Could we please stop saying that? It doesn't even mean anything.
Sadly, it means something to those that use it.
I doubt even that.
+1 for ceasing it, but I too reckon it has meaning to those who use it.
It's the catchphrase of the convert; converts tend to zealotry.
I approve this thread.
This thread may lead to cognitive dissonance.
sorry, i cant hear you over all these wristbeads
Is it not true that Vox's approval is synonymous with SF-approval?
No. See above.
Don't most people use it ironically? I don't think anyone actually uses it seriously. I think it has valid currency as a term when used in this way, as it punctures a little bit of the pomposity and groupthink that can occur on any internet forum.
But, here is another quandary:
Why does everyone insist on referring to F. Corbera as vox? I do not dispute the fact that he is the same person, only that if he wanted to be reference as such, he would use the vox login...
Yes, but I'm afraid there are a lot of people who are serious about it.
It's shorter and more established.
pls check your pm, ty.
"SF approved" still has a ring of truth to it, even if it's used ironically. There are certain looks and certain items that the majority of us would deem "good", so for better or worse those things get the stamp of approval.
The higher frequency of these looks and items in waywn and other threads just reinforce the approval rating. The only way to expand the notion of what is "good" is to look at and discuss things outside of the SF norm that are of high quality. That's why I like the visual threads like Sartorialist, Non-Sartorialist and Vintage Images, even if half the time they're filled with snarky "look at that clown, he's wearing a scarf with a suit" comments.
How can you know this?
Are you American?
You know that many Americans don't 'do' irony!
