Hello everyone, my name is Donnie (madurolover). I first became passionate about cigars 5 years ago. I had smoked a few over the years but never really cared one way or the other about them.

 After smoking a nice cigar that was gifted to me I soon discovered that I had a passion for them that I could not ignore. After buying a small humidor (50 count) LOL, I ventured into the online world to do more research on my new found hobby. As I was looking at several different forums I found what was formerly known as Club Stogie. I saw they had a "No Snob Policy which I liked since I had been jumped on by members at other forums for asking the noob questions. I signed up and soon found out that there was a brotherhood among cigar lovers like no other I had ever seen. I became a contributing member and have remained so to this day. I shared in the joys and the sorrows of my fellow brothers and became a better person as a result.

 After hearing of the buyout I was very disheartened because my "online home" was going to be gone. After a little soul-searching I decided that it was not the site that made it home, rather it was the people, many of which I call dear friends. I decided that I was going to do everything in my power to make sure that the members old and new alike would always feel as welcome as I did that first day I signed in. After speaking to a couple of the FOGs I decided to toss my name in the hat for moderator. As luck would have it I was accepted. I must admit that at times it has been very frustrating but overall I feel that if I can help one member to feel as at ease on his first few days as I did on mine that it is worth all of the hassle and negativity that has been thrown towards me.

That is how I got to be where I am now. I hope that after reading this you can understand that I have a deep passion for cigars, this forum, and most importantly, the MEMBERS.

Until next time... Keep Puffin!
