Yeah, some of the dogs these days. I remember when I was growing up dogs knew how to be real dogs and had values. Dogs these days have lost sight of dogulinity. And some of the barks they're using are really annoying (to me).

If you want to know of a bad (and badly moderated) forum..I can tell you stories from one that will make your head spin.
Only time in my life I was legitimately disgusted at a web forum.
Ever Conceal, Never Reveal
we need thicker skin in America. Being "too polite" is just a bit flaky or fake for me. impersonal. I mean we gotta bust each others chops every so often. that's what men do. especially at my favorite local barbershop. come on a friday evening and the johnnie walker cups are flowing.
I do understand your concerns. This forum is well run overall. To survive as many years as they have and to be as popular as they are, they have to be doing something right.

I have come back today after a two year hiatus. I have found B&B members to be kind to me and truly interested in answering my shaving questions ir listening to my opinions. I have found it to be a tad clique-ish at times, where a few posters seem to "own" the boards and turning them into their own person fifedoms amongst themselves. But really, they come and go. Honestly, it's good to be back. I've missed this place.

Great to have you back, Robert. I think you may find that many of those you mentioned are no longer with us.

Certainly this is a discussion forum, but what is wrong with expecting that newcomers (and even seasoned members) will look around just a little before they ask a question that has been answered already twenty times this week? (Too snarky?) I am asking this, knowing that I, myself, am guilty of having done exactly what I am complaining about. I deserved any snarky remarks I received. Example from Obilque Human, "Why not go through some of the hundreds of previous forum threads discussing this in acute detail?" when I posted a question about why one would "soak a brush." I did not take offense. He was right. There was a thread on this topic that was started just a few days before I started mine.
My mileage does vary.
But if we only refer to the previously is cussed stuff, we'll have nothing to discuss shaving wise.

One of the many things that makes B&B "different" is the ability for anyone to post a question and get answers.
While you can do that on just about any forum, the ability to do it here and actually get answers instead of snarky replies like "use the search function" or "not THIS topic again" set B&B apart from the chaff.
No one has an obligation to read, or to post in any thread they find boring or tedious.
