Am I the only one that has noticed recently that far too many contest winners seem to either be someone with a recent loss (death) or someone with a serious illness (themselves or someone close to them) or that they are in such dire financial straights that they need to win to be able to keep vaping? I'm left wondering if some of these winners aren't scammers or BS artists. I'm not a cold-hearted person by any stretch. I understand that lots of people are going through very rough times, especially with the holidays only a few days away. That said, I don't think I would use my troubles to my advantage to win a contest. Vapers (myself included) are almost all former smokers so having health issues shouldn't be a surprise. If we spend a significant time on ECF, we also probably spend way too much money on our vaping habits. As for deaths, they suck but are also a fact of life. We've all been sick, we've all been through hard times financially and we've all experienced significant losses but is it right to use those stories to win free stuff? Am I alone in shaking my head at some of the entries I've seen? I know there are lots of legitimate stories out there but unless a contest is asking for "how using product X got me through a rough patch", I vote for no more sob stories in contest threads. I vow to never talk about illness, lack of $ or the loss of someone or something to win a contest on ECF and I hope that others join me. There's absolutely nothing wrong with telling your story and sharing it with the trusted community. What is wrong, IMHO, is using that to your advantage. Thoughts?
