    I kinda' thought the point of having a post limit for the CE forum meant one had to demonstrate some participation in other parts of the forum before jumping into the CE fray. I didn't think it was an invitation to start CE threads in other forums. I am referring specifically to this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=839968 Edit: It's not a huge deal, I guess. I decided that trying to discuss grown-up things with college sophomores in the CE forum was rather pointless and I'd just prefer to see that type of thing stay in CE.

    Nice DB shawl collar jacket there.

    Is that what the SW&D folks mean by "hip flare"?

    The pants flare at multiple points. Very interesting construction... Highly tapered leg... Let's look at how the fabric flows...

    interesting point Dan. Personally I dont have a huge problem with new members who are not trolls starting CE-esque discussion outside CE because they cannot get in...providing it stays civil. So far that one has stayed civil, the OP hasnt gone off the rails, and no other newbies have shown up claiming to be Lakshmi Mittal . I can move it over to CE, but then the guy who started it cant play along, which isnt really fair on him either. For the time being I am OK with it - but your point is well made.

    Yeah, that's basically been the guideline. If newbs start a thread that has CEsspool written all over it, or if it goes that way quickly, it will get moved.

    I saw what you wrote before. It's being looked into.

    I just had to shut the server down for a bit to do some maintenance on the database after a few scary error messages. It looks like the server people were doing some maintenance first and a few posts during that period may have been lost, so, sorry about that. I've told them not to work on it again without shutting down or telling me so I can shut it down. Anyway, it looks like everything is healthy, just a little weirdness that should be taken care of now.

    I wish I could see pre-edits but actually I saw it and didn't respond. But if you get the law involved, LDad's on my side.

    Done. I assumed my comment would only make sense to someone who had read yesterday's discussion and thus would understand the allusion I was making.
