Judging by the replies here, I'm not surprised.

RE: Disgusted!!!
There can be side effects to vaping. I am prone to getting rashes under my nose at the corner of my mouth when using certain juices. Some juices upset my stomach. And of course we are prone to some dehydration - drink water. All that said it is way healthier than smoking. I don't see an issue discussing possible side effects - that is how we find ways around them. But rip trippers video was completely out of line. Of course his reviews are crap as well. Now I don't see anti-vapers getting any material from RP. First they are unlikely to watch his videos and second clearly he is a shill. The best thing is to boycott the SOB - just don't watch his videos and see how fast his sponsors drop him. I pretty much watch videos to see the unpackaging and the menus - I take everything with a grain of salt - as should everyone. These guys - even the honest ones - are just giving their opinions. I can bet that some of my opinions of certain devices will be different from yours. My taste in ejuice will be different from yours too.

No need to go on about rip trippers. We know he is a paid and bought man. He makes his living promoting a product. He is like the guys at the county fairs selling you the 'best' broom in the worlds the 'best' cooker you have ever used, etc. So sad.

RE: Disgusted!!!
All I know is, his recommended coil for the Aromamizer is dead wrong, and almost everyone that buys this thing uses it.  *facepalm*

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: Disgusted!!!
I still watch some of his old videos from time to time, he did a great job showing how to build complex coils and some of his older reviews were good in my opinion. Yeah his persona is annoying, and yeah he's sold out. I guess on some level I understand it, because almost everyone in almost every other industry has sold out too. So yeah, it bugs me that he's gone this way. But at the same time, I personally don't think it's worth it for the entire vaping world to shit all over him constantly. He's just one guy, and honestly I'm sick of hearing "dude, what a tool" everywhere I go. 

By the way, I'm not talking about you guys. Here we've been civil and it's all good, just a discussion. But the rest of the internet is crucifying him constantly and maybe he deserves it, but it's getting old. I can barely go on reddit without seeing people slamming him constantly, and really, is it affecting him at all? People are just ranting so much about him and how awful he is, and it's been going on for weeks, I just wish people would find someone else to hate on for a while. 

Again, I don't mean this to sound like I'm picking a fight or saying anything negative about you guys, I'm just commenting on what I've seen basically everywhere else. Everyone on here has been civil in presenting your own opinions, and for that I'm grateful. This forum is my sanctuary from the rest of the Internet Tongue

RE: Disgusted!!!
I understand what you're saying Michael but you got to admit - He dun goofed! especially using vaping as a scapegoat for promoting a clearly affiliated product.

It's not so much what he did it but the way he did it that has everyone ragging on him. At the end of the day though, if you can't take the heat.. stay out of the kitchen. There's other popular youtube personalities out there that receive far more hate than Rip does.

Another thing to consider is that we're fighting the very survival of vaping and people's tempers are on a razor thin wire right now.

RE: Disgusted!!!
That's true, mate, vaping is in a precarious position right now, especially you folks in the EU with the TPD bullshit. I guess in my opinion, there are more important things to worry about than one guy selling out. It's true, that video is disgusting, but to me it's no more disgusting than any other ad for products that don't work, like overpriced make-up that's supposed to make you look younger, or diet ads that show ripped models and in fine print say "results not typical." It's just another scam, like all the others, and in my opinion, it's not something worth blowing up the Internet over. We should focus our efforts on fighting the TPD, not fighting some shitty YouTube reviewer. 

I see your point though, and it is problematic when someone so influential to the community stoops so low.

RE: Disgusted!!!
I suspect he either greatly underestimated the community's reaction, or was vastly unaware of how popular he truly was. Lesson learned, I'd say.
