In addition, while we might not all get along and we may have very different points of view , more than nacissism, insecurity, or lack of self awareness...I see a level of comradery that I don't often see on other forums. People genuinely are excited and happy for others when they learn of a newly acquired a piece that may have special meaning (wedding/anniversary/birthday gift) or a piece that someone had long wanted and finally obtained, or even just an exciting spur of the moment kop. We may all have different tastes in watches, however there is generally an outpouring of good wishes and excitement for the person.
Seriously? A chilling effect? As compared to calling another forum participant "an asshole"?
I generally have a great deal of respect for your input to this thread, but I respectfully disagree with you on this one. I think some folks may have been quick to jump on the latter part of my comment without considering the context of my statement as a whole. But not everyone...
