    well that's what Aristotle would have called trolling. you can look it up under circular argument.

    but why don't we just agree that time is precious and leave it at that? ;)

    Rhetorical.... ???? Somewhat I guess. And in this case of ESEE & BF, as far as I can see it matters not one bit. Decisions by both parties have been made and that is that. :)

    I was mildly curious as to the answer though, so I tried to ask in a mild, non-combative way.

    Personally, I find it comical when people at large are 'negatively' lumped into a group by words such as "clique", "fan boy", "cult", etc., etc.; simply because of their knife preferences & likes. I wondered about the use of the word in this case.... simple as that. :)

    I like ESEE, CRK, Benchmade, Spyderco, and a whole lot of others... customs included. Probably most of the others here on BF do also. To me it seems those words of description are many times used as a thinly veiled "e-punch" toward an individual or group just because they like a certain brand of knife. The negative use of the words at large just amuse me. ;)

    I am not saying this was the case here... I don't know.

    Yeah, I agree; I wouldn't put much past a "teacher" either. Heck, I wouldn't put much past 98% of the rest of the population either.... ;)

    Can't argue with your train of thought or the potential conclusions derived therefrom, teach.

    It takes all kinds. All we can do here is hope to rely upon the character of our membership and step in when need be.

    not all fan boys consider the term a pejorative. Hang out in some of 'those' sub forums if you doubt me. :rolleyes:

    It's all good Blues..... :thumbup:
    I think you all do excellent work with a hard job.
    At least I have always been treated fairly. When I did get "dinged"... I deserved it. :)

    Hey, I totally agree. I was looking at it more from the intent of the "speaker". [Again, not just relating to this instance. :)..]

    Nothing trolling at all.

    Just facts on what you posted and that your first conclusions were not based on logic.

    Look it up youself.

    Why don't we just agree that your initial conclusion was just a trolling gripe had nothing to do with reality then you started grabbing straws.

    If you need a definition of trolling you should also look at your posts here. Also look up the definition of nourish.

    I do not think it is wise to bring up Aristotle discussions with a full blooded Greek unless you actually know what you are talking about.

    I just stopped by Jeff's trailer, to see if he was ok. Grass is seriously overgrown, half empty lucky lager bottle on the step. One of the tires flat on the trailer and the door swinging open from the wind. Could he be off the wagon again? I sure hope not! :confused:

    I'm sorry to see the ESEE forum go,but I don't think it is in any way Ken C's fault.After all he was just doing his job.

    I've seen the same complaint in other subs,ie:"Just let us moderate out own forum & stay out of it".Well SUPER-MODS are charge of moderating the ENTIRE forum.That means every sub-forum guys.

    Ken does come across as condescending & sometimes flat out rude at times,but as far as his moderating goes,I feel it's top notch.
    IMO,I think all the Super-Mods could learn a lot from the way Esav does his job.

    Anyway,That's my .02

    I wish ESEE all the best with their business endeavors.

    :thumbup: +1 I also think ESEE sub-forum had their own little "click" of mods. Abused the moderator privledges given them. Also, if you didn't follow like sheep, they didn't like you. That's my opinion. Bladeforums won't suffer. There are some awesome knifemakers here with great products. :thumbup:
