Great list to get a new guy up to speed. Cheers.
That's exactly what it just did for me this is the kind of great information that would be greatly appreciated and extremely useful to find as a sticky in either introductions as a "Newbies to cigars information" or in General cigar in discussion as the same. As a newbie I would appreciate a thread as a sticky that I could refer to for 'General Cigar Common Knowledge'.

I like to send SFR, but LOVE to send MFR or LFR. A PIF should always be sent ASAP or PDQ. My TAT obsession is OOC. (y)
You like to send a SMALL FLAT RATE, but LOVE to send MEDIUM FLAT RATE or LARGE FLAT RATE. A PASS/PAY IT FORWARD should always be sent AS SOON AS POSSIBLE or PDQ...whatever that means. Your TATUAJE obsession is OUT OF CONTROL!?

Or is this a trap!? LOL.
