How many people here have been banned from Chowhound? I’ve seen a couple of mentions.
I got a note from some CBS employee that posting about this site was a violation of the guidelines and that if I did it again I’d be banned.
That’s a lie about the guidelines, though. Since the announcement a while back that CBS was “inviting the industry to the discussion” or whatever, they have had had no problem with people promoting other sites or their blogs or whatever so long as it was in the context of a discussion and not just spam.
