I think stating clearly what is generally accepted behavior in a pass (or any community activity) is a good thing. It avoids the assumption that everyone "should" know what they are doing, and makes sure everyone is operating on the same guidelines.

Making sure everyone knows what to do ensures that EVERYONE can have fun. New members can be confident in joining a pass, and moderators can be sure a pass will go well.

What I am getting from this is:
1. Go into a pass with good intentions and consideration for other people in the pass.
2. Be generous (it's good karma anyways!)
3. If you have questions, ask! It's okay to ask!

Everyone makes mistakes, kudos to those who are awesome enough to own their mistakes! Now we can all move forward and continue to enjoy this great community.


I think #3 above is overlooked far too often with regard to more than just cigar passes!

Except for the few cases of outright thievery Paul mentioned, it seems the main reason for problems in cigar passes has been the lack of knowledge.

Including these rules of cigar pass etiquette along with any other clear and specific instructions would obviate much of the problems.

Also, as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, whoever starts the pass should establish the measurement of perceived value, such as "the average of the regular posted price of one stick from a box at Famous, CI and JR as of 7/20/2010." Ever better, the pivot man on any cigar pass should actually do the math and include the calculated prices for each stick in the box going out ... one or more special cigars in the pass should be featured and explained (believe it or not, there are newer cigar smokers out there who, as often as not, have no idea).

From what I read here, it seems clear that "honest mistakes" such as two $6 cigars don't equal a $12 cigar and other procedural rules, may not be intuitutively known, especially to the uninitiated.

When you clearly spell it all out in writing out when you start your pass, the likelihood of problems is greatly deminished.
