    hey now just because you enjoy slapping people with rulers does not make you a kindergarten teacher, I enjoy using rulers, crops, whips, my new chain flog leaves such pretty marks behind.

    Can't believe I never claimed my badge. Guess that's what happens when you use Tapatalk 99% of the time.

    I would like one please. I first began investigating e-cigarettes there not long after they opened. Then like everything eventually bureaucracy overtook the desire to share info. Loved the PIF there especially when someone was wary to try it. But it went downhill not very long after they opened. Glad there is the underground :) Stay true my friends, stay true

    So it was R1 that caused so much trouble? In case anyone is interested, he's disappeared from ECF, months ago.

    I joined here some time ago. But, I never posted much. I'm a little slow to get used to a new place and barely posted anywhere much anymore anyway.

    But, ECF is pretty much dead. I'm bored. So, I guess it's time to move on. I don't know if I'm a refugee exactly. I still intend to post over there sometimes. I have friends on a few threads there. Unless, of course, it turns out that they're already here!

    Hey Dancing, good to see you again!

    If ECF is dead, they have only themselves to blame for it -- most adults object to being treated like kindergartners!

    It's good to see you Dancing! Maybe we could get Kenna and the rest of the gang from Kawfee and Backporchers over here.

    I left for many reasons, one of them was the temporary ban received during a debate in the outside. The others... well, there were warnings, and then of course the level of toxicity was unbearable. It's definitely changed since I registered there 5 years ago. It's changed for the worse.

    It wasn't Retired1, it was some of there other admins. If I could pull the list I was looking at last night, I could tell you. ClassWife I think was one of them. There were 3 others that I went toe to toe with, but again, names, lost to me, as I don't care anymore. LOL!

    As for them blaming themselves, no, they won't blame themselves for their loss of subscribers. They'll blame something or somebody else for that. As is the current theme of things.

    "I did that? No I didn't you started it!"

    As quiet as it's gotten over there, I suspect that a lot of our friends are already here. It's just a matter of finding them.

    I almost left a few years ago. But, I've been there for over 8 years. I'm not fond of change. But, at this point there's just nothing left. Except for a few people that I'll stop by and visit now and then.

    Yeah Asswife was one of the many annoyances, but for me, Retarded1 was by far the worst -- though Asswife was a close runner-up! One of the female mods there, I fergit her name/screen-name, I heard had died, of some kind of cancer. She was only a minor annoyance, but I was surprised to hear of her death, because I think she was kind of young-ish. Really sucks to quit smoking, and then get taken out by some OTHER kind of cancer! :facepalm:

    I've run into Rolygate, under his own name, over at Quora. Dunno if he's still at ECF, since I haven't been there in over 3 yrs. Also ECF's owner, on Twitter. Can't say I care much for him, under any name, but Rolygate turns out to be quite a nice guy.

    Many of us know that place as "Asshole Central". Not the users, at least not MOST of them... but the admin COMPLETELY SUCKS. It's like they think they're behind the iron curtain, and MUST SUPPRESS EVERYTHING! Fascist kindergarten teachers. :facepalm:

    Yeah, I felt like I couldn’t be myself there. It is like Fascism, actually, and kindergarten.
    The mods were fairly low key when I was there, but the vibe is repressive. That Oliver person never shows his face, don’t even know if he still vapes.
    One person chewed me out last weekend for not being negative to a younger vaper (in college) who was vaping but had never smoked. It was fucked up. Plus the answers they give new members are just plain snotty sometimes, although some ppl are okay.
    I’ve no desire to return there ever, right now. Except maybe to browse the library, which has some neat stuff. ;)

    Thanks, Smokie. The link took me to your YT page. I’m not sure I can DL anything if I’m not on my computer, anyway. My husband is a Jersey boy. :)

    People get snotty around here frequently -- the difference is, the admin presumes we're all adults and can settle our affairs without needing their attention. And that's mostly true. If someone is hateful to you, just /ignore them -- click on their image at the side of their posts, and there is an option to ignore -- it works great! The only ones you can't ignore are the admins, but unlike those at ECF, they're mostly not assholes. Mostly. ;) ;) ;)

    It’s not the snottiness in general that bugs me there, I can handle it. My sisters are snotty and I learned to take it. I mean when some inexperienced person who just joined that day, comes and asks for advice on what rig to buy or whatever. The snotty part is recommending RDAs to someone who’s not sure how to change a stock coil or whatever. Can’t explain it. They would give advice but the underlying vibes were unfriendly. That’s what lead to some bad feeling and I didn’t feel like fighting with this person who would love to make things harder for me there. Complicated.

    I don’t think the VU people are harsh just to hurt someone just because they can. There are always a-holes like that, who get off on other ppl’s misery, anyway. Those folks, yes I’ll happily them.
    Sheesh, my tablet is going crazy from all the graphics here. I tried turning off java or whatever but it’s still not great. I gotta re-charge now, but I’ll talk to you later. Such a relief to talk to real people here. :)
