I really wish people would not recommend restaurants where they haven't eaten.

I don't see this frequently but often enough. A CH is looking for a restaurant in (I'm making this all up, of course) Tupelo, MS, that serves sweetbreads. Another CH googles and finds a resto in said town that serves said dish and posts that info. BUT - and this is where my objection comes - s/he does NOT post that he's not been there, he's know noone who's been there, that he just did a search and found the above info. So CH#1 goes there, has awful sweetbreads and after that other CHs see the first two posts and say, "oh no, that's an awful place in Tupelo,MS, to get sweetbreads." So PLEASE be very clear when you don't know JACK about a place. Okay? It's the kind thing.
PS: I know most of us feel that anyone should be able to do a simple search but it's not our job to make their lives difficult if they don't or didn't.
PPS: I spent one night in Tupelo, MS, in 1976 and love using the name :)
