Thanks to everyone who showed their support after my plea for help. I've discussed this with my IRL (in real life) friends and family as well as many vaping friends and they have encouraged me to walk away, for my own health and safety. So that's what I'm doing. You all stay strong and look out for one another please. Congratulations on everyone who got off the analogs, what an accomplishment! Vape on.

There's been too many messages coming in over the past day or so for me to answer them. I can't sit at the computer nor peck on it for very long at a time. But I do appreciate the kind words.

Thanks again,

SteelJan out

    Thank you, SteelJan, you have been a great help to me many times. Be well. I hope to see you again soon.

    Miss you already! Your mental and physical health are more important than having to deal with bullies, so I think you did the right thing. While I selfishly hope you'll re-enable your old videos, I understand your decision to completely walk away. Though never say never, maybe one day you'll want to poke back in! I'll be your first view!

    I can't imagine what you must be going through. Please know how many you've helped and how many of us truly care about you.
    You have to do what's right for you... so please take care of yourself first and thank you for all you've done to help vapers everywhere.

    Feel better Jan. You always came across as a very warm, caring, and down right beautiful person. Thank you for your videos.

    If one of you bullies wonders upon this message: SHAME ON YOU!

    Wow... I can't believe this has happened.

    I guess a bunch of ...... must feel really good about themselves for running off someone as sweet and intelligent as you Steeljan.

    I'm really sad to see you go, and I hope that you will bring back your past videos, they are too valuable to be lost forever.

    Much love,

    Dear Jan~
    I hope this move gives you peace and quiet, and that you regroup in some way that we can hear from you again. Maybe in some other form, Something! Can't even imagine I'll never know how you are or what new thing you're into!
    I feel sick and sad that this is how you leave us. But it is necessary from what I saw in your video. You need to step back and regain that wonderful spirit. Then you could be an effective and articulate spokesperson for all that have been bullied.
    You're a nice lady-we'll miss you terribly.

    Jan I understand your position. I also know one very important thing to be true. You, grimm,Phil,vaping monkey and the other video reviewers out here are pillars of the community. Many people will try to silence or discourage you and make no mistake they will attempt. I have a solution i would like to propose that will allow you to control the feedback you recieve and a method of filtering the unwanteds. I am offering to host your site. I will cover the monthly costs of the site. You control the content, you control the comments and you lock out any unwanteds in your own private space. If there is interest enough we could make a site dedicated to reviewers and still you would maintain control over the feedback. No more ugly comments. No more spam from obnoxious jerks because you would control the flow. Jan. We need you. We need your work. I dont hope to pressure you into something that you wish not to do but more to offer you an opportunity to directly control any portion of your website. It would create an enviroment you would directly control and ultimately it would be as private as your home. You could remove someone who you decided did not belong. Please consider the offer. If you so choose read more here:

    I keep hoping this news is some horrible April Fool's Day joke, but am accepting and saddened if it isn't. Jan, your health is more important and I support your choice. I just wish it wasn't because of the dark side of the vaping community which will now give us all something we'll have to think about and confront.
    Be well Jan!

    Jan, I have watched almost every you posted. I have the utmost respect and admiration for you. I do how ever realize that your health and well being has to take first priority. You have been a true inspiration to me and my wife who both started vaping just over a year ago. Your knowledge, advise, technical expertise and trusted opinion will be seriously missed. I only hope that at some future date you will grace us once again. Thank you for all your time and effort in helping the vaping community. I for one sincerely appreciate you for the wonderful person you are and your willingness to help others.

    Know that you have inspired many people and they truly appreciate all that you have contributed to the vaping community.

    I wish the very best for you and have every bit of faith that you will find the inner strength in yourself to overcome all.

    You are an amazing person!

    Your videos were awesome! I can't believe that a bunch of ......, jealous of your knowledge, would have the audacity to bully you! I wish you the best. Hope your health gets better and you come back, like lawnmower and mow them down!

    ya know, just the other day, I thought about leaving a comment on one of your videos, I was thinking of saying that I love your videos and your personality and that I wish you were my mom or grandma or something, now I feel really bad that I did not, because maybe if I did it might have counteracted some of that hate. Sad to see you go and you will be sorely missed.

    I'm really late in finding this. And very sad to hear it.
    Your videos were always fun and informative.
    Take care!
