We have renamed this forum to The Connoisseur because it fits the intended content better. Some people were including topics beyond the original scope of spirits, tobacco and gambling. Our goal wasn't to invite unsavory content to The Fedora Lounge but rather to organize existing content in a more convenient manner. This is much like what we did in creating the Radio forum. We gathered together all the threads on the subject and put them under one roof.
Also we want to be sensitive to the fact we have many young members here and don't want to encourage them to partake in activities meant for adults. The Connoisseur accomplishes this task. Kids won't be allowed to post in this forum.
Thank you for all the fanfare for The Connoisseur. We trust the name change will better convey our intention. Enjoy!
