I received a bomb with a note that said "as a newbie a friendly reminder to remember the proper etiquette of a bomb is not to post up pictures of the bomb or divulged what was in it. This is not looked up kindly by the members." 

Help, I'm confused. I've seen countless posts w pictures and gratitude by those bombed on the forums. Or, is it the personal preference of the bomber? But, he mentions "other members [negative feelings about this]. 

I don't want to aquire any bad habits as a newbie.

Interesting, I think the opposite. I think it's nice to recognize the person doing the good deed.

I agree. Acts of kindness should be recognized. Maybe PM the bomber and ask for clarity?

There are threads whose sole existence is for the purpose of testifying to the greatness of a bomb and bomber. No hint of sarcasm? If not I'm wondering if there are any ISOM's involved.

Same here, If I bomb someone and don't want it advertised, I will include a note along those lines, but other than that... Pics or it didn't happen!

Also, only been on here for 7 days and already received a bomb, Geeks are getting ruthless!! Welcome to the madness!

Good idea to ask, but respect if the bomber didn't wanted it posted

I'm guessing it had ISOM's in it and the bomber doesn't want to spread that they are partaking of them. Just a guess, as I have had this happen to me before. It is someting that is up to the bomber's discression if you ask me. If they don't want to have everyone know, all up to them. You could always send them back if you don't agree? LOL Or heck, just forward them to me, I won't tell a soul!

Maybe you got the bomb from an admirer on the "other" cigar forum where you posted this exact same post! Since you know who sent the bomb, why don't you figure out if your question belongs here at Cigar Geeks or at the "other" forum (or maybe there's even a third or fourth forum where your this belongs . . . you've been making the rounds!)

AT CG, unless it was an ISOM bomb, it is ALWAYS proper etiquette to give credit for the kind gesture and post pics. In fact, you will be beaten with a wet noodle if you fail to post pics. Cigar Geeks do not have "other members" that are negative about bombs.

This seems complicated and I'm curious now, did the bomb in fact come from a CG member and if not, why is this posted here? I have to admit, I'm confused, must be all the uni dimensional sticks I've been smoking

Copy-Paste posts across multiple forums is a great way to cause mass confusion. Perhaps post only on the forum from which you were bombed instead of "post whoring it up" across the world of cigar forums looking for the answer that fits.

Look, if I bomb somebody, I don't do it for the accolades and whatnot, but it's nice to be recognized, if that makes any sense. As for etiquette, what the hell is that? You tell Emily Post to shut her piehole or I'm gonna post the sex-tape on every cigar forum I know of!

Seriously?

You answered your own question in your original post - dude, there is an entire thread/forum devoted to Bombs and acknowledgements thereof. Of course you've seen acknowledgements on this site.

You also answered your own question in your rant. Why would you call out a fellow Geek (even if anonymously) when his/her note told you explicitly not to? Just send a PM or a note to thank them... move on.

Then you drop turd on the entire community because you got an uncomfortable question?

Maybe this is a little more heartfelt: "I'm going to miss you... Buh bye."

So instead of spamming 10 different cigar communities with the same posts and seeing what happens, why not pick one and try to become a member of the community? If you don't like that community, then move on to another but wasting everyone's time with stuff you've posted in 10 other forums at once isn't a way to endear yourself around here.

**Disclaimer** This is just a general question, im just soliciting thoughts and opinion. This is not directed at any specific member or members. 


So, if you were "just soliciting thoughts and opinion", why are your knickers getting all knotted? We're just responding to your solicitations.

When I got back into cigars circa 2008, I bounced around several cigar forums before I found Cigar Geeks. I got fed up with the pomposity of most. I mentioned the fact that the first box of cigars I bought were Fuente Brevas Royales on one forum and was lambasted for buying mixed filler cigars! The ridicule got even worse when I posted that I bought a Thompson sampler and actually enjoyed the Don Lugo Robustos.

Some of us around here are crusty curmudgeons to be sure, but generally speaking, this is the best bunch of folks I've ever met on the internet. I'm not making apologies for the didactic nature of some of the responses to your post, but, it is what it is and whatever. Enjoy the folks where you can't say "Thanks" and show off what you've been given.

I received a bomb with a note that said "as a newbie a friendly reminder to remember the proper etiquette of a bomb is not to post up pictures of the bomb or divulged what was in it. This is not looked up kindly by the members."

Help, I'm confused. I've seen countless posts w pictures and gratitude by those bombed on the forums.  Or, is it the personal preference of the bomber? But, he mentions "other members [negative feelings about this].

I don't want to aquire any bad habits as a newbie.

Houston. Thanks for the advice. I made the necessary corrections (let me know if my address is available to be seen-why I don’t know? But ok)

Look forward to great times on the forum.

Thanks much.



This is where I saw him not lasting around here!

Before we get to Bombing Etiquette, let's talk about basic Posting Etiquette. Don't delete an entire post!!! Be a man and stand behind what you've already blasted to the world. Either post a separate retraction or ETA the original. C'mon now!

And I don't just say that to bust your balls but because my personal stance on Bombing Etiquette "seems" like it could deviate from the public opinion round here, and just MAYBE I could've seen your point, if only I could still read it!!!

But now all I know of you is that you said something to piss everyone off, AND hid that something. Not really a way to make an entrance...But welcome!

If you want to be a member of our community, then act like one. You joined at least 10 other cigar forums in a 1 week period and cut and pasted all of your "witty" posts to each one of them. That's called trolling. Someone that wants to contribute to a community should INTERACT with other members with original responses and real conversations, not canned responses that are being regurgitated on another dozen forums.

We've seen lots of trolls come and go, and we are not heartbroken to see them run off. So I guess its your choice.
