Ah! True motives?

Yes, I responded to chogall just as I responded to you. I didn't broach the subject here, however. There is a difference.

That said, I generally follow the conversation where it leads...where it leads me, as well.

There are no forum police and I'm not offering myself as a candidate.

PS...FYI, I often do chide myself quite severely for allowing myself to get sucked into what I intuitively, but no less certainly, know is a troll.

I guess, I hope, it's simply a matter of wanting to believe in the fundamental rationality and good will of people who ask me questions...despite all evidence to the contrary.

Only stated that because I thought you accused me of trolling by bringing GYW here - as I knew it had been mentioned a few moments ago I popped it in here and Gentleman's Gazette has a section on shoes and shoe care as well as style/fashion, thought people might like a look.

Well, it just seems like more of the same-same from the last couple of days. Regardless of who or how it got started.

After a while I get suspicious.

No worries, I just thought the folks on here would be interested - for better or worse most  of us own GYW shoes.

It is a good web site, what I've read so far - nice article on polo shirts and their history.

You now, that's another story. It didn't take but a "moment in time" to provoke you into an argumentum ad hominem and loss of control. And I wasn't even trying-- I didn't call names or question your character or use coarse language.

I'm not provoked, nor am I not in control. im offering a viewpoint on how I see people being needlessly upset over nothing. I would say that my last post was not aimed directly at you, I just worded it incorrectly.

I don't think "bloody" is particularly tipping the profanity scales as there are far better insidious words available should I have wanted to curse, sometimes a more "direct" wording punctuates a sentiment more than a meandering essay filled with flowery nonsense.

No? Yet it was a personal attack despite your suspiciously convenient disclaimer. Is the whole world supposed to "grow up?" Or "get a life?"

If so, I am greatly relieved as at 69 years of age I'd hate to have to learn to suck eggs all over again.

FWIW, I've got no issue with "bloody" and in general don't call anyone out for their way of speaking or their choice of words.

I was pointing out the similarity between your response and Travers response. He seems positively canty by comparison esp. when you consider how long he endured...as compared to you, for instance.

I thought you might be able to gain a little perspective and a little charity seeing the similarity.

We used to get the original finish off DM's with solvent and then mix oxblood and black together by burning them to get liquid and then spit and shine them all over - used to play havoc with your jeans as oxblood bleeds like a bitch :angry:

I don't see any similarity.

Of course not. Why am I not surprised?
