He trolled really hard and was a huge dick in several threads. For the past year+ or so, but recently made some especially personal comments. That's how.

Links?

 

He didn't post those pics of himself in long socks, shorts, and Band-Aid-coloured, ostrich leather shoes again, did he??

Awesome, so awesome. It looks terrific.

Nice, but seems way over price consider its not a full set with box and papers.  The Rolex box they are supplying (at least according to photos) isn't period correct.  This dealer is about an hour from me and people speak well of them in general.  I have been there a few times and overall the are pleasant, but I've never purchased anything there.

Same here.  Other than this thread and few select others, I don't follow much of SF these days.  I remembered Foo could get a bit over the top, but I thought in recent posts he had changed and he was much more pleasant to interact with, at least on this thread.  Oh well, hopefully we will see his next watch once his "Vacation" ends.

I think we are talking about Moo, but ironically, I believe all of your comments are equally applicable to Foo except that he is not on "vacation". LOLLLL

I also enjoy that this thread actually has meaningful content and knowledge contributions. The other CM threads have devolved into an orgy of OMGmustkop and really irritating and repetitive jokes/bantering from unfunny people. We've always had snark and inside jokes on SF, but it was easier to take it when it was actually funny, and/or came from people who made substantial contributions in other ways

I wouldn't say I contribute too much in terms of knowledge in this thread as Dino takes the cake on that but I plug some thoughts in here or there.

I looked at CM for the first time in many months and was surprised to see the number of Official Affiliate Threads. Still I suppose the site needs to earn a buck or two.

Oops bad typo...although I suppose the same could have been said about each of them at one point.  ;)

Yeah, to be clear, I don't either, so sometimes I'm reluctant to criticize.

I also enjoy the fact that we haven't adopted the uncle/nephew thing here.
