    Thanks for the heads up. I just committed financial homicide on twenty pouches of Salty Dogs a few minutes ago, so no more TAD for me for a while.

    Not a Toby Kieth fan. Still won't fucking pay heed.

    Who's Toby Keith, and what does he have to do with Dorchester?

    I'd answer, but politically-charged posts from my side of the aisle aren't allowed.

    One tin limit. I guess the Post Office will be happy.

    Yes, a one tin limit. We didn't have very many tins and in order to give our customers a chance to buy some, we chose to limit it. Unfortunately, there is always that one guy that will buy them all.

    I find this is the most democratic way to sell them. I'm sure most of you understand.

    Buying two tins, as Mars does for all but Penzance and Stonehaven, is hardly one guy buying them all. Straw man argument. Paying $4 + to ship one tin of tobacco is absurd. I have received good service from 4Noggins at reasonable prices, including shipping. For this product line, at least for most of the tinned product, a two tin limit ought to be considered.

    Why on Earth should this thread be closed?

    I for one agree with the one tin / bag limit. Most vendors get what, 10 bags or tins maybe of each blend? I dont know exactly, but if guys are taking 2 each, its gone twice as fast. Im all for giving more people a chance at these blends.

    NOW what I dont like is how some vendors will release one blend at a time, or one every few days or weeks, instead of just listing what they have when it comes in.

    @jravenwood, I just don't see most of the ET products as that hard to find. Tins of Pembroke, Margate, etc were available for 24 hours or more at several of the etailers. I happen to prefer, strictly as a matter of personal convenience, the ET tins over the bags where available. Fortunately, there are etailers with more accommodating limits and I don't need to pay the postage to get one tin of Dorchester. But I would have pulled the trigger if the limit were 2.

    But perhaps today's FDA news will start the air coming out of the tobacco hoarding bubble and things will return to normal.

    Nah, I was hoarding long before the FDA silliness just because tobacco prices only increase as time passes.

    @oldgeezersmoker I agree my friend, pembroke and Margate are easy to come by. But Dunbar, And so to Bed, and Tilbury, and of course the rarest "two" are harder to get! I dont see the hoarding ending anytime soon! I hear you, if all you want is a tin, adding $4 on to that price makes it a pass as its nearly half the price of the tin. Thats why Im saying it frustrating when some vendors only populate their site with one blend at a time. Iwan Ries being one of them.

    Nothing stopping you from buying something else along with your tin of Unicorn Farts unless that is all you smoke

    Sure, $4.00 to ship one tin is expensive, but keep in mind that most guys buy more than the one tin. They pick up a few other items as well, and that justifies the purchase.

    First off, thank you all for being forum members. But, even as clever as it was done, please do not bring politics into this forum.
    A warning was sent, and I hope lots of people buy Dorchester. 4noggins has lots of great stuff. But, this particular thread has to be closed. Just doing my job. Thanks everyone.
