    I'm sorry that you feel that way. I am pretty open to most discussions. I did not mean to "treat you like a child", and I apologize if that is the impression I gave. MY only point was that I am not going to discuss whether or not a forum in which the administrator publicly maliciously humiliates Styleforum posters, and where the administrator deliberately took advantage of our PM system to try to undermine Styleforum, is okay. If you ever decide to come back, you'll be very welcome.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'm not able to see your pictures. Maybe you could check your upload?

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I put mine in the public folder and just copy and paste the links.

    The beef between SF and DW and their members doesn't interest mee too much tbh. Unlike on the Dutch Stijlforum I'm just a regular member on both and visit them because I like menswear. As I like menswear I visit menswear fora, whether or not they harbour offensive members. Most fora do.

    In the DC incident I was only pointing out that just because a forum may have disagreeable members it is not a reason to insult all its members.

    The fact that my posts were deleted doesn't bother me too much either in retrospect. Although I posted nothing offensive my posts were, unlike most of my contributions to this thread, off-topic.

    As a well-respected (I hope) member of this forum with no bad track record I do find it insulting being told by an admin that I can complain via PM if I want to but need not expect a reply. This is contrary to what you state above about being open to discussion and much more insulting than some guy I'will never meet calling me a homophobic racist over the internet.
    It would have been different if I had 'done something wrong' but you will be hard-pressed to find me being offensive on any the the fora I frequent.

    I hope you will understand why your actions have left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Best,

    C.

    I do understand your issue, and I apologize. All I meant to say is that I did not wish to discuss the issue any further. Clearly, my choice of words was unfortunate. I hope that you will accept my apology.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'm not a long time member on here, but I've always been impressed by Fok's public displays of humility.

    Crat, I do hope that you can reconsider. I appreciate your posts here.

    Here comes my first ever post in this thread and I guess on this theme. Be hard but gentle please.
    Picture is after a delicious sunday brunch which explains the slight pulling on the waist, or it might just be my posture.

    Please comment on anything, I'm in this to learn.

    @Crat - I don't think you'd see an apology like that from almost any other forum owner. We'd like you to stay and clearly Fok does too.

    Glad this is all resolved, Crat, and that you're staying.

    To be honest, Fok seems to be one of the most reasonable people around as evidenced by his posts on the TOJ thread. Good quality for a member but a great quality for a forum moderator.

    MrNestor nice jacket and I love your choice of colors but since you asked
    1. You'd benefit from a taller collar
    2. Ease the waist suppression a bit
    3. The rise of your pants is too low
    4. Cotton pants too casual for the jacket
