Why is it you can't write karma loop either?

Hordes of affiliate spammers.

Okay just noticed it the other day while referencing them.

I feel like Ralph Lauren usually have a few pairs of moleskin pants each year.

If you don't mind sharing, could you tell us how he's being sleazy? Would like to avoid using his site if he's up to shady stuff.

Mainly, he started off sleazy. He built a user base by using the pm system of many forums, which is against everyone's ToS, for obvious reasons. Then, being a hypocrite, he puts out a DCMA against a competitor. Then, is starts to ban or censure his users for things they said in pm, which, despite his denials, he could not have known without reading the content.

Judge for yourself.

Bought a pair of those Freeman's in olive actually, rather lightweight which might end up being good for LA.

 

I know they are far from the hippest of brands, but J.Peterman actually stocks a pretty high quality moleskin trouser. Made in Portugal, thick cotton fabric, traditional fit. Wait for a sale and these can be had for about $100.

 

Edit: had to add the copy

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

"Moleskin trousers are what you might see on a man driving a 27-year-old tractor, purring along over the velvety-green groundswells of England, lost in thought, totally unaware that soft rain has been falling on his head for a good 40 minutes.

(Is he working out a scheme to recapture his seat in Parliament? Composing a piece of stubborn music? Mentally laying out a new field of crops? We’ll never know.)"

What about banning the term Kitchen Ace or a combination of the words online live sports streaming?
post #100854 of 109053
Sometimes I stream live sports online though, which is the truth and not spam
post #100855 of 109053
The word kitchen for posters with less than 10 posts wouldn't be a bad idea.

We can only ban words for all users, sitewide. We've tried doing this, actually, but bots don't care, and real live spammers are too smart, for it to be any type of deterrent.

I spend about 45 min a day on spam duty...

How much does it help to have reported/flagged posts?

 

probably a question directed at @dieworkwear in particular (and probs better for the CM crowd) but can anyone comment on O'Connell's Shetland sweaters  (particularly how they fit and how "shaggy" they are)? Been looking for an alternative to my Rugby one (I really miss rugby, didn't realize how much I'd want from them until it was too late), and I'm considering one over a used Schneider knit around the same price just because I like my wooly shetlands a lot more. I just don't want to justify $250 for a jpress one or something.

My mother has similar issues, although she has another bank and is using XP and Chrome.

Yeah banks need to run Java because it is good when you have a lot of data to deal with. It's odd that your browser asks for it to run everytime. I believe its a browser security setting, the only time I ever encounter the issue. Check if you can whitelist the bank site and save the setting to allow for it to run in your browser.

What about revamping the SF marketplace since we are on the topic. The only reason I like grailed is because it's easy to filter items and designers/brands.

They're not that shaggy. They're just regular Shetlands, although Shetland is always going to be a little more textured than a smooth Merino or cotton.

I think they're fairly slim fitting. I took a size 38 and the chest measures 20" across. Note, some of the new colors are sized differently, I've found. You could always ask the store if they can give you a measurement of the chest for some specific color you're interested in.
