Dirty talk rules foodie website

Just like the real world, addictions online revolve around three basic evils: sex, money and food. And while not too many people will brag about their porn or online gambling jones, several friends of mine boast with glee about their daily visits to Chowhound.com.

A giant bulletin board posted by people across the country, it consists of totally biased and opinionated takes on local restaurants, with tons of misspellings and long-winded entries. The "hounds" obsess on funny things -- the thread labeled "West Broward bagels" on the Florida page started May 29 and is already so long it runs off the side of the page.

But it has become a foodie haven, full of suggestions for new places to eat in unknown cities, so if you're heading for a business trip or leisurely getaway to Los Angeles or Chicago and want good food, Chowhound.com is a fun place to start looking.
