I just find it interesting. I am sure it is not shill posting but the fact that people just love these bags and like to join so they can discuss them.
I thought that was....questionable when I bought my bag, too. Then I bought it, and totally got 'it.'

I have found it useful for this info. However, most of the topics on the forum seem to be about things that I find trivial like designer clothes from companies with along italian names that command high prices so people in big cities can name drop. The few products that Id actually be interested like durable leather goods tend to start off as review threads and digress into conversations that sound (to me) like those had by women talking about shoes and handbags, so Ive stopped visiting the forum other than to update this threadd yesterday.
Well, not everyone is a name-dropping trend whore on SF!! But of course we have them. A hige contingent of SF members are college students looking for the best products on fairly meager budgets (though we also have college students in Porsches, too). Anyway, your review was very decent; hope you find something worth sticking around for. ~ H
