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.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    It's a great way to be racist/classist, without being racist. Urban/city prole, country prole. And it can go both ways, bourgeoise can be equally disparaging. They're the assholes with money but no taste or class. The words are too ridiculous to be taken seriously, so nobody will be offended.
    So that's how it's spelled. I imagine I only used/heard this term in speech ... way back in "high" school.

    Thought I'd add some fuel to the fire...just a couple of pics from my other "home"...Peninsula Beverly Hills:

    My "crew" poolside in my cabana:

    I'm addicted to "high tea" and would enjoy it everyday if I could find people with enough free time:

    Ummm...just because she likes this pic. [​IMG]

    I do wonder what the people at the Veuve event across the pool must have been thinking

    Alright...carry on...

    Seriously. They are the worst form of "lifestyle" photos. The location isn't that impressive, the photos suck, and they're accompanied by smug captions implying that this douche is baller. 1. Your "crew" is a guy in a hurley tshirt, a fat guy in a wrinkly button up, and a brooke hogan look-a-like. 2. Finding people with enough free time isn't your problem. I'm guessing that neither you nor your friends can afford high tea everyday. If you had it all the time you wouldn't feel the need to take pictures of it. 3. No one across the pool is paying attention to you. Look at the picture. Not one person is even looking in your general direction. Just like styleforum, they don't care that you took a picture of some girls ass. You can afford a room that costs $500 a night. Cool. I'm happy for you. Just don't post the "evidence" on the internet because no one gives a flying fuck.

    I'm not certain what's more hilarious. Your lengthy reply or the fact that you couldn't tell that I made the post in jest...to highlight the kind of post this thread is about. [​IMG]

    1. I don't care what they look like. They're friends who I treated to a week in L.A. that we all enjoyed very much.
    2. Yeah, it actually is my problem. I work for myself for about 20hrs per week. Most of my friends aren't as financially capable...I take pictures everyday...not of stuff but of the people I spend my time with.
    3. I didn't care about them either and I didn't take that picture of her ass. I'm as gay as a french horn player

    The room was $1400...not that it matters or that I mentioned it. Stop projecting.

    Perhaps the problem with people posting pics of what they're wearing, where they're going/etc is the other people who find it necessary to insult them based on their own perceptions...either way...you should calm the fuck down since you don't give a flying fuck.

    I think you are confusing this thread with another. I never claimed the existence of a prelapsarian version of the forum. Matt pointed out that this has been going on for years.

    Today's winner wants us all to know that (some of) his wine is French, and that Renoir was French, too. Thus, there are several French things in his home, which must accordingly be overflowing with European-style ambiance. Or perhaps he wishes us to know that he appreciates fine art, but only when paired with alcohol produced in the same country as the artist. The symmetry is mindblowing. [​IMG]

    Don't forget that he wants us to know he can afford electricity and lamps. You know, the finer things in life.

    I think this is important, priorities are important. Some of the people in SW&D wear expensive clothing but apparently live in a lean-to.

    FWIW, my sporadic digest of WAYWRN is largely purged of LSPs. It is arduous to edit it down, though.

    Maybe I'll take a shot at the last six weeks this week.
