Reporting Back On Your Question Posts - [moved from General Topics]

michele cindy | Jun 18, 2008 05:38 AM

I find it very frustrating when someone posts a question on Chowhound and then get a ton of recommendations or advice, and then never reports back on the results of their query. It drives me crazy. I often think that many of these posts are writers just fishing around for stories or who knows what. Granted something may have happened to that person and they can't write back, but this seems it would be a rare occurrence.
Here's a post that exhibits one scenerio of what I am talking about. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/489087 This person posted one question, 82 replies later they never replied back. Looking up their handle this was the 1st and only time this person ever posted to Chowhound. I could read a lot into their motivation, but looking back their initial motivation seems phony and not the real reason why they were posting the question. The upside is that it did provide for a lot of interesting advice and stories.
I just wish people would get back to the board and let us know what they ended up doing. Did they go to any of the restaurants suggested? Did they cook any of the dishes suggested? Etc.
