I know this is threadromancy in the extreme, but perhaps we could make this a sticky, or have this list as a pop-up when you hover over it. I found Bob's abbreviation list helpful, and would've been a godsend when I started smoking months ago...
Just a thought...

I think lordnoble has a great idea. Maybe a sticky or somewhere on one of the side bars would be a good place to put the list, so it is easily accessible.

Brilliant! I was feeling a little lost reading some of these posts.
I had figured out what a B&M was, but had no idea it stood for Brick & Mortar.
PAD had me completely lost.
TY for the post Bob.

You're right, sirbogglesworth. The first time I saw B&M was on this site and I thought to myself, "Man, these guys are really tight with each other."

Having worked as a nurse's Aide when I first saw B&M I missed the & and wondered about someone smoking a bowel movement.

There have been a number of different threads on this but I believe it has always boiled down to a blend that has had a topping or flavoring added to enhance the flavor of the tobacco....

Alrighty then: What do the "+1" and such mean? And I apologize in advance if this is as dumb a question as I think it might be lol
