Default Re: OPD & Smiley fall out

I think that the whole episode demonstrated the unbridled greed of OPD and Smiley was predicated upon the greater fool approach to marketing. It also showed that such programs don't work too well in this market. I view this as a very positive outcome as shows that shisha consumers aren't mere rubes to be exploited by hype and high prices combined with lousy marketing.
