Reluctance to buy online?

Do they actually sell things in stores any more?

Amazon Prime for almost everything, Zappos for shoes and clothes and FreshDirect for groceries. Life is good.

Jewish Cooking not just Kosher

If it's not Kosher cooking you're looking to talk about, then home cooking would be the right board. It would be unwieldy to have boards for every type of cuisine.

If you quoted the entire sentence I think you'd see what it means.

In the near future, we intend to clean up some older threads that have outdated information and may confuse new or longtime users alike.

I don't know if you did anything to fix it, but it has stopped. Thanks.

It's getting out of hand. Three more times in the last five minutes.

Football during Thanksgiving dinner - am I a snob?

Great ideas by both of you. To me, nothing demonstrates class and good manners better than making a public spectacle of someone whose ettiquete does not meet your standards.

Football during Thanksgiving dinner - am I a snob?

Both of which scenarios could simply be met with "sorry,but no". If the guest said they refuse to come otherwise, that would be more of a demand.

Why does this one Post have arrows, numbers and not collapsing previously read posts?

That is the newish "question" format as opposed to the "discussion" format. You can vote answers up or down. I think it is supposed to be used for people looking for a quick answer to a question, but I don't really understand it.

Kitchen and Service Issues @ Burger Bar and Bistro

We stop there a couple of times a year on our drive back to NY from RI. We've always enjoyed our burgers, but the wait times often seem way too long and the service in general pretty hit or miss.

What's with the irrelevant photos in the "recommended" section?

Best Crepes???

I don't know about the best, but Marlene Tavern in Woodside/Sunnyside makes some very good ones. They also have a solid goulash and some tasty sausage dishes. They serve Croatian beer, which I figure you'd appreciate.

Fresca la Crepe down the block from the 61st Woodside train station probably makes better crepes but is more of a takeout place. Only a couple of seats.

Continued Feedback on Moderation Changes, and More Guidance for Bloggers

How do you have the threads sorted that the locked threads are all showing in order?

Outside of the Jim Leff thread, I'm still not seeing anything that wasn't about the changes.

Also, some of those threads were locked 10 days ago, others 2 days ago. Threads get locked all the time. But since this thread is still open, clearly they aren't locking every thread that's critical.

Actually, they all settled with Jewell. Except for the Atlanta constitution, that case was dismissed after he died.

Service Dogs Get Couple Kicked Out of Restaurant

Don't you know? There's never been a bad Christian. EVER.

WFD's equivalent on eGullet is great!

Ah, there's that higher level you were referring to. Now that I see it, it's so obvious.

By the way, I don't find snark unbecoming at all.

Don't hearing dogs need to be able to make contact with their owners? Tough to do in a stroller.

Torta Neza location...

That woodside location has been gone for a while. Didn't last very long.

Torta Neza location...

Last time I was in the neighborhood, I saw it right under the 111th st train station. That was about a month ago.

One of the threads I follow isn't collapsing the replies I've already read...

I'm afraid it is.

If I 'unfollow,' is it now just showing an outlined yellow star rather than turning grey?

Gotcha. I was just wondering if there was some consequence that I just wasn't seeing.
