    We’re also pretty damn nice here, and polite and smart, etc. They seem to be threatened by the fact that we don’t need fascist rules to have a good forum.

    Well, there's no doubt that the moderators here assume that we're adults and can conduct ourselves as such -- somebody has to be a REALLY MAJOR ASSWIPE for the mods here to get punitive with them. But even with the routine ordinary give and take of adult humans, I'd say that most here are pretty damn civilized. That /ignore feature is wonderful too. :D

    I’ve read some old posts here where some folks were pretty nasty but I didn’t recognize their names at all, so I think they’re not hanging out a lot. Even then the mods here didn’t close down the thread, they just mentioned to them to cool it.
    The last thread that I read at the other place, they were talking about how dead the place was and a lot of the older members/vets were discussing over moderation and members being banned. It was a great discussion until the Classwife person shut down the thread for being OT!!
    Tapatalk doesn’t have the ignore feature, but I can see how it would be useful. :wave: :wave:

    Oh yeah, those fascists don't permit ANY discussion of their moderation; that's one of their most VERBOTEN! subjects. Kinda like an Iron Curtain state, or "Fight Club".

    They have only their moderators to blame for the site dying. Maybe it will eventually be completely dead, which would be justice.

    It’s their fucked up Vape Club. The first rule is: don’t mention the over moderating!
    The thread that Classperson shut down was just a “Hello, is anyone around?” kind of thing. So she illustrated what the complaints about overmoderating were about! There was no topic to be off about, actually!

    It seems like some members there think the rules are needed. Why, I don’t know. They’re afraid that they’ll be like VU?

    They also mentioned Oliver never being around, which I’ve got to say I agree with.

    That's probably a mercy. I see him on Twitter sometimes, and have never yet seen anything he has said to have any socially redeeming value. The guy who uses the username "Rolygate" on ECF, however, turns out to be a VERY nice guy, since I've encountered him at Quora -- many enlightening posts there, and it was his site, http://www.ecigarette-politics.com , that first began my education in how the Tobakko Kontrol Kartel has carried out their deception/propaganda campaign against smoking and smokers and nicotine, over the last 30+ yrs. Greedy, unethical bastards.

    I read a lot of Rolygate’s posts in the library over there. They were great! I first saw the “moved on” tag with him, which I thought meant he had died or something!
    I’ll check out his site. Too bad he didn’t come here!
    It’s all about money and these bastards never have enough, it seems. If you’re making hundreds of millions or billions, how do you need more, I wonder!!

    For some reason I've never known, they use "moved on" to signify "banhammered". One might think they're actually ashamed of banning useful, intelligent members... but they're much too stupid to be ashamed of anything.

    But that actually surprises me about Roly; he WAS some kind of moderator there, so apparently not even the moderators there are immune to the fucking fascist idiocy.

    If you want to read more of Roly's intelligent thinking about smoking, vaping, and nicotine, his site is still there, and he's at Quora; his name is Chris Price.

    Wow I think ROly was Moderator and now they are banning the Moderators? Going to be the Returd and Asswife talking to Danny the Douche pretty soon.

    Actually, the way I heard the older members/vets talking about the bannings (mostly about Roxy) on that last thread I read, I’m not surprised he took off. If you can’t reason with their fascist stupidity, it must’ve gotten really old.

    His Vaping 101 articles were so fricking good. They were hidden in the library with no views, and I started giving them a bunch of likes, in my first week there. How to win friends and influence the mods!! :giggle: No wonder I got paranoid there! Lol

    It’s only Classwife left as mod there, I think. I think the other ones you mentioned are “moved on”, — or “resting peacefully” whatever that means!

    Well one did pass away but I have no sympathy for that two faced Wunt. Are you telling me the Retired1 asshole is no longer there? He loves to harass new members and ban them. Would be true Karma if someone met up with him and gave him the Hammer. After seeing this I went to look at some of the posts. Same shit, same shit ass forum.

    Hmm... there was one mod there, a female, that I'd heard had died, of some kind of cancer. Can't remember her name, but I think it was colon cancer. I didn't much care for her, but it really and truly sucks to quit smoking and then be taken out by cancer anyway, and not even lung cancer! But hey, non-smokers die of lung cancer, so I guess it really doesn't matter that much what you do or don't do; until medicine can think of something more effective than just cutting stuff off or blasting with radiation or poisoning a person and hoping it kills the cancer before it kills the person, cancer will go on.

    I’m pretty sure he’s not there. Classperson is the only one showing her face, and deleting posts etc. Oliver may’ve cut down the staff, or they just left.

    It is the same old thing. I checked them out about 2 weeks ago, and it’s dead boring! VU is so much cooler, and we are way more interesting.

    True, their “cure” will just kill people faster, since it’s so toxic! It’s crazy! Makes you wonder if that’s why they do it, after charging an obscene amount for treatment.

    I find it hard to believe the Returd would have left on his own and highly doubt he was banned.

    Maybe he really “moved on” then? :giggle: I shouldn’t laugh at his possible death, though.

    Because he never offers any help or advice only reprimands people and gives warnings or bans. If he does offer advice it is usually incorrect or not helpful at all. He is such an ass he thinks his way of vaping is the way everyone should vape.

    What to do with assholes like that? There’s no right or wrong way to vape. It’s what you like that counts. They really are fascists, it’s crazy! But we’ve got it going on at VU, so they can kindly piss off!

    Many have gotten banned for telling The Returd just that or reminding him that he used his Admin or Moderator Powers to compensate for his short comings~! LMFAO

    I'm new here but I'd like a badge! I'm here seeking a place to learn and contribute and be able to ask questions, without being told "that question has been asked before, get the fuck out of here!". Apparently, reddit is NOT the place to learn about vaping.

    Hi Tyger, great to find so many friends here.
    Screwed up and lost 3yrs before I knew it.
    When I got back to vaping I was stunned by the numbers of people who ecf was banning including myself. All I tried was to get a temporary pw to get back into my account...
    Then I remembered that Joe had opened another store and this system had just started taking off, i digress but it sure is good to see so many of you here now. Heck, so lost now. Even Fancee juice is gone. Cheers
    Tim

    Tim, if you have any questions, just ask. You won’t get any judgmental attitudes or anything here. You’re right, this forum is home! You’ll get better advice here, rather than at ECF. No one judges how you vape here.
    What are you vaping right now, brother?

    Oops, nic salts are just a more alkaline form of nic. It makes it easier to get higher mg juice to have a smooth throat hit. Shop around online, or check out Gothic Vapor they have affordable juice and you can get 24:and 36mg. Also, the SauceLA has good prices and good juice. Cheap sample packs. Don’t be shy, bro.

    I would like the badge as well. Wan on that forum for a few months until I found this one. Tired of being out down for asking a question that was already asked 2 years ago. I dont know how they expect me to find anything. That forum is set up rather ridiculous. Happy to have found my home here. Thanks

    Thanks, Tyger. I feel the same way about you!! I got my VU tank bands. Yay, they look cool on my tank! Thanks for the help with that. I hope Joe is feeling good, and that the both of you have a great Labor Day. :hug: cloud: PS: I love this forum. I’m thrilled to have found it, especially after ECF where I was miserable! So grateful that you and Joe began VU.

    That's terrific @Rhianne ! So glad everything arrived in order, and that you're pleased. Sorry about the delay and mixup but thanks for letting us get it sorted.

    Joe has been doing SO much better, and his tests have been coming back with glowing reports!-- so things have started to feel much more "normal", thanks for asking.

    We're so glad to have you here, and appreciate the sunny contributions you bring. Make yourself at home; our house is your house!
