Yeah I've been there before .. and let me tell you I was pissed off! I got some of the crappiest tobacco I have ever smelt! I would never want someone to watch a review of mine and run out and buy something .. then be like wtf is this a joke!?? Like I said .. it is why I got into this .. to share knowledge and opinions that aren't powered by the almighty dollar or joe schmo the shisha tobacco manufacturer or vendor.

Yeah it sucks when people are "compensated" or "encouraged" to do reviews! Very misleading. But thankfully you can always check Hookah Pro for reviews, or even ask about it in chat and get a ton of responses! You can tell the difference between fanboys and sincere here.

A couple years ago I started doing vendor reviews anonymously. But then some people started doing vendor reviews in exchange for a couple extra samples or a free upgrade. So they would say "yeah it is great shipping, blahblahblah!" It was so shady and so tainted from what I was trying to do, that I stopped doing vendor reviews. Because they became pointless after being abused by people only concerned with themselves and what they could get out of the deal. Uggg it makes me cringe to think how diabolicaly shady people can be.
