I hope this doesn't happen here but I'll have to stick around to find out.

Nice to know the mods and admins are here to sort things out.

So far the Nook has been a great place for me.

Well said!

This is a great forum. Nice people and friendly mods. Don't need any malarky bans to worry about. So far this place has been a great environment to voice your opinions about wetshaving accessories and so far it's been a great place to find information. Recently, I've been reading though the threads wondering about which new soap/cream to buy next. It's been an extraordinary experience talking to members and trading various soaps. Still on the search for that one soap..

I agree with Hector... if I find myself getting annoyed for whatever reason I just avoid and move on. 

Generally try to keep my posts upbeat and contribute positively. Not like I don't have critical comments to make on occasion but I don't visit the site for debate and antagonism so I generally just don't provide that type of content. 

Shave on my good men!

The crazy thing is that one does not have to intend to be argumentative to be warned or banned.  Those are the ones that catch you cold and keep you wondering...and keep the coals hot for awhile.  However, that said, the "other place" is really the over-reactive and downright gentlemanly nasty place to learn about traditional shaving.

People are increasingly discovering the merits of this hobby, and there is more variety than ever in terms of products available in the marketplace.

Here at TSN, we strive to maintain a culture and atmosphere that allows for gentlemanly interaction between our members, artisans, and vendors.
The forum benefits from active involvement of all members, established and new, who share a common passion.
The vast majority of our members observe honesty and integrity in terms of their conduct on the forum, and are respectful of forum rules.
Our forum rules are fairly simple, and most members exercise good judgment and follow them without issue.

Sadly, it only takes a few unscrupulous individuals to spoil things for everyone.
We are increasingly concerned with an element of behavior that goes against the core values and integrity of TSN.
Posts/threads that constitute blatant advertising or promotion with set agendas, rather than honest discussion of appropriate topics, are contrary to the ideals of TSN.
What may be acceptable at other social media venues (forums and groups), is not welcome here.  Rampant 'fanboyism', shilling, and trolling will not be tolerated here.  
Members who wish to behave in this manner can do so elsewhere.
There exists a fine line between proper dialogue and undesirable activity.  We frown upon the latter, and those who display such behavior will be subject to Moderator actions.
Banning of members from TSN is an action that is not taken lightly, and shall be employed as a means if necessary, in order to protect the better interests of all here.

Thank you for your ongoing support and involvement here on TSN. 
We look forward to further growth and development, and are excited for the future.

TSN Administrators and Moderators.

It doesn't hurt to reread the rules or operating instructions on just about anything once in a while. I just made MAC and CHEESE for lunch. No deal; boil pasta in water 7.5 minutes, drain, add cheese,1/4 cup milk 4 pats butter and stir.  What the........ My mother somehow grabbed a kid's version with teenage mutant ninja turtle figures requiring one pat of butter and 3 tbsps. of milk. This stuff looks like Salvador Dali painted.
I know I've been intemperate and judgemental without cause and really pushed the envelope. I can only plead temporary sanity and ask forgiveness. This place is about shaving. I have the rest of the whole damned internet to save the whales on.

This seems like a nice Forum, I'm new here and so far I do like The Shave Nook a lot.

With regard to "Fanboy", It came out of Gaming, but has migrated to many other Forums like Cars, Plastic Models, and it seems now the wet shaving world per the topic. 
Basically refers to a person who likes and politics for one thing only and to rally for it regardless.
Say I like Barbasol Shave Cream, it's all I use and will dismiss other brands, even in the face of logic and fact, making it a point to tell all how great I think Barbasol is.

Currently I have a number of Gillette vintage razors, this will change with time, as I do want to try out other makers, having only Gillette razors doesn't make me a Fanboy, it just means that I'm effected with RAD.
In the Plastic Scale Modeling world we have our own afflictions like AMS or Advanced Modeler Syndrome - modelers can't build a model out of the box without adding aftermarket detail sets, decals and Photo-etch sets.

Nice to see some things won't be tolerated and decorum reigns in the halls of TSN.

I dislike the word "Fanboy."  I view it as a disparaging characterization, and see no place for it in a gentlemanly discussion.

I consider myself an "Apple Fanboy" even with my Android phone and Google router.  I have enjoyed the numerous cartoons and articles on "how to spot an Apple fanboy", etc.  Based on my number of brushes, I may even be a Paladin or Mervyn Cadman fanboy.  

The word fanboy (and many others) can be accurate, numerous, or have negative connotations.  If Ken at Paladin would call me a "Paladin fanboy", I would laugh and agree.  If the owner of "best boar brush ever company" would use the term in a negative manner, I might be offended.  

Net net, sometimes the context of how a word is used is also important.  I also agree with friendly discussions and educational dissent.

I would be perfectly happy with vintage Gillettes exclusively. In fact, I can pass on many modern razors but I just cannot pass on some Gillettes. Just this week I got one I had given up going after. Great razor btw, I am glad didn't pass.

Ricardo,

I agree with you concerning the use of the term "Fanboy".  Disparaging characterization is a good description.  Additionally, I have been a member here, as well as a number of other forums for a number of years, and to the best of my memory, this is the only shave forum where I have seen the terms "fanboy", "shill", and "troll" used to describe a member's actions and/or attitudes.  Perhaps I am showing my ignorance but I had never heard the term "Fanboy" until here; I had to look up the meaning of "shill" to understand how it applied here.  TSN is a good forum.  Is there a culture here that lends to the use of these terms?  My goal is to exchange shaving related experiences in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Just a thought.............

Regards,

Regards,
Personally, I've seen these terms being used to characterize members more often elsewhere... There are not many threads here with these terms, only a few, and people are civil sharing opinions and thoughts. I particate in forums since 2012, but this is the only forum I have participated so much. There are great people here and the mod team does a good job.

Hi, I was wondering if you had and liked Gillette Super speed?

The short answer is yes. There are many variation of the ss, like the flare tip, black tip, blue tip, red tip and the classic (not its actual name) ss. I prefer the red tip and english flare tip. The others are fine, but a bit on the mild side fo me. I am sure there prenty of threads where the subject can be discussed.
