Apparently, since I am new I am not allowed to deviate from topics. Or post items like PRL, BB, and other items that are not truly grail. But are acceptable for others.
By the way, I became a member of this site back in 2005 or 2006. A short time after it started. However, I took sometime away from the site. Earlier this year when tried use my old account information I realized that I had lost the login information in my move to a new home. The email account I established my id was through a packaged service that I used to have with Verizon FIOS. So, I had to start over.
I only state this because I've been away from the site for a few years. And much has changed. I am just learning and understanding how things work now.
And I am not angry or made. In fact this is a learning moment for me.
I think there are two major things that you have done repeatedly that has annoyed quite a few people (I almost blocked you a few days ago). First you were posting common stuff, like ecco shoes, non-shell J&M and Bostonians, and London Fog raincoats. These are a dime a dozen and are nothing to brag about, just as an exercise when I was in my GW the other day I counted 37 London Fog raincoats. Don't be embarrassed about what you pick up, but we don't need a blow by blow of every single thing you do during your day (even though I have been guilty of this as well). It feels too much like those mothers on Facebook who give you an intimate account of potty training their child. Don't care and I don't want to know about it!
Second, you really need to learn to use the Spoiler functionality. You have replied to gigantic posts with the entire post just to say thank you instead of spoilering the 99% of it you were not replying to. Also if you have noticed, most people will post 1 picture of an item and spoiler more detailed shots, while you were posting 6 or 7 shots of the same item with no spoiler.
Finally, nobody is beating on you personally they are just trying to moderate the thread so everyone new doesn't blow up the thread. I hope you continue to post, I love this thread and read it off and on all day long so the more people posting interesting stuff the better.
