    I challenged some Helmets that the above named person posted for discussion and was nuked
    for even mentioning that there could be any issues,,,,heres a question,,,why couldnt we discuss the origin and
    characteristics of the helmet instead of just banning me? I can guarantee you if I posted some of his helmets
    I would be under a microscope

    Hey Nibbler:

    Man... Please, drop at least this victim-hood thing and put on your big boy pants – it is unbecoming.

    This is disparaging:

    It's also mean spirited and hateful.

    You weren't talking about helmets, but spewing similar trash about the owner of the helmets. That is called "ad hominem;" look it up.

    People at GHW like discussing helmets, it is a helmet forum. You can criticize helmets all day long and not get banned. There are only a few rules, number one is being respectful towards other members. You had an axe to grind, knew full well what you were doing when you went down that road, and you knew the outcome. Just quit this "Woe is me!" attitude.

    Kind regards,

    Thats simply a bunch of baloney and you know it,,
    That comment alone is not enough to ban anyone,,,unless they were just waiting for me to twich
    say anything even remotely 'disparaging",,no,,they had me in their sights for being a non conformist and believing all the hype they are selling

    besides that truly is what is happening here,,,weather intentional or not

    I called his "turtle shell" lufty a "movie prop" and gave my opinion of it,,,
    instead of discussing the virtues of said helmet,,I was tossed,,,stop trying to make it look like I was in the wrong
    I'm done discussing this subject here,,lets discuss helmets
    This is the most comical helmet I have seen in awhile:

    Your a nasty individual with shit for brains when it comes to helmets and probably anything else for that matter.

    Why don't you do the world a favour and fuck off for good?

    Because that's not what people like this do. They'd rather insult the messenger than discuss the object. This is what people do when they don't have an argument. They talk about "vet bring backs" or "one lookers" or "esteemed experts" or "old collections" or their "fifty years of experienced" or "lightning bolts coming from the sky." Or they just call you a "nasty individual with shit for brains." Its easier than defending a shiny trinket.

    Hey, Left Nad....instead of putting all the heavy lifting on us use your expertise of spotting fake helmets to use and tell us why it's fake !
    Oh wait you cant. Just like m45 cant. There is no proof. It's strictly opinion. Opinions are like ass holes everyone has one.. Yours isn't worth shit and never has been. You, as I labeled you are a sock puppet and all you did is repost M45's posts over on GHW and everyone saw what you were doing.

    The main Issue and now as cross forum debate is how M45 was banned but somehow was able to get onto a private forum and steal photos and repost here and critic members helmets. A total troll move and a bad way to get a point across.

    This is why we are where we are here today..IMHO

    I tried to continue postings lids here and keep the discussion intelligent and relevant and on point. But, chaos and insults seem to be easier to post for most folks.

    I don't view the discussion of camo helmets so much as spotting fakes, but more like learning how to spot real ones. I ASSUME that they are all fake, and I then make the helmet prove itself. If someone wants to show off a piece, that's cool, but I'm not going to play along and try to prove a negative, that it isn't real.

    Regarding the recent helmet, I can't pass judgment on the turtle luftwaffe helmet show, not based on one picture, but the pattern immediately makes me suspicious. Its uncommon and is thus less likely to be original, in my opinion, but that doesn't mean it isn't. Camo helmets are all about opinions, unless you painted it yourself during WW2, there really isn't a way to confirm authenticity. If anyone has other shells to post, I'm game for discussing them. This neverending stream of insults is tiring, and its pathetic quite honestly. I can watch the news if I want to see people insult each other over and over.

    IMHO, the subject "turtle shell" Lw. helmet cannot be authenticated nor de-authenticated from the photograph and maybe not any photographs. If the helmet has been cleaned or something applied to it to make is shine like that the appearance would be changed. These helmets were, regrettably, cleaned and had varnishes and such applied.

    So, I am unimpressed with pronouncements that it is fake based upon that photograph. I am also unimpressed with pronouncements that it is an unquestionable original from the photographs. Let's keep this on a non-emotional, non-profane, non-insult level and discuss the artifacts. I'm going to start issuing avatars and nicknames, then it's Infernus.
