I totally agree.

If anything similar happened on the forum I mod on we would take the same action. We had one instance where we actually used his IP address to report him to his ISP for service abuse, contacted his employer (he worked for a FD) and the victim who had about $2,000 worth of car parts technically stolen was going to get the police involved when the guy finally broke down and sent the money. The power of community is nothing to scoff at.

I am sorry to keep adding to this post but, it just pisses me off to no end. SSC, is the BOMB. I really am so pissed off that if I wrote what I thought of those " leeching " their generosity I would be banned...*LOL*

(Sharpening broadsword) It's going to be sad to see people lose their heads, but if you agree to do something, you do it. SSC did their part, now you do yours. I understand life gets in the way sometimes, but taking advantage of a generous offer is just wrong.

I ran out of things to review lol. I can happily say that I have completely exhausted my spring of free tobacco.

If I can do all the reviews I have then others should be able to hold up the most basic of promises. I have no sympathy for those who get themselves banned for this reason.

I'm glad this isn't directed at people. I was so psyched to get my last box, but I just managed to get the last review done last night. Oh, if only I had an extra two or three days to do another box's worth! Eh... Oh well... *goes digging through her cardboard box with 2 kilos of 50g tubs*

As was stated there will be a grace period so those that actually intend to do the reviews will be able to and also defend themselves. It's the people that had no intention of giving back in any way that will get permabanned.

There is definitely a grace period Jay and faeriekitsune .. this is really only pertinent to those that got samples and have done NOTHING!

You both produce some great videos! I enjoy watching!

I believe I have done a text review on them. The one with the camera backed out on my so I have to try to find another way to do the videos. Basically she said so the reward for doing the videos is you get more of this no thanks. SO I guess you know her take on it. Basically I will see about cranking one or two out but don't really want any more samples though I was really excited about getting up to the vortex but I don't guess I will. Also I won't be smoking in my video more than likely cause I can't smoke anywhere that I can set up a camera. Wow gotta love logistics.

Fezzik, I can't set up a camera where I smoke either as I'm not allowed to smoke indoors. The way I've found is to use my webcam and put my laptop in my lap to record. Or I borrow a digital camera from someone else, and upload it as soon as I'm done. Hope it all works out for ya!

Watch my reviews. I almost never record the video during the session. I want to review the entire session not just the beginning and middle so I record the smoke and then take the time to sit down and think about everything I experienced before actually making the review.

I normally wait until after the second set of coals is burning really nice, especially if it's a flavor I've had before. If I haven't, I normally wait until right before it dies when it still has the thick smoke, but it's getting ready to keel over.

[FONT=Verdana]Though I am at work I thought I chime in too. Well I did my 5 boxes from SSC and allot of the stuff on my shelf; even got like 7 more to edit from my stash should be up latter tonight. I like to do at least 1 if not more then one session before I do a review, however there are times when the alpha session is so how do we say unbearable that it requires filming then, I thinking BL DA. I think this is the best way to give a flavor a full shack down, was I lazy and not managing my heat right, did I pack it no quite right, etc. these can not be found in quick set up and film. As for the long run video's it a hard call between getting the info out and just dead space. I even have seen some that were way to short, and that is even worse then to long. Hopeful I at least have stayed out the boring category though. Anyways "thanks" to all those that are on the right path, to the rest of you "come on really"[/FONT]

Well put! .. It is a shame that those that put their hand out for these free samples are not honoring their word. *shakes head in disbelief that we are even having this issue here*

We will tweak future contests to not be so giving. You can thank those people that didn't hold up their end of the bargain on this! Thank them now, because they most likely will not be around in a few weeks. *sad to say and do*

How will they be tweaked? Like delaying the process time, requiring real names or anything like that?

I thought it was awesome that Sahara Smoke sponsored this. When I was trying to find a hookah forum to join, I saw this contest. I thought it was such a cool thing that I joined here. I figured "if vendors like this place enough to sponsor something like this, the people must be pretty fricking cool!"

It makes me sad that people took advantage...

Your videos are definately not boring Siagcore.

It's too bad people do take advantage of a company that is being generous enouph to give things away. Hopefully any future contests won't have troubles like this.
