As has already been mentioned, one can easily sign up for a yahoo or hotmail account and then sign up for a styleforum account. Â Requiring members to use an email address from their own ISPs or place of employment instead of an account from yahoo, hotmail, etc is not good. I don't think that Marc should be made a scapegoat for the sometimes heated exchanges. Â Of what Marc says, believe what you want and ignore the rest. Â Marc has quite a bit of experience with clothing in general and bespoke clothing specifically. Â He seems to have learned some things the hard way, spending quite a bit for what sometimes turned out to be of lesser quality than he expected when he placed an order. Â Maybe Marc ruffled a few feathers. Â After all, writers always seem to use superlatives when writing about people like Jon Green, William Fioravanti, Mimmi Spano, and others. Â These writers sometimes write nonsensical things which we, mostly laypeople, could have written properly. Â In addition, he brought up the issue of conflict of interest when writers receive free or discounted clothing from a person whom they are writing about. Â Much of what quite a few people believe is little more than what manufacturers, agents and salespeople feed them as part of a sales campaign. Â It is up to us to discover the truth by our own experiences and by consulting other people knowledgeable on the topic of clothes. Â What Marc sometimes says based on hearsay for which he has no concrete evidence, try to find out yourself if you're that interested. Â Even Steve, who initially was in denial that other writers would accept "gifts" in exchange for writing positive articles, softened his stance when he heard from someone else that it is common practice among certain circles. If anything, to satisfy you maybe Marc could be somewhat more "diplomatic" about some of the things he says, but so could many of us.
