher Board Standards

PapaT | Feb 2, 2007 07:40 AM

Is it just me, or wouldn't it be great if Chowhound/Cnet actually posted a set of standards for the Kosher Board. I've noticed that threads and posts sometimes get removed from the board for reasons that are beyond my simple comprehension.

Most recent example - the guy who found "Kosher Shrimp" under the Kof K and wanted to know whether there was a mistake on the label. The entire thread was eliminated, not just the sarcastic reply of one of the posters. [I can live with the deletion of my reply to his thread, but the whole thread?] Wouldn't whether this was a mistake be something that the Kosher board would want to know about?

I've reviewed the standards on the Chowhound site but nothing seems to indicate why the whole shrimp thread should be taken down. It certainly was not obscene or threatening.

Meanwhile a thread that is labeled "Kosher Wine Sucks" can stay up.

I tried to get an answer from Chowhound by email about six months ago but no one ever answered. I'm posting this for some clarification but I fully expect it to be gone the next time I visit the site.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
