      The General Topics thread "What did your Mom have on hand that you never do?" thread currently has 942 responses. Don't know if that's the highest, but it's getting up there.

        Come to think of it, the ongoing "Ask Sushi Man" in the General Topics has been broken up into 3-4 separate OP's just to make the conversation easier to access. Collectively, those are well into the thousand post mark by now.

          If you don't mind me asking what exactly was that link/site you had in your first response? I took a look at it but really had no idea what it was telling me. (It looks very impressive though!!)

            LOL, Board reader has many functions but the specific link I offered shows the activity of a forum like Chowhound on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. Stats and highlights of the forum. The data use to be far more detailed than it is now without a log in. If you register, you'll see more detail.

            I use it for all sorts of info I need at a glance for tracking work assignments.

              I just got done reading about a half hours worth of that "Ask the Sushi Man" original thread on the General Topics board. That is some funny stuff!!! Because of his typing in broken english I have a Mr. Miyagi dialog going on in my head as I read his responses.

              One thing that did catch me is how many people start trying to "attack" or "object" to his answers on different topics. I just don't understand certain peoples insisting that they can only be right on certain topics. Why can't people just enjoy the open exchange of ideas and if they have a difference of opinion state it but stop trying to prove your more right than the next guy!!

              Thanks HillJ !!!!

                My pleasure, jrv. Thank goodness Sushi Man can handle it. His generosity is hard to ignore and I find his skill with people half the lesson.
