    You are so right. This is something for the boards. And it actually testifies to the value of the Chowhound boards in two ways: 1) this story is from the print magazine and wasn't updated, and so doesn't have the kind of current information the boards would offer; and 2) the subject is the kind that is well-addressed with the power of many people -- informed people -- tackling a question.

    Hey, I'm sold. No mag anymore! Brings up a bigger question, though: there is, as Melanie puts it, a place for information for a passive audience. I'd like to ask the boards (and I will, in a separate topic) if there's a better way to coordinate Chow editorial with Chowhound content. I believe that there's a place for both...but I'd like to integrate them better. If it's possible.

      No, not at all. This story gives a simple, straightforward answer from Chow.com editorial for a passive and larger audience out there that wants that. The chowhound boards don't need any more dumbing down. Keep the deadened palate Wagamama lovers at arm's length!
