A question from a new Chowhound

Creamfinger | Feb 8, 200201:20 AM     7

I'm kinda new to Chowhound. It seems like there is a lot of great info (and people) here. Despite that, I have been hesitant (almost scared actually) to post my questions.

After spending some time reading recent threads, I noticed a consistent theme. It seems that if you post a question that has ever been addressed before in the history of the site, you'll get pounced on. Being new here, this is a mystery to me. Don't restaurants change? or go out of business? Don't new ones open? Don't opinions change?

I can certainly understand that some threads might appear very often and might seem repetitve, but why be nasty? If the thread was recent, post a link, if it wasn't, well perhaps the topic's worth revisting.

I guess my question is simple. Shouldn't any vaild, well intentioned question or comment be welcome here?

Food related posts to follow... I hope.
