  1. I had no problem opening the thread, it does have 513 replies and takes a bit longer than average to load in my browser. I think you need to accept the fact that any problem you have opening it is related to your own computer and connection.

    I also think you ought to consider starting a new thread if you want to continue the discussion, a thread with 513 replies is the exception and has probably outlived itself. If you have a "calling" to educate the public about Sushi you might also consider starting your own blog dedicated to Sushi, then instead of one very long, unwieldy thread on Chowhound, you could post numerous articles on all aspects of the appreciation of Sushi, and spur any number of dialogues through the blog commenting system.

    Please consider, your multiple, strident alarms about your inability to access the thread is starting to take on a life of its own, and not in a good way.

      I have to say, I'm beginning to think there's something fishy about the Big Tuna... ;-D>

      1. Here's the problem. To quote your posting in Facebook

        "ASK SUSHI MAN is the extendion of the blog I have on Chowhound. join me to exchange review or Q&A. Let's have fun."

        Mods, maybe someone can contact him through his Facebook account and explain how a chowhound thread should not be treated as a blog? I'd comment on his Fan page but that would require becoming a fan and really I don't want to be one.

          Oh good lord! he actually has a link on his facebook page driving people to that thread. Good intentions but I think wrong methods.

            No wonder the stridency in his "problem reports". Note, Chowhound is NOT a blog, it's a discussion forum, big difference.

            Sushi Man: if you want to create a blog pay a visit to or If you create a real blog you will have total control of it's content, and layout, and it would enable you to categorize topics and create individual pages devoted to specific topics.

            Here are a couple of blog examples:

              >> Oh good lord! he actually has a link on his facebook page driving people to that thread

              So the link there may be causing many of the huge number of posts in that topic.

              And the huge number of posts in that topic make it impossible for his (her?) computer to open the topic, possibly because of the computer's limited memory and/or processor speed.

              So he/she is responsible for the inability to read the topic. What goes around...
