    Creepier than deleting negative posts, it appears Drew will re-write posts if they are not to his liking. Whether he does this with negative posts, turning them into raves, I can't say.

    Ten days ago, I asked a question on His forum in preparation to buying some of His liquids. Within a few hours Drew had changed my posting, making it vague and meaningless. Its still there, with my name attached as though I had said it. This is very offensive behavior reminiscent (on a very small scale) of Soviet 'history revision.'

    The edited post is here: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/nhaler/19125-lung-renewal-juice-27.html#post788434

    Post Comparison
    (my post)
    - Has anyone compared these to BestECig's "Healthcare" juice?
    (Drew's edit)
    + Has anyone compared these to any other liquids?

    Drew's action made me take Him off my potential vendor list and made me feel that the Healthcare liquid must be so much better than His Lung juices that I should just buy it.

    BTW: I've received and really do like the Healthcare juice and now use it, slightly modified with tropical fruit flavors, in the evenings.

    BTW 2: This post should of course be in the Nhaler forum. However, I believe its chance of remaining there unedited for very long is slim to none.

    Nothing is ever exactly as it seems to be, especially when money is involved...

    I've always had good service from Drew. but I am beginning to think that he and the nhaler team are more concerned with maintaining their "#1 in customer satisfaction" standing than dealing correctly with tough questions...

    Would it hurt to be wrong once in awhile, guys? I mean, we're all human-everyone makes mistakes...

    If I had a few hundred more posts here, and the rep to go along with it, I would suggest to the mod's that suppliers shouldn't have the ability to edit posts outright, for no reason, at any time they deem appropriate: at the moment, some of these actions amount to , as the OP stated, pretty serious censorship of information. Not only is this beyond reproach, in my book, but when done in the manner some are stating(and trust me, nhaler and Drew are NOT the only ones at fault here), it is quite simply un-American(with respect to those who are of other nationalities, of course).

    A forum exists for many reasons, not the least of which is to be able to freely express opinions and information for the benefit of ALL who use it...I don't give a **** if it's a "suppliers' " subforum or not.

    I'm hopeful that our posts can lead to a change in the order of things around here, that would allow for better accountability on the suppliers' end of things.

    The only correction made was the suppliers' name, which shouldn't be posted in another supplier's forum.

    That depends on the supplier....Janty lets it ride, so does My Freedom Smokes. Open and honest. Head-to-head comparisons not only help customers decide, but also enhance the quality of product and customer service :).

    That's exactly what I was getting ready to say --> He prolly should have PM'd you so you knew why he did it, but it looks to me like he was trying to cut out the direct comparisson of another supplier inside the nHaler forum. Some of the other vendors in here get a little wonky about that sort of thing so Drew probably just changed it to avoid any fallout... which obviously backfired, but my point being...

    Anyway, I hate that this has turned into let's bash a vendor day. I just hope all this gets worked out. I've never had an issue with Drew, and I've asked all sorts of questions and placed multiple orders and corrections no problems.

    Take care all,
    - Hap

    This would have to be the one rule on ECF that I think is just wrong. There is no reason a vendor should be able to edit/delete posts from thier sub-forum. Trolling/Spamming is one exception I could think of. But dissenting opinions? C'mon guys. Set up your own forum if you want everything to be seen through rose colored glasses.

    This is nothing against Drew, just my take on free market forums. Let the customers see the good and bad so they can make a truly informed buying decision.

    If I understand correctly, they pay a fee for their subforum, which means that they effectively did "set up [their] own forum"
    But, that'd be why other subforums, such as this one, exist. :)

    I take it from so many post's that NHaler has good products and good service and I'd agree that vendor bashing be put aside, but the OP has shown that certain practices are unacceptable some. A practice/problem rampant in the TW thread, also. Now, can someone here with computer savvy help my ol' friend here??

    I just would like to reiterate-this problem is not Nhaler-specific at all. It is a forum-wide issue, and it just so happens that Drew has been taking flack all morning for multiple issues-some really petty, and one in particular that is troubling.It seems some people are just looking for a chance to be in the spotlight here, IMO.

    Anyway, I've said my piece.

    My comment was not entirely based on this person's dealing with Nhaler, more a comment on how ECF deals with vendors who pay to use the site for advertising. I can not think of anywhere else that I as businessman can filter out complaints to my liking.

    Why thank you sir. I do look rather dapper at that!

    But if I PM the OP w/ my ? that would take away from the subtle attempt at a thread-jack...:D
