Bucky kindly sent me a list of the Dining@Large entries that have gotten the most comments. There's a weird kind of fascination to it. Some are posts you would expect to get a lot of discussion, like Best Crab Houses. Others just blew me away, like the fact that RANCH DRESSING is in the No. 1 position. Now that's strange:
10/24/08 - I (Heart) Ranch Dressing (165 comments)
7/10/08 - Sandwich Musings (150), about what people like on their sandwiches
5/28/08 - Beef Fat Again Already (143). We guessed the mystery product from the ingredients.
6/3/08 - Top Ten Crab Houses (137)
2/5/08 - Top Ten Locations We Miss Terribly (131)
11/18/08 - Top 10 Places To Get Fabulous French Fries (121)
1/06/09 - Top 10 Restaurants the Baltimore Area Needs (115)
1/9/09 - Pecan Someone Your Own Size, Bucky (113). Food puns
6/05/08 - Crab-tastic Fun From You Know Who (106), another mystery product
8/22/08 - It's that time again ... the next Top 10 (101), asking for Top 10 topics
readers talk back
What, no foie?

I'm pretty sure an earlier french fry post was in the nineties as well.

If I remember correctly, the top-10 Diners list yielded quite a few comments as well.
