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

    A real gem, even by your standards.

    No, I think what ed is saying is that it's a bit rich for Internet cowboys to pick every possible nit of every photo they see when they don't have the balls to post their own stuff to show how it's supposed to be done; or, when they do muster up the courage, they prefer to post their stuff on hangers, or even laying flat on a table. Especially rich are those cowboys who think they can, from one awkwardly posed picture, better determine how a garment fits

    You are prone to exaggeration, aren't you.

    when they don't have the balls to post their own stuff to show how it's supposed to be done; or, when they do muster up the courage, they prefer to post their stuff on hangers, or even laying flat on a table.
    It seems your balls are newly minted since prior to this last month's outburst this was the only photo of your clothing that I'd ever seen you post.

    Especially rich are those cowboys who think they can, from one awkwardly posed picture, better determine how a garment fits than the owner who has actually worn it a number of times.

    Yes, it would be preposterous to entertain the notion that a person could unwittingly wear an ill fitted garment and that a photograph might illustrate that.



    BTW, I didn't receive the memo that my credentials weren't in order; that I needed to post a photo of me wearing a rig before I could offer criticism. [​IMG]

    Just stick with this: [​IMG]. It works better for you.

    You're right and it's about all the effort you're worth.

    Did someone force you guys to get into this fight about this or did you come up with the idea yourselves?

    I bet none of you could articulate what it is about.

    I suppose that if I wanted to respond, I could say that say that this is all the effort you must think everyone, on every forum, is worth, since this silly little emoticon is pretty much all you ever post. I could also say that I am touched that you save on your hard drive pictures I posted more than a year ago. And I could add that this year alone (not even a mere six months old) I have posted a dozen or so pictures of myself wearing my own cloths.

    But instead I will just say this:

    Dude, knocking one of the forums most respected members might not be the best use of your fourth post.

    If you mean me, well, believe me, I can take it.

    Oh, and my dad's a tort lawyer. Not saying I approve, but it works for him.

    I am not knocking either Manton (whom I assume you are referring to) or Tomasso. I respect both of their opinions immensely. I think the feud between the two is, like Dopey insinuated, not necessary and silly and I don't think either wants to admit it. Thanks for looking out though.

    II don't think either wants to admit it.

    I certainly don't. I think all my comments are amply justified, and a long time coming. At least I spelled out what I think instead of resorting to this [​IMG] for the 2,153rd time.

    That's funny. Fair enough.
