    What Dee really means is that he loves it, and loves it even more when we blow up his mailbox.

    I just wanted to thank all the new members that are being active on this forum. This is what makes BOTL such a successful community. The comraderie and passion and lack of ego are what helps keep this place free of the drama I hear that other place have. I have always seen people use the BOTL Golden Rule: Do unto BOTL's as you would have BOTL's do unto you. For a place that is full of people from all over and many of whom have never met, BOTL is like Cheers except instead of a bar it's our own virtual cigar lounge. Welcome all and all are welcome.

    Oh yeah, don't forget to donate!

    When I first saw this post, I was 2 days old here and didn't really know what it meant. I got the mailbox reference and all, but I didn't truly understand it until a few weeks later, when I got my hands on a fellow brother's address and discovered first-hand how great it felt to make his day by "blowing up his mailbox"... and of course, to then have my own mailbox obliterated shortly thereafter. The joys of smoking a cigar that was bombed to you, as well as seeing a few sticks that you picked from your collection being proudly displayed by someone who deserved a good bombing, are joys that I cannot express enough.

    Seems that this thread needs to be bumped. All of us need to read or reread some of the topics pointed out in the first post.
