Well I think that getting rid of the glass pipes is a big improvement and that was my largest concern about the site. The shisha page still has only American made shisha claim but that legal trouble is for someone else to worry about. I don't think that the psychedelic imagery is something that ought to be one a narghile related website but it doesn't make me angry like the glass pipes did.
The prices are still insane but they don't bother me much as I can't imagine too many people paying them. I suppose that the occasional yuppie might buy his 40USD charcoal and 90USD QT on a whim when they walk into a shop but that is about the extent of it. The shisha will simply not sell at that price very often so I see the whole thing going belly up in less then a year. Man, I sure wonder what happend to the old Smiley.
