    It seems like there's been a huge wave of new posters on the forum today. Nice to have some 'fresh meat'. Also, even before the article came out, I've noticed quite a few newer members within the past few weeks. I'm wondering, though, how many of you discovered this site by the New York Times article, and how many have just found it on your own?

    Thing is, you have to be logged in to vote, so the results are not going to be anywhere near conclusive...

    Oh, I didn't know that guests were not allowed to vote in polls.

    Yes, I'm one of them. I've read the forums on basenotes.net from time to time over the past year. Recently there I heard about askandyaboutclothes.com which had a link to the NYT article which brought me here.

    I had no idea there were so many people in the world that were as brain damaged as me, spending hours and hours and hours reading and researching and thinking about Men's Finer Clothing.

    Then I see LAGuy or AHarris, with their 1k + posts and think, Geez, I've got a long way to go to even consider myself as "having a problem."

    (quizzical tone that C. Montgomery Burns uses when he does not understand a word): s-t-y-l-e forum? [​IMG] I just hope that the NYT article brings an infusion of positive members, because from the looks of it the article is starting to cause more trouble than it is worth. Just my 2 cents (3 cents Canadian) Jon.

    I'm one of those new guys who found this through the NYT article--which I otherwise didn't think was so great--but it's wonderful to see so many people who are are serious as I am about this stuff. Whenever I start in with "seven-fold ties" and "flower loops" my wife just rolls her eyes....

    Good to be here.

    I found it through the Men's Health web site which had a thread on the NYT story. I'm shocked and saddened that I hadn't heard of this forum before...it's just the type of thing I've been looking so long for.

    LAG & AH: If you want, I can set your post counts back to a hundred or so, so you can feel normal again. Just ask, I'm happy to 'enable'. [​IMG] As for myself I set mine the other day to 9999 because all the posts made on my 'other personality' in the system weren't counted in my total, and also to look like I participate here more than anyone else.
