I just opened the thread without any problem (noticed that you replied to it just 7 days ago on March 17). Any problems are on YOUR END not on the CH site end. Have you cleared your browser cache lately?
I can open it too. I agree that the problems are on your end. They are probably related to the power (memory and/or processor speed) of the computer you are using, as previously explained in http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/693241
I note that bigtuna27 seems to have resolved his problems with opening the "Ask Sushi Man" thread and is back posting to it...I wonder what got the thread to open for him? Maybe I should just "Ask Sushi Man?" ;-D>
