Re: Forum Announcement: Regarding **********
Being a n00b to the hookah scene, I am not too sure how to react. It does seem however, that the HP forums are run in quite a peculiar way as far as advertising/vendor relationships go. How can it be a member focused community when users are not allowed to mention certain vendors who they feel are the most capable of providing a good product/service? Never been on a forum that does that. A vendor's/advertiser's reputation will be determined by how well they serve their customers. No need for making vendors "unmentionable" if you will. Phrase editing is a great idea. vB is a great front end, and is the software allows it, that would be a solution IMHO, and would go a long way towards helping people not feel as if they are walking on eggshells just for posting their opinion.
Having said that, your house, your rules. I plan on continuing to support John as long as my needs as a consumer are met. Just sucks to have other people potentially miss out on a great vendor.
