    Why do these people use unnecessary commas? Ever since Kent pointed it out it's been bothering me. I kind of like Vlaclav...

    They do it because they're trying to be funny. Vaclav generally is. They generally are not.
    C'mon Jon-- it'll be fun!!
    I'm convinced.

    Vaclav's shtick is like the typical SNL skit: funny for about a minute, then increasingly tiresome as the "joke" is repeated over and over. If SF must have a court jester, I think ernest is a much better candidate -- he brings new material each time, and actually contributes a bit to style discussions.
    Yeah I agree with this.

    I think I have laughed exactly twice at the antics of Vaclav (three times if you count the time when he was calling himself Lazarillo) - the first (and only the first) time a Public Enemy song was translated, and the card to Malinda were both really funny. The Lazarillo kite was funny.

    The rest is just boring now.

    I still like the idea that came up a while ago of setting up a subfora for Ernest to play in - just let him post his socks off in Ernests Playroom and ban him from everywhere else.

    I say, we have the entire gang back. Ernest, Kalra, that banker, Mr.Grayson, et al.

    I liked some of Vaclav's jokes, and I asked him to keep the noise down to a minimum. He did, for a while, but then apparently forgot, and more and more posters started complaining about him. More than one moderator though that his schtick was getting tiresome, so he was put in timeout (not by me, btw.)

    Let this thread die, okay? Thanks guys,

    Fok.

    He never showed ill will towards any forum members... he was polite. I find some other forum members annoying, however I don't think they should be banned. I really don't see what the problem is with him.

    He was timed out, not banned. My personal feeling about Vaclav are mixed, but that's not the point. Let's just let this thread sink to page 10, please. I hate having to lock threads.

    Trolls lead to longstanding members of the forum to stop posting. Got it?

    Vaclav's harmless. At most, marginally annoying; usually, he's at least somewhat amusing.

    Apologies in advance, but everyone has to check this out, it's so absurdly intricate that it's like an Escher print.

    http://www.filmnoirbuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=106

    Okay, so Jimmy Stewart, who is really Marc Grayson, posts this thread. (You can tell it's Marc because his praise towards himself is just effusive - "One guy who is really experienced and has used almost every bespoke maker in the world..." - and because he manages to take several digs at Kabbaz.)

    Grayson claims that the "marc39" in the AAAC thread isn't him, even though it's clearly his original account. Interestingly, Kevin Barron in the AAAC thread is also him under a false name.

    Back at FNB, he then claims that the instances of him deriding others were entirely the work of others stealing his username. Somehow, these digital terrorists also managed to hijack his account just in time to demonstrate some appalling racism towards the French and get banned from SF.

    And then... oh boy, and then, he comes out with this zinger:

    The Internet clearly is vulnerable to the release of false information and anyone with a computer and self-interested motives can access it. Doing so under false pretenses, using misleading usernames, is especially onerous.
    It's like watching one of those reality TV shows where everyone's trapped in the house. Can't look away, even though you know you really should.

    Psht. If you're going to let loose over something this enormously silly, might as well have some fun with it.

    Looking at the AskAndy, there are some people who do not know what they are talking about.

    Gucci does not make their own shoes; Sergio Rossi does. Dunhill and ST.Dupont are equal in terms of firm quality.

    However, ST Dupont only began offering lighters, in an aluminum version, during the '40s when precious materials were scarce. Dunhill is the originator of the handheld lighter with Wise & Greenwood's iconic Unique design, which they made for Dunhill in both cigar and cigarette version in various materials.

    Caran d'Ache would be another highly regarded option for lighters but nobody has brought that up.

    I don't like butane lighters.
