1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    (ernest @ Mar. 26 2005,11:39) Nice if you are a gipsy, otherwise it is completely TACKY
    There's nothing wrong with gypsys OR farmers; that is, if you like eating food you have not grown or raised yourself, and you have respect for other's cultures. Â Thanks.
    So I suppose you dresses yourself like a farmer during the week and as a gypsy during the WE as you respect them ?

    I believe France has a fair amount of the Romanies.

    So, you respect neither farmers nor Roma? Classist and racist; at least you're well-rounded, Ernest. Le Pen would be proud.

    I have friends who are both of these. Drag Queens are fine. S&M fetishists make me a bit uneasy, though.

    Obviously, bracelets are not even a big deal. Hardly "too much".

    Great staement Ernest, why do men wear rings, other than a wedding band or class ring, necklaces, diamonds, bracelet, etc...I think it is an inner femine trait, I am probably wrong, but in the South, you see all kinds of guys, mostly rednecks, wearing big diamond pinky rings or onyx and the such, and I have never gotten it, maybe it is a statement of wealth or wannabe wealth.....the "Jones'" thing.

    Is yet another businessman in an expensive suit now considered more stylish than an errant gypsy in embroidered silk and a flowing caftan?

    What has happened to taste?

    Please, at least wear a jade bracelet with a griffin's face along with the stuffy suit.

    I like diamond pinky rings and there is an old and noble history of distinguished men wearing all manner of jewelry. Look to Europe, the Ottoman empire, India for example.

    Men without jewelry is only a recent innovation.

    Actually, stepping out in the morning without the proper jewelry is unthinkable, like going without makeup or even a pouchette.

    Similarly, drag queens are nice as were castratos. And why not. All of these gender variations had estimable roles in the royal courts and entertainment and indeed consorts. Today, we continue to pay to see drag queen shows.

    Frankly, there needs to be room in our lives for drag queens as well as jewelery.

    A man can not live without braces.

    Ok, the question was not about braces... I had just gone out of bad.

    Well I have not seen a Royal Court around here in many years, with the exception of maybe the Kennedy's....and as to paying to see the drag queen shows, I can honestly say I have never, will never, have no yearning to, ever in my life pay to see a drag queen show. But, as pointed out in other threads, to each his own.

    No. I fail to see the connection, old boy.

    I expected an intelligent guy to see connection.

    If you can respect Drag & gay without dressing like them, it implies you can respect someone without dressing like him.

    And so that not beeing keen on dressing like someone has no link with respect

    LOL. I can only imagine that you've failed to understand your own original question. Perhaps it's the language barrier...

    A watch doesn't say, "I want in with the establishment and don't mind conforming."  It tells the time.
