    o_O Am I the only one that is annoyed by the habit of a few newer reviewers repeatedly reposting their reviews in other people's threads???

    Examples:

    Perusing the hand check thread: Here's my review of the latest greatest!!!! No hand check in sight even. Just trying to get traffic to their own thread.

    Happens all the time in help threads - Poster: My atomizer won't smoke: Reviewer: Here is my review of that atomizer!!!

    Just now, read a thread started to talk about a future review of a couple of atomizers. Another reviewer bombs the thread with his review :facepalm:

    Most are :tldr: anyway

    P.S. Build your review thread and they will come - or not. Stop ruining other people's threads reviewer-peeps - very annoying, and it's not just the serial-video reviewer I won't name

    Rant over

    If someone is asking about the pros and cons on something I understand someone saying hey there are some reviews on that in the review section. But if it's a thread saying hey I made this new coil what do you think? Then someone says hey nice coil check out my review of the beast king.
    That is just unneeded and unwanted.

    Your vids are at least entertaining - even if they are mainly guides to hospital restrooms and such

    It's a new generation Lucy...everybody get's their 15 minutes of fame,everybody get a participation trophy whether they have any talent of not, and every dimwit is Justin Beiber on Youtube waiting to be discovered.....Personally I just want to ban all the scottish reviewers they all think they are Todd, and trying to figure out their accent is worse than a 30 minute stint of waterbaording...LOL..but seriously I think because of social media exhibitionisim is seen as normal.

    It actually doesn't bother me one way or another (which wasn't a choice and I didn't wanna be rude and clicky the last choice LOL). Sometimes it actually helps me understand a product if its mentioned and it intrigues me. Otherwise I just scroll right on by. Might've bothered me in the past but with dealing with huge, massive bundles of stress/anxiety from mine and fiance's family members I've learned to let shit go otherwise I'm liable to go nuclear on someone LOL. Those rants on SAY IT HERE are teeny tiny compared to the gasket I'd blow. LOL

    I think it depends. If it's simply to pimp a review eh, could probably do without. If someone is having a hard time and saying "Atomizer xyz is sucking for me, I'm getting no flavor/vapor or it's leaking all over the place" and someone else pipes up with "check out my review of it and how I wicked/built it" then it may be relevant. Maybe a description or video showing tips/tricks for wicking a particular atty to avoid flooding, dry hits, flavor improvement etc will help the op sort out their problem.

    If it's already been included in a review then it saves people trying to help to repeat themselves over and over and instead just point to existing info. If it's a link or whatever it's easy enough to skip if someone's not interested.

    Now if it's a matter of "I'm having problems with my ammit" and someone chimes in with "here's my peerless" review then sure it's probably not relevant. Just my .02 on it.

    What I don't understand is the need for video juice reviews ... seems to me a simple yay or nay would suffice with perhaps a few words regarding the flavor composition. I really have no interest in watching someone vape no matter how nice their clouds are. :D

    As to the original question, I tend to fall in with Synphul above. If they contain content that is pertinent to the subject at hand, they might prove quite helpful otherwise it's just spam.

    I respect those that put the time and effort into reviews...and I can respect their differences in opinion on products I have and or don't.

    I just don't care to see the link happy fucks needing to post their reviews in threads that are only partially relevant due the lack of traction it has in its own sub-forum.

    Most juce review videos are stupid to the point of being just funny. Worth a giggle - but not much more. "Oh wow man!" isn't exactly informative.

    You know what makes me give a Big Ole Eye Roll?

    Bitter people that do nothing but bitch. You see its easy to bitch and moan about everything. That doesn't take any skill, knowledge, wisdom, or expertise. That's why I can go to Home Depot right now and hire 3 Illegals to rip out my kitchen for practically nothing. Because it doesn't take any skill or knowledge. Tearing things down and demolishing them does not take any skill. Builders get paid more because it takes more skill and knowledge to build something than rip it down. It's the same thing when it comes to people that complain about every little fucking thing . What's even worse is when these bird's of a feather start to flock together. They get their own little private bitch sessions going and they start to believe their own bullshit. They start to believe their opinion is actually significant or that it actually makes a difference. I almost feel bad for them in a way. It's kind of like the kid that thought he was kool all through High School but then he goes to his 25 year reunion and finds out everyone thought he was a dick and all his classmates are leading a better life than him.

    I mean this is a vape forum right? I do come here for information about vaping right? As cute as your kid, dog, cat, or ferret might be I do not come here for that. I come here to talk about vaping first and foremost. I just don't understand how posting a link to a vape product in a vape forum is so offensive? Maybe we should create a safe space from vape products in the forum. This way all of the people that are so offended and inconvenienced will have a place to go and bitch , moan and cry, Sort of like a Snowflake Vape Section.

    I don't know. I was brought up to be happy for others and their good fortune, especially if they worked hard to get it. I am not the type to be jealous, petty, or screw anybody out of hundreds of dollars of gear and then sing that persons praises like they were a Vape God, but that's just me. In the end these people that do nothing but complain are kind of like the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is the saltiest body of water in the world. It's so salty that nothing actually grows there or lives in it because it can not. It's just too bitter and salty. It's too salty because all the Dead Sea does is take. There are no outlets to it just inlets. Life is kind of the same way for takers. If all you do is take, take, take, and never have an outlet, you eventually become bitter and salty.

    If I want to watch reviews, I'll go to YouTube and do just that. What it seems like, when it comes to reviews here...... Someone asks a questions. The "reviewer" responds with "Here watch my review" and leaves their spam link. They don't bother to answer the question or address the issue, so pertinent answers are left in the thread to 1 help the person asking 2 to help people in the future searching for the same answer to a problem.

    All these spam assholes are doing is trying to drive up views and have backlinks to their vids that drive up "relevance".

    They also drop these spam links, so they can't be challenged on a wrong answer.

    All that bullshit to get views, for some free shit from vendors. It's VAPE GEAR, not Ferraris people. Throw away vape gear. Act like a putz for a few dollars worth of Chinese throw away shit.

    Maybe those people bitching all the time have a point. One some reviewers fail to see because they are working too hard to try to be a vape "star".

    Because lets face it, there ARE a metric shit ton of reviewers and ALL of them are pining to be a star, liked by everyone, and get free shit. And when you bring up they are acting like an asshole about promoting their channel, they act like you slammed their little dick in the door.

    No one is fucking jealous of reviewers. If they were, they'd have their own channel. Any doofus with a cell phone and internet access can start a channel. Maybe we are tired of seeing their damn spam shoved in every fucking thread.

    I confess: I voted "Shut up Lucy - who asked you" only because it was there and it was funny.

    Here's a link to my review on what I thought about your third option in your poll http://bit.ly/18gECvy

    I don't understand why everyone wants to be a vape-famous reviewer at this point in time, since within the next year or 2 all there will be to review is some lame-ass closed tank/pod system that vapes at 6 watts on 75mg 90%PG juice made in some dingy lab by over-worked and underpaid children. lol It's time to look into the next profitable trend. ;)

    BTW: I found the bitching post about bitching by Deucesjack to be exquisite. :bliss:

    You know what gives me the Big Ole eye roll ...people that know shit all about building lecturing about building....yeah you go ahead and hire a bunch of illegals to demo your kitchen good luck with that...wait until one of them puts a sledge hammer through your water lines..or beats on a wall and knocks your grandmothers urn of the mantelpiece in the next room and granny is spread all over the floor ...or drags a saw across a counter top or across your wood floor...or cuts through a water pipe with a sawzall he thought was dead and water goes shooting everywhere and before you get to the shut off vaulve water has seeped down to the room below and stained the handpainted inlaid ceiling causing about a 800.00 of damage...but hey go ahead be my guest.

    Nope, it's always the same little clique. In fact I can look at a bitch and moan post and before it even gets liked I can tell you exactly who is going to like it because it's always the same little bitch and moan crew.

    22 people have voted so far. There are not 22 participants in this thread. We already know who the 2 shut up votes are. So 20 people think spamming the forum with reviews suck.

    Looks like a overwhelming majority think spamming should stop.....

    Naw man, what bothers you, is you are only into reviews for free shit. You like the gravy train and don't care about other's experience. You just want your free shit and will attack those that might get in the way of it.

    If you are referring to my links, the system blocked the first one becasue apparently VU blocks g o o . g l links.

    Did you even click my link(s) to see what it's all about? Or are you taking the path Deuce is bitching about and just bitching for the sake of ease? lol

    20 people are an overwhelming majority of voters.

    Which means you are the minority crying about most people not enjoying the spamming.

    Lmfao, yes you are so right because the minute I announced I was doing reviews all of the vape manufacturers stopped what they were doing and concentrated on send DeucesJack what ever they could. Lol, bro you have no idea what you speak of but the bitterness of your post actually proves my point quite easily.

    I do, you just don't want to openly admit I'm right.

    You aren't denying getting free shit to test, are you?
    Have you ever sent any of your business cards from the VU to vendors or manufactures? ;)

    FWIW: Deuce is right. Most vape manufactures (the popular ones) and retailers aren't sending out review samples like they used to. Many require that you have X amount of reviews under your belt with X amount of subscribers at this juncture.

    The market is saturated now. Like I said before, time to find the next "big thing" and hop on that wagon instead. There isn't much money to be made in vape like in the good old days. You may as well just sell widgets. Same difference in terms of profit margin.

    As a matter of fact I do get free shit all the time. Business cards? I don't have any VU business cards. If I did I sure as hell would use them.

    I don't deny that I get free stuff. I openly admit it in every review I do.

    Option #1 is so severely biased that it isn't really an option for me.
