I posted a link earlier to the site "(bleep)" and it was "bleeped" in the link although the link works dealing with Parker Vacumatics.


Sometimes profanity/spam filters can be a bit "dumb" and you need to be very specific when setting them. I learned that lesson years ago when I was tired of getting spammers on a forum where I moderated who often posted certain "male" drugs for sale. I set a filter to block them(since there would have been no reason for them to be discussed), but hadn't been specific enough and someone got dinged when asking for a repair "Specialist" as that word contained one of the blocked words.

I guess I can't refer to a specific (past?) retailer.  He/ she/ it becomes bleeped.

Since I don't know for sure what the thread/post was about, I can only suggest that you send a PM to Admin, or post a query to the Members Helping Members Forum, saying that you're having a problem but without using whatever word/phrase which got you bleeped).  However, given bunnspecial's reply, I'm guessing I know what thread you're talking about -- and who....

Apparently there were issues with what the person in question had claimed, which were refuted by more knowledgeable members, and the person was asked to cease and desist, or at least provide proof as to the claims being made.  And then things went downhill from there, at about a 90 degree slope.... :(

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
