I don't know what to do about the vaper cyber-bullying attack I've been under these past few weeks. I really don't. It was just happening in private messages, mainly on my youtube channel but the newest cartomizer review video I did has pulled them out of the woodwork and into open comments on my youtube channel.

There's been at least one other vaper I know this has happened to, another woman vaping videographer. She's dealt with it pretty much by going away. I didn't know how to help her either, other than going to her channel, giving her thumbs-ups, and leaving encouraging notes. But the vaping cyber-bullies won and drove her away, or at least off of youtube and I rarely see her popping up anyplace else. I'll leave it to her if she wants to let you know who she is, if she's gotten some peace, I don't want to stir things up again for her.

Here's my plea for help from you, the vaping community. Please go to my youtube channel, subscribe, and give me a thumbs up on my videos, not to say you agree with my old-lady ramblings, but just as a way of saying, "I'm with ya." Heck, ya don't even have to watch my videos if you don't want to. Maybe I've just gotten to old and feeble to be doing videos any longer. If so, I need to hear that too. Any of us who is not welcome or wanted in this community needs to at least be told to leave respectfully, yeah?

    That sucks! do not be forced close your self off from the world. i watched a few of your vids when i was just starting out in my vape lifestyle, if not for you and some other youtubers i would have been overwhelmed and not taken this path in my life. do not let stupid people with nothing to do but hate!! rule your life. like my wonderfull wife always says when someone gives you a bowl of hate make them some hateraide maybe they will go away but if not we are better than that!!!!
    remember tell some one what we do and why...

    Don't go away Jan. There are lots of haters but there are even more ppl that follow you (of course, including me). You're a great reviewer and person. Never stop!

    Youtube, like loads of other internet things, can be amazingly useful and entertaining, and also an outlet for mediocre people who feel they can be abusive with no RL consequences.
    I do watch quite a lot of performed music videos for instance, and the contrast between the musicianship of the authors and the emptiness, or abusiveness, of many comments is just appalling.
    Just ignore them. They really don't deserve even to be considered more than static on the radio. If you want to switch stations you are bound to hear some, but it's just meaningless noise ;)

    It is usually the place of small minded mealy mouthed ...... to throw stones at people that contribute and make a difference.

    You do. Be proud of that and never let them win.

    I cannot begin to articulate how much this sort of behaviour irritates me, if you hadn't guessed.

    Cheer up hon. Let not the slings and arrows of a few drown out your voice. I may not always agree with what you say, but you've taken the effort to say it, which is more than most and I respect that.

    Big hearts and hugs from someone who has found your videos sometimes entertaining and helpful.

    You have been one of my favorite reviewers since I started. Your easy to understand vids made modding understandable. Thank you. I hope you find a way to continue w/o the stress of the negative idiots compromising your health. But know you have made a difference and been a great help and are VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! Be well!

    If subscription keeps out the problem people, then subscribing's what I'll do! Thank you for all the good information you've shared so far and I hope you can keep giving. You have helped me get more out of vaping and I'm sure I'm one of thousands. Best wishes!

    I only discovered your videos recently. You almost got me thinking about making my own beer as well! Your series on future of vaping was one of the most insightful materials I've seen around. You have a wonderful presence, and I am sure it's not just a "screen persona".

    I actually still hope this is some kind of April Fools joke, but if it isn't know this: you made many people's life a little better with your videos, and there is no greater achievement. Your choice is your own, and we should probably respect it.

    I do not have words that are sufficiently vile to describe the character of anyone who'd try to hurt someone like you.

    Thank you, and good luck.

    SteelJan your videos are fun, very informative, and you should keep doing them and not let the very few jealous bullies knock you down !! Jan you just need to be strong when you put yourself in front of this community and voice your opinions and do reviews, we've all gotten this before from the hecklers,, Stand up for yourself your a strong woman Jan with apparently lots of engineering experience, the community needs & wants people like you. So stand strong and don't look over your shoulder or go backwards and only keep moving forward, your better then this to let a few get to you

    Please let this be an April Fools joke.

    Who cares about some small-minded a**holes who want to be internet bullies? You can't let them win!!

    Steeljan, you want what's best for vapers, and for the vaping community as a whole. I really do hope you do come back, and do what you do best--be smart and caring and informative in all your videos.

    Steeljan, We love ya! I think the Volt community will be hardest hit by your departure. You have to do what is right for you. I just want to wish you the best for the future and hope this will run off you like water off a ducks back.

    i want you to stay, can't you just block them on youtube and keep us good guys? these sick freaks attacking you may think they're anonymous otherwise they wouldn't act out that way.

    BIG THUMBS UP. You are not to old nor feeble to be doing vaping reviews. I started vaping at 51 years old & today just started to convert my Mom to vaping. So far so good. You are needed & appreciated, and will be missed if you leave.

    I have greatly enjoyed your videos but was part of the silent majority that benefitted from your efforts and didn't support you as much as you needed. I am sorry that some small minority felt the need to villify you and hurt your feelings. I hope you can find a way to put these few malicious souls in perspective with the vast majority of vapers who respect and appreciate your efforts. Thanks for all you've given to the vaping community. I hope you feel better soon.
