    I recently joined this group a couple months back. Since then my experience here has been amazing. I would have to consider myself a new piper. In the past month or so I have received a couple packages of samples from a member on here. Each time I received a heads up they were coming so needless to say I was expecting them. But yesterday I got a surprise in the mail. (The duck tape was a nice touch :D ) 7 Different kinds a baccy and 2 briars!!!!!! To top it off I also got a real nice letter warning me 1 of the baccys will kick my butt :D What a great holiday gift. I am floored by all the nice people on here! I pray that one day when my knowledge and collection of pipes build that I will be able to share with y'all and return the kindness. You guys have really become a blessing in my life, thank you.

    I couldn't agree more. This forum is full of great people and it is a great resource for learning about our shared hobby/passion/obsession.

    Totally agree, new here myself but the forum seems full of very helpful, knowledgeable people.
    Smoked a pipe for a lot of years but never to old to learn.

    Regards

    Marc.

    Yes, I was really charmed by the good nature of the people who frequent this forum. I haven't felt the need to look anywhere else.

    I've always been told duct tape will fix whatever a BFH can't solve ... but yes, there are a LOT of generous folk here, and I have also received things in the mail myself from this crew. In fact, the first PM offering me some samples hit my inbox within two hours of joining and shortly after one of my first posts here! From my own experience, I would guess you're just supposed to enjoy and pass things on at some point.

    Now, if we could just get that great sense of community to reverberate out into the World, what a wonderful World it could be.

    Best forum I have ever been in. Hands down.

    We really do have a fantastic group of guys and gals here. I can definitely say that I've been on both ends of the generosity on this forum, and I look forward to continuing it.

    That pretty much sums things up.

    Yes, this is a great and generous community. I have talked a couple of people into signing up for this forum and even got one of those into pipe smoking. I have received several samples from folks here and have sent samples to a few. The idea of PIF (pay it forward) is alive and well on PSF as is the wealth of knowledge.

    There is a reason I told you to join here buddy--its the best place on the internet. Think of it as the opposite of that place with a number and a channel with trolls but no bridges. (I am afraid to write it properly and have it show up on google...)
