Have a restaurant or nightlife question that you'd like the Eater readership to tackle? Send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org and it may just get the "Ask Eater" treatment.
Today's Ask Eater letter comes from the owner of Bespoke Chocolates, Rachel Zoe Insler. Let's see if we can get to the bottom of this:
"I'm pretty sure that my less-than-a-week-old, hidden-in-an-unmarked-alley independently owned artisanal chocolate shop with no PR has been banned on chowhound. um...what? sigh.Thoughts, answers welcome in the comments.
I was excited when a few people mentioned to me that they loved my chocolate and were going to post about it on chowhound, but....nothing. I finally asked a friend to do a (totally honest, but yes, positive) test post and yup....deleted. I've been a chowhound reader and occasional poster myself for years, but now chowhound and I are officially breaking up. I don't *want* to care, but it's a resource i know lots of people use.....so....does anyone know how to get unbanned?"
