Yup. As do I- no hate just observations.

@ In Stitches your point is well made ... Except these are opinions about a poster's online personality, not his knowledge, and thus are IMO equally valid. Clearly many SF veterans seem to revere him for great pics and good advice, which was not in evidence more recently, hence some newer members not being so impressed.

In any event I find hero worship by any grown men a bit nauseating and some of the admiration shown on this board definitely crosses that line. I would also say that I've met quite a few people IRL through online forums (fora?) and no matter what their online personality may have been like they have all seemed to me to be solid citizens. Anyway I've had enough of this, time to let it go.

What I do recall is what I posted above. He was the Dennis Miller of this board. In so much hurry to demonstrate his hilarious wit and self perceived intelligence any value in what he had to say was lost. Whenever I saw him contribute to a thread it almost always caused me to groan inwardly and very rarely offered anything germane to the point being discussed. I have to wonder if before my time he was some kind of maven who drowned in jealousy once a significant chunk of igents found their way to this board and were able to approach and even eclipse his own level. Now I do miss lufty and his vintage choices, and haven't seen many of TC's classy cuts lately.
Vox used to be a prolific poster, and there were several outstanding pictures of his outfits and style. Unfortunately, just before F. Corbera made an appearance, he pretty much took down all his pictures. I believe Steed's image gallery still contains some of his pictures (the ones with his face masked out). Say what you will, the man had keen wit and his intelligence was anything but "perceived". I particularly miss those posts when the likes of Vox would expound upon interesting trivia or adventures, sartorial or otherwise, accompanied by photographs (the Swiss Army Suit or the anatomy of the 7 fold tie come to mind). Moreover, Vox had some wonderful insights into certain places and times in our society (the gilded age comes to mind) that was very educational. It was far from hero worship -- it was admiration, plain and simple, of a well dressed and well rounded man with the intellectual prowess to match. It's not often that one stumbles upon such. At least not on these boards.

Truth -

What goes up, must go down.

You gotta be like a lasbar or rss around these parts to sustain.

I know people are going to knock me down for this, but, I definitely like Vox's posts and his style. Most of us can go on and on about the quality of his posts and knowledge and extensive outfits and how much he has helped us improve our style, or fits or whatnot, but I think threads like this, to some degree, is why he isn't here (as much) anymore. It isn't offering anything to many of the big guns anymore, and many of them are jaded by these dick sucking threads. It is good and fun from time to time, the dick sucking, but this place can be as bad as any other celebrity gossip site. Does this thread really need an undying 8 page circle jerk? Can we get back to the roots?
