    Love this post six, people gotta stop getting angry and just respect each other when debating. It isn't that hard, we are all adults here. It seems like 1-2 people keep joining into a thread and making it toxic by letting their emotions run away with them. Our mods really need to be spending their time dealing with the more important things, like making our spelling perfect

    Oh, I love this thread Six! My sides are hurting!

    By the way, other than an extremely high ragweed outbreak, the weather is very nice here in SE Tennessee.

    I’m glad you said “just teasing” beneath Weather...because I’m quite certain we could get a riot going in no time with a weather discussion. And I hope you didn’t think it was safe to discuss safe topics.

    lol! Now don't go getting the mods made at us!

    The Mods are all made men (and it’s not safe to discuss how that status is achieved).

    Great thing about being on the computer you can say anything about those topics and still survive the overhead bar stool attack.

    In the few fights that I've seen already on here I think the mods have done a great job. Let everyone have their say and then shut the door when it becomes repetitive. Some of the better moderation on a forum that I've seen in a while. The tendency is to over govern and nuke threads at the drop of a hat or shotgun ban anyone with contrary opinions. Not here though (as far as I've seen), the mods seem to have found a good balance.

    Unless you live in Texas, especially north central Texas, you don't know a hoot about weather anyway, so you shouldn't even talk about it. Weather.... really... I'm rolling my eyes right now at anyone who thinks they have anything interesting to say about weather. sheesh...

    I could not believe it, the clouds were the shape of a great tobacco pipe, and I dreamt that I was smoking it gently with the proper use of DGT... It was a heavenly smoke as I let my Penzance waft over the hordes of disbelievers and brought them all into my loving embrace...

    Six-You forgot Peterson QC, Zippos and Stanwell's move to Italy. Otherwise, spot on!
    The weather here is too dang hot for Michigan October, bring on the windy fall (Is that too opinionated?).

    I'm offended about your post about this post, because I'm feeling meta.

    Is the knife thread gone? I wanted to grab that photo of the guy with the giant Opinel.

    Need I remind you that any discussion of your favourite pipe babes is also verboten, especially when they work at the USPS and are secretly German war sympathizers.

    It's pretty bad when even the "What'cha Smokin'" thread knocks the Forums all out of whack.

    Weather here in Vegas is pretty good. A nippy upper 50s in the morning, but daily high's of mid 80s. Sunny and breezy as it always is in October.
