Chowhound can ban commenters and delete comments all they want on their side of the tracks. Over here, we've pledged to to give those spurned by Jim Leff a voice, in this series, tagged The Lost Posts. In this edition of The Lost Posts, Volume II, to be exact, we encounter the story of Mara's Homemade. STATUS: Inexplicably Banned, Foul Play Suspected.
The Story: Recently a thread popped up on chowhound about Mara's Homemade; the question was "I'm going here on Saturday night, and the menu looks so big and everything looks good. What should I get?"
The first responder said, "You should get. . . . your party to go to somewhere else" and the second responder said "hahahaha. I've been there once and it was just ehhh..." I posted, "I agree with the above two. I thought it was overpriced and the owners very pushy." Only a few hours later, the posting disappeared...
One thing to note is that if you do a search on 'Mara' on the Manhattan chowhound board, you don't really get any negative interviews. Another interesting note is that Mara's Homemade responds to a large number of the negative reviews on citysearch. Perhaps the owners like to make sure that any negative reviews on chowhound are removed?
