Not one part of this post is talking about avoiding customs I'm talking about not being happy about my items being stopped?? And the irony of it happening to a small order Surely that's not against the rules.

You do realize that saying you got "busted" or "caught" is very directly talking about avoiding customs. That's without statements like buying tobacco for the "underground price".

If you are trying to convince me that this thread and the posts held within aren't about avoiding customs then you either think I'm an idiot or are yourself completely oblivious to your own actions.

It is unfortunate that hookahpro has this stance. In the US shisha tobacco is completely legal and since hp is American, you should not restrict people who unfortunately live in countries which has oppressive laws. In some European countries shisha tobacco is actually illegal.

Though I do agree that such discussion does not belong in the general forum. The thread should be moved somewhere else.

HookahPro may be viewed as an American site, but the hobby and lifestyle of a hookah smoker is something that people from around the world partake in. With that being said if we were to promote ways to, or talk about, breaking the law, be it an American law or a law in another country, that would put our home away from home that is HookahPro in a negative light.

Everything we talk about here, every action, every post, every chat, is visible to not only us, but the rest of the world. With that said we must do everything we can to keep our site and our hobby looking good.
