post #10426 of 15051
I asked that that conversation be stopped, I am trying to be lenient as j has asked. So I won't delete it but I will delete it if people keep at it.

So far the only stuff I have deleted was totally OT crap or else cruiser-ific comments like 'Oh, how silly, this is all one man's opinion, wear whatever you want." If that's all you have to say, best to be silent, and if you can't manage that, I will shut you up.

Btw, that is a great thread but has cost me money! I will be getting a blue odd coat with my spring 2013 order. Also, consider adding a complete formal Highland suit to the essentials list. smile.gif

Btw, an idea to help us sartorial lightweights...make up outfits from the essentials list. For instance, I own a pair of AE suede loafers, and suede loafers are on the list in your OP. What sort of outfit would you wear those with? Or maybe a new thread for "Essentials Ensembles?"

Now that the conversation has been had and stood for a bit so the participants could read it, I suggest you delete it as part of thread housekeeping. It really has no value as archival material.

Speaking of the Red Flag: Instead of calling it the "snitch button", I'd rather think of it as "Quality Control". Not that we can really enforce Quality Poasting, but still, it alerts the relevant mods to the post and is easier than scrolling though the thread.
BTW, re: that thread, I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first 10 pages and then it passed me by. The last couple of pages (including the flagged post) seemed OT and if I were Manton (or another DH member), I would have hacked away those last couple of pages (at least!) and not lost a moment's sleep. To me, if you're posting in a DH-started thread then please bring your A-game or relevant questions to the discussion or stay on the sidelines. Just my opinion, though.

We simply can't see every post in every thread, so I'm sure there's a lot that deserves moderation but slips through the cracks. By flagging it, you make sure at least one of us takes a look at it.

Thanks -- been around since '07 and never even noticed that thing.

This site still has so many virgins. I haven't even gone in SW&D and H&B for a while and they still seem to be everywhere.

What exactly is the purpose of this comment, especially in the Moderation thread?

Sorry, I haven't been around very much.

Anyone have a link to the Javyn saga?

like actual virgins? do you have proof to this? or do you mean that figuratively? if so, what exactly are you referring to?

you're a class act pio, although a reformed one :-)
