Re: Don't you hate it...
In all honesty, I've never smoked from a true MYA, I have a modern Chinese Knock off that smokes well, but as to the quailty of a true MYA - I couldn't say. I will state that the recent trend of mishaps with their products has me slightly worried about a furture purchase, but if the price was right I wouldn't be against them as a whole.
And yes, unless you have tried it, you shouldn't say against or for it.
Sorta like when your parents tried to get you to eat something new - you say you hate it, they replied with, "Well how can you hate it if you never tried it?"
