I sure hope so. He's been getting flak for quite a while now from people claiming that he's paid to do reviews, or that he "forces" companies to give him free stuff in exchange for good reviews, now I don't know if any of that is true but I've heard it a lot, and now with all this happening, I hope he realizes what scrutiny he's under and gets more careful about appearances. Whether I or anyone else here likes his videos or not, it's hard to deny that he has helped people in the past with his build and review videos, and he has become a YouTube celebrity such that everyone in the Vaping community recognizes his name even if they've never seen his videos, and so I really do hope he cleans up his act and learns his lesson from all this. I kind of doubt that he would underestimate his popularity as you suggest, since most YouTubers are very aware of how many hits their videos get, and if he's at all involved in the vaping community he's probably seen his name mentioned on various forums, reddit, etc. 

Anyway I think I'll take my leave of this thread, as I know my opinion is not the popular one and I don't want to be an instigator in all this. Thanks everyone for not throwing me under the bus with him Tongue

RE: Disgusted!!!
Oh my word... 

I just watched that video again, and wow I forgot how annoying he is in that. It just sounds so obviously scripted (who the hell calls them "acute headaches?" And seriously, dry knuckles?). And really, he comes off as so full of himself, especially toward the end of the video... Geez. 

Maybe the muscle cramps are from sitting on your ass all day? Maybe the dry knuckles are from the fact that it's winter and the air is cold and dry? Seriously Rip? 

To me the worst part isn't that he's promoting a product. Everyone does that. To me the worst part is that he's implying that all these things are side effects of vaping, when it's most likely just a result of sitting on his ass all day (his words, not mine) and then other factors like dry weather, maybe a nicotine headache, etc. 

Ugh. I take it all back. What a tool.

RE: Disgusted!!!
TBH is doesn't make me respect him any less (Mainly because I simply can't abide his persona).

I still can't bear to watch more than a few seconds of him.

Meanwhile, bear in mind Todd's excellent point. 

"This is my opinion, I'm just a guy in a shed." 

That furore is about Rip's opinion. Nothing more.

Is it helpful?
No.

But it is Rip's opinion - that's all. Others differ...

RE: Disgusted!!!
For reducing dehydration feel we can add 10 max 15 % destilled water to e-liquid.

In this sensitive times for vaping eveyone needs to be careful about what he does and what he says, so I feel. This applies even more for people who have tousands of followers.
