Couple of Forum Questions on Cubans and Forum Etiquette.

Ok so I was re reading the rules for CS and I just want to make sure that I am not offside here.

I have posted a few pictures of my recent purchases of mostly Cubans, these have been either purchased from the local B&M or an online supplier here in Alberta (Canadian law says you can't ship tobacco interprovincially) so all my Cubans are fully legit. Also as I am in Canada it is perfectly legal to buy Cubans, in fact it is harder to find a good source of NC's than it is to buy cubans.

I am assuming I am not offside of forum rules by posting my purchases of Cubans here but if that is not the case let me know I have no desire to have any unnecessary scrutiny come to the forum.

Ok on to my next question, I love to post my purchases and share with all the brothers and sisters on CS, but it occurred to me that it might seem like bragging or showing off and I don't want this to be the case either, I think this is a great place to share and I have thoroughly enjoyed spending my time on here (ok maybe way to much time) and look forward to for a long time to come. I am the kind of person that will share every single order or stick I get and post them on here..............hell I would even post a pack of backwoods sweets if I bought them and fully accept the abuse I would take. However, if it is too much then let me know and I will refrain. Sometimes I come on a little strong and as I am new that can tick people off.

Alright that should about cover it. Thanks to all the great BOTL and SOTL for making me feel welcome and everyone else so far I have not seen/met one person on here that wasn't a great individual

Re: Couple of Forum Questions on Cubans and Forum Etiquette.

I understand your concerns as well. After reading the Forum that you did... I was kind of worried myself. But, if you dont live in the US, then they are not illegal for you. Im in europe so Im guessing the same applies to me as well.

Re: Couple of Forum Questions on Cubans and Forum Etiquette.

I, for one, really enjoy seeing everoyone's pix of all things
cigars (cigars, humis... even lighters & cutters).

I think it's great to share the excitement of a new purchase.

I think it also gets others to comment about how much they enjoy
or are curious about a particular cigar - which is easier to do when
you see it.

Finally, when I'm on CS from work, it can be a great pick-me-up
when things are slow. Gets me thinking about what stick *I'll* be
smoking when I get home.

Cheers !

The forum rules and guidelines apply to everyone - no matter where you live.
Besides, the laws have nothing to do with where you live. If you are a US citizen, Cubans are illegal no matter if you are in Canada, Europe, or anywhere else outside the US.

Some of the rules/guidelines are in place to protect the forum from exposure and/or scrutiny. So even if you are a German citizen, living in Germany, you are still not allowed to discuss sources or post links to vendors or Cuban cigars.

I hope this clears up any confusion.

On a different note, it might not hurt to post an introduction thread, even though you've been here for nearly a month.

As a result of U.S. Law members here may not:

* Post links to sites that sell Cuban cigars.
* Post requests to buy or sell Cuban Cigars.

Club Stogie adds a bit to things you may not do:

* Post requests for sources to buy Cuban Cigars.
* Post pictures or words that depict how Cuban cigars were illegally shipped or received.

If you choose not to follow these guidelines, it can result in the loss of access to areas of Club Stogie, and potentially loss of membership.
