    I'm not, but every time I click a StyleForum link in my Thunderbird email program, the app says "This site looks like a scam, are you sure you want to click through?"

    My most-wanted knit sold out in my size, so as a Hail Mary I bought one size up (the very last one in stock), expecting I would likely have to return it.

    But it turns out one size up fits perfectly, so I am greatly indebted to whoever took the size I originally thought I needed.

    :drool: So much cashmere . . . .

    Yeah I got it as well, seemed random but was on slickdeals and Brooks Brothers so figured it was one of those. Guess it was SF

    Malo chunky cardi off Yoox. It's about as thick as my TBxBBBF cardigan, which is supposedly 24-ply.

    You're right, but I was waiting for drops/codes due to the horrible exchange rate. (It was my current most-wanted but I dunno about holy-grail status.) Funny thing is, I almost pulled the trigger on the 50 a bunch of times over the last month but if I had bought that one it might have been too slim.

    Both. Ugh. I'll report it. The ads are targetted, so your experience is unique. However, there are always assholes who abuse the networks by submitting ads with spoof scripts. The networks hate them, and we hate them, because it's really like playing a constant game of squash the mole, or whatever.

    Incidentally, this was a problem that was not isolated to Styleforum. It was a problem that google detected across its networks, and it was in other ad networks as well. Apparemtly, this is what happened:

    • several ad networks were hacked by the same hacking group
    • they used the ad network accounts to traffic the bad ads across several channels (ad exchanges, direct deals, etc.)
    • they didn't use all of the ad networks at once
    • when one network was blocked via a distribution channel, they moved on to another
    • they also varied their tech and ad behavior (straight redirects, some requiring user actions like clicking anywhere on the page or form submission)
    • they cloaked their links (hid behind many different domains) in order to make things even more difficult to track down and block


    Motherfuckers are smart and agile.

    I initially read this as "playing squash with a mole", which made me think of playing squash with one of these guys:

    Yeah first reaction wasn't good either ;p Might be the incomplete picture, but feels top heavy since the implication is pants are fitted leather ones.

    Sorry I couldn't make it out sf bros, got sick, then while I was sick hit myself in the eye with my eyedrop applicator and tore my cornea. Now I'm "stuck" in SoCal for at least another week while that heals. Oh, and the Hawks lost the super bowl - bad weekend for nicelynice. On the upside, my mom is taking care of me :) wanna go back home to Seattle, can't take much more of the good weather and delicious Mexican food...

    The shop sells women's shoes and they listed sizing in us sizes. It's probably women's sizing right? Just haven't seen women's shoes go up to 11
