    I like popcorn with a PBR.
    PBR is a good basic lager that you can get in a tavern for 2 buck a pint, 1.50 at happy hour. Right now it's Lagunitas though. Now that is hip. Coming from an old hippy.

    This whole brouhaha is because we've all been on the internet for years and we've all been on forums for years. So we all know how to post on a forum. A la Ken Onion. But, when you come to KKF no one except for the insiders know all the hidden rules you have to abide by untile after you break one and whack! You get your account suspended no warning.


    From reading all of the mods posts it seems clear no friendly explanation was given. Black and white, zero tolerance.

    I think Stephan's proposal is the right direction. sometimes people just don't know.

    but other than that, yeah rules are rules and I agree about not having vendors comments in the general population.

    Each member agrees to our Terms of Use BEFORE they can join or make a post. There are ZERO "hidden rules" here at KKF.

    AJ, once again you're stirring the pot and once again I'm noting it. I wonder how long you'll be given leeway to break the "hidden rules" before your account is suspended....first time...no warning.....zero tolerance? Doesn't sound like that's the case with you, eh?

    No, you directly insulted me earlier as well remember? Unprovoked I might add.

    Now that wasn't very nice. For what reason was this insult hurled by the way? In no way whatsoever did I personally attack you or insult you in any manner. I briefly explained why most here (myself included from personal Shun knife usage) don't care for the overpriced blades and your response was an ad hominem or worse, name calling. That's like the lowest form of countering a central point. The fact is from my personal usage of Shun knives, there is a lot better knife out there for the dollar. They just don't cut that great or stay as sharp as similarly or lesser priced knives. How does that make me smelly?

    This conversation has become terribly unproductive and has digressed into childish name calling. Reviews and complaints should always be welcome but personal grievances and attacks should be kept to private messages or better yet, not be offended so easily and let petty crap go. I'd be interested in Ken Onion's opinions on knives and why he chose the designs he has. Not defend, just give an insight to the thought process. I also think that everyone else who has chirped in has valid opinions and thoughts as well as a wealth of experience in using knives that shouldn't be dismissed. It always seems that we're verging on a civil, well rounded conversation but people let their emotions get ahead of their practicality in discussing a knife with an online community half or more of which are complete strangers.

    I am not at all a fan. I sent an intern home once for bringing a ken onion knife. I told him to go get a proper knife.
