Holy Smokes, we have a lot of new members all of a sudden.
I'm gettin' tired of typin' "Welcome to BoB."  Wink 
Seriously, I'm on a bunch of forums and BoB is the friendliest.

Welcome again, all you new fellers.  cheers

I was afk for about 8 hours or so with work, and we seem to have picked up about a dozen today. I am happy to see them!

Being new here I hope I am not butting into this conversation, but most, if not all are from PM forum (I suspect you could have guessed it) there was a lovely fallout when a great member got banned.

What does PM stand for? I wasn't aware of that forum.
Ya gotta really eff up to get banned from here. Wink 
The moderators do a great job, but they have it easy.
For some reason, this forum just stays kinda civil all on its own.

PM stands for Pipes Magazine, and only one person got banned, but it was for something very stupid, but the rest followed. I can't speak for the rest of my "refugee" friends, but after watching it unfold I decided I did not want to be a major contributor to a forum like that.

Hope this makes a better, proper forum for the newcomers to snuggle into just in time for the holidays. I know it's been super welcoming to me, so please make yourself at home! cheers

Let me give you new refugees one good piece of advice about that kind of situation and this forum. If you like to debate those kind of topics, join the Asylum (affectionately known as the Rubber Room, bottom sub forum on the list). If you don't like those sort of topics, do not sign up for the Asylum. If we get a topic pop up that we think might be too political or off color for the general population, we move it to the Asylum. But, there are still rules of decorum. Read em.

And welcome to BoB Smile

If you wish to have access to this area of the board you have to join the usergroup called "The Asylum". This area is less moderated and can contain material that some will find less than desirable. It is rarely pipe related and topics are considered by many to be controversial. Please do not join this area of the board if you are easily offended or wish to start problems with other members.

To join, click on the link above the forums labeled "Usergroups". On that page you will see "The Asylum" listed, click on that to request membership. Once approved you will have access to this area of the board. It shouldn't take too long. There is no requirement for membership here but understand you are entering at your own risk.

We have decided to close this area off to respect those members who wish to avoid it.


Hermit, yeah, I know, I had to hold back my own laughter when I said that Laughing We kinda have a few rules. Not sure where we put them.....

As did the other ... the 'offense' was, in general, less offensive than one might imagine ...

This^

Wasn't aware of the PM issue until just now. I signed up there a while back but rarely read the forums and have never posted. Guess I'm just happy enough being here!

In any case, welcome all the refugees from PM!

Cheers,

I have veen waiting a couple of days for asylum approval - and nothing.

I got banned for starting a post that they closed Roth's goodbye post! Instant banning! I feel like I am Amish with the shunning! That was all I did. and mentioned kevin's 1930's Black and white shoes as mentioned by a member previously.

Like I said, a lot less offensive than one might imagine ... based on what I saw (and I think I saw most, if not all of it), those who felt bruised by the comments must be some pretty delicate hot-house flowers ... there just wasn't anything in public view that could be construed by most folks as ban-worthy.

I've been part of a number of forums and have witnessed the sort of (smack) talk that one might imagine could get a person banned ... but, bannings almost never occurred, even after some pretty cringe-inducing comments ... post deletions were about all that ever happened.

I see this as a new start, although I've actually been a member here almost as long as on the "other" pipe hobby site.

Personally, I don't think I did anything wrong over there, nor on this site, for that matter. And my many friends here, I believe, agree.

I do welcome all the new members who joined me here, and a big hello to all the other friends I have here already.

Hello All, I am new here and wanted to say hi to everyone , been smoking a pipe for a bit over a year now. I mainly smoke MM Cobs but do have a few Briars that I smoke occasionally so thought I would check out the brotherhood. Looking forward to meeting a few more pipe smokers. 👍
