For some unknown reasons, the pipe community here has always been extremely polite and respectful. The members of the cigar community, of whom I count myself, could learn a thing or two from you.
I made the decision to make a public statement about the issues we were having reported and pm'd. If it was one or two guys it could of been handled in private (maybe) but when it involves multiple people, multiple threads, no way am I spending a week trying to explain what's wrong and why it's wrong and not allowed. I called no one out on the carpet, just a heads up to the community about the rules and why I was getting fed up. If guys choose to take it as a personal attack against them. That's neither my fault or problem.I truly hate to see this on any board. This should have been kept private, between the two or more persons involved and maintained a "business casual" thing... IMHO
