1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I saw someone doing this yesterday and thought to myself, "This is the dumbest person in America."

    A common meal at home when we were kids was a couple of burgers (no bun), potatoes and vegetables - just another meat & two veg.

    Assuming you were at a fast food restaurant when you observed this sacrilege, perhaps you should include yourself as part of this group too?

    Given the fact that burgers in some places have grown to absurd sizes, I sometimes leave the top bun. But completely without the bun seems rather pointless to me.

    Agreed. A few years ago when I was a server at one of the local country clubs there were a handful of people who did that, I think it's Atkins. Most of them were obese.

    I usually take off the bottom bun. Most of the time its soaked through anyway.

    Conne, once you pass 35 you'll understand this seemingly strange practice.

    About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease, an intolerance for wheat and gluten. This would account for some people choosing a burger without the bun.

    My two teenage children have CD and would much sooner be having the bun instead of using a knife and fork.

    They opened an m:brgr in Toronto not too long ago, I gave it a try last week. They have the "lettuce-as-a-bun" option there.

    FWIW, m:brgr is overrated. And its a strange location, way out near Spadina on King. At the price point they have, its way too far from the Bay street crowd. Place is new and was practically empty at lunch time.
