@Lin A lot of your replies seem to be highly strung and strongly worded, as if there is more to the issue. Your original post raised some fair issues, which as you say were addressed by Nancy, and accepted well. Fair play.
Wondering if Mamma Dough have any feelings on the matter, I would say is more an issue to be taken up directly with themselves, maybe emailing them to get their opinion on it. The threads intention is to inform the community about a new business opening, and what they will offer. They have taken on board suggestions from other uses in this thread.
As I said before, when quoting the earlier replies in the thread which you had not seen, there was a fair bit of back and forth about the choice of cuisine for the Chandos, but with the kitchen installed, and the opening coming up, there is no scope for change.
With regards to @Pauline and her status in the community, it is unfair for her to comment openly about such matters, especially on a hypothetical situation.
In short, I think the discussion is heading way off topic right now, and would encourage you to continue it on a new thread, with an over all scope of the community and competing businesses, rather than spot lighting one established and loved, and one about to embark on a new venture.
How people perceive other peoples replies is a personal thing, you possibly read mine in a context in which it is not intended, I may be doing the same.
To clarify my point, this topic is about the refitting and opening of the Chandos,
Discussion about business ethics as a whole should be dealt with separately
Hope that clears things up a bit.
