Nope. I'm mostly in the dark as well. Just know who was banned and how things sort of trickled down. Very disappointed to see some of the behavior here. It's surprising to me but I don't know most of these guys as much as others seem to.
This is very reminiscent of r/cigars from a couple years ago.

Oh c'mon man.
No need for low blows like that.
Take the higher road.

You're one of the good ones Dino. (People in general not anything specific)
I'm always available for a civil conversation like this.. I'm not a fan of arguing over stupid crap. Unless you say steaks should be cooked WELL DONE , then it's on like Donkey Kong..

As a group, puff is full of good people. Members and mods.

But just like anywhere else, there's people we clash with. My advice avoid them, block the posts, gripe to the wife about the moron on your cigar site that you wanna club like a harp seal.. I can't do it because I have to read all of it, but yunz guys have that option...

There's enough tension in the world today without us dragging it into our house here.

To think that some of these people are parents is an embarrassment.

Honestly, if your own child hates you enough to seek out living with someone else, maybe the issue isn't the child.


No need to seek professional help, someone has ALL the answers...

Nope. You're not the only one. I have an almost-2yo, summer over work in 100+ temps, childhood friends with cancer, etc. No time to fret over whatever is going on here.

A hard look at reality is hardly the same thing as a low blow.
In fact, just the opposite.

Go Ducks!

Pulling family into an internet argument...the opposite of class.
That's the last I'll say on it.

It was eventually acquired by our current site owners, with new moderators installed at that time. The "phoenix" that "rose from the ashes" is a direct result of the guidance of those moderators and their efforts to bring civility & decorum back to the forum, continued in exactly the same spirit by those who've been added to the team over time.


Who are the site owners?
