    Why not just have a multi-troll playpen, where they all can post and flame to their content, and we can pass by and see what depraved crap they're up to when we like. Wait, why does this sound familiar?

    Exactly. This place of which you speak already exists.....just not on SF.

    The Forum eradicated all the trolls and now we are Ernest-, Kalra- and Vaclav-freed. I don't know if that's a good thing.

    I never saw any of them as "trolls", just "lively characters"...after all, they did seem genuinely interested in talking about clothes. A troll I would define as someone with a malicious intent, like calling all of us homos for being clotheswhores.

    I think we have a "lively character" active right now...

    C'mon folks - the reports of SF's death are highly exaggerated. If we find ourselves bored, one answer is to start topics that are more of interest.

    JLibourel, Do you feel the same flagging @ AAAC or is it an SF thing exclusively?

    Also - we need more Manton!



    Well, I think SF itself is fine; rather, I was posting about where I am in the life-cycle of an SF member.

    My political leanings could have me posting hourly on Current Events, but I do politics for a living, so it's a bit like work.
    I'd love to post on Streetwear, but have nothing of interest to add.
    I tried posting on the music-related threads, but have ended up in a pissing contest on "Vinyl" so no fun there.
    The bank account will be depleted for the next few years, as we sock away money for the Gifted Child's college expenses, so I'm not shopping much.

    Oh, how I yearn to be on the upward slope of the learning curve! Every "Blake-stitching" thread a revelation, every "Chang suit - pics!" thread a sartorial graduate class! Every "CT-50% off" well, nevermind...

    I, too, feel marginalized around here. I, sometimes, just can't find the proper english word to really express what I mean, even though my english is decent. And there's this other problem: as a student, I don't have enough money to indulge in my sartorials envy. As a matter of fact, I don't even own a suit just yet. I am merely reading the Clothing forum to guide myself and know where/what to buy when I will actually have to money to do so. And that will take a few years.

    Oh, and not being American doesn't help either. You guys are always talking about amazing sales in NYC, Washington, etc... That just makes me envious. [​IMG]

    Is there a test one can take to determine if one is a "lively character" or a "genuine poster"? I suspect I am a troll...


    You are in a desert and there is a turtle lying on its back...

    Hah, try living in DC and not having the money to spend at the great Sack's and NM sales. We were just there on Sat and all I could afford were a couple pocket squares. Sigh.

    cheapmutha and denimdestroyedmylife are troll buddies. I'm only sorry I don't have photographic evidence.

    Thanks. I wasn't satisfied with my own google image searching. I think DDML will be elevated to contributing styleforum member with his purchase of Alden cordovan boots. He may even want to join AskAndy.

    I would never admit to searching the AA forums about Aldens and cordovan shell care.

    Because they are Hillcrests, not Park Aves, and we all know this.

    I wouldn't worry about this so much. In fact, this place is perfect for guys who don't have a lot of money but still want to look good - no matter where on the globe they are. I think there's two sides to the forum: one side is about what looks good, what fits good, what's appropriate, what should be worn with what, etc.; the other side is where can you find the things from the first side for the cheapest possible price. Also, a lot of us here subscribe to this quote (which I don't know who to attribute to): "I'm not rich, I'm just irresponsible."

    "Marginalized" means you are in the biggest club in the world.
