Default Sorry to announce but it had to be done.

This afternoon it has been decided that the devils playground/ WO********* (Neal and Holly) are to be banned permanently from this site.

They broke many rules and ultimately were not people we want around on this site.

Here are a list of things they did so nobody thinks we banned them unjustly. We "sat down" and took the time to compile a list. He was originally going to get a 10 day ban, before he decided to slander another business.

1. Neals Icon was drug related. It was a gas mask and his email had the domain of ***.

2. There was nudity that he hotlinked to our site. I actually got into trouble at work for clicking on his site. THIS IS WHY NUDITY AND PORNOGRAPHY ARE BANNED and you get an INSTANT perma ban for this

3. He was warned repeatedly about the self promotion and then continued to do so.

4. We recieved multipule complaints from members, and vendors alike stating he was negative and was bashing the moderators, the members of this forum and other vendors.

5. He threatend several vendors and their business. By this I mean he threatened to buy up their domain names or similar one "out of spite".... He actually told me this!!! How dumb can you be?!

6. His business ethics are very shady. He butted in on other peoples purchases, he bashed other vendors out right, he pushed his wares where ever he could, He even stated tht he was sending someone to another persons stores to take pictures to make a fake website of that particular vendor.

The final straw was him actually making a website out of a vendors name, and then putting falsafied information on it about the owners. I'm sorry but this is not the type of person we want on this site.

His attitude about this forum sucked. He kept saying it blew, So all in all, we are giving them the chance to make their own, and I wish them good luck.

The only reason I made this post was because I know a few people had purchases with this vendor and I felt those people were justified in the need of knowing why they aren't around.

EDITED FOR THE QOUTE BEING MESSED UP
sTILL MESSED UP, SORRY




Nofrendo- I seem to recall that the 2girls1cup was in chat. Not actually on the board.
He wasn't insta banned....., he had MULTIPULE warnings and he didnt heed them, on top of spreading lies about a certian vendor being a pedophile and raping 6 years........ He had well over 24 hours to take down the nudity, which he didn't. I had to remove the link for him after i clicked it AT WORK, and then got into trouble for it!!!! and guess what days later it's still there....

Come on nofrendo- cut me some slack, i'm trying here.

that's why I wanted people to know. I know several people still had transactions with them. I don't care if they do, and i'm not going to delete any of their stuff, they can still get reviews and what not

It was just a spiraling snow ball that needed to be melted for the sake of the community as a whole
(I AM NOT A SNOWBALL LOL! It originally said I was just lol!!!)

Yup, had to be done. Good job mod team on repeatedly giving warnings and allowing the person to correct their ways. The slanderous website was way over the top, I see a lawsuit in that mans future. Anyhow, good job team...................Now back to smoking!!!!!

The MODs of the Hookah Pro "Community", posted back and forth about Neal over the last week. We looked at it from every angle to make sure the decision that we made would be the right one. As KoRnKitten said, we initially were going to give him a 10 day ban, but the final straw was the website with very derogatory and falsified information about another vendor.

As you can see, the list is up, and there were many reasons, and there were many warnings! I am sorry to see a member go .. but we have a community to run here and it was in the best interest of the community.

Its a drug reference JD. Apparently the 20th of April at 4:20pm everyone lights up so to speak. So *** is kind of a code for the tokers of the world.

I hope everyone vendors and members alike take this as a lesson learned for themselves.

This is a situation despite multiple warns from a number of people - "He" had brought onto himself. There is no one to blame but him for the actions taken against him.

Hookah Pro was created for Hookah Enthusiasts; its a safe haven for those who truly love Hookah and the culture and subculture involved not for vendors to get a free ride and run a muck on the members of its community.

Vendors involved with our community (as Buddy provides for us) are quickly becoming more of a CON then a PRO. Whats going on is going to have to come to a stop.

I think the Vendors should be grateful to the Admin and Mods of this forum for keeping you all on here. If it were up to me, I would ban every last one of you. With or without vendors on this forum there would be no shortage of product WHAT SO EVER!
So, I say mind your Ps and Qs or cop a damn walk.

If youre doing more harm them good who the hell really needs you?

Martello- Not all vendors are bad, and I don't think they should be lumped together as such. I think that each vendor is different and deserves a chance to prove that they should be allowed to be here.

If they follow the rules then fine we both benifit from their presence. If they can not follow the rules, they will be banned, the people of the forum will know why and from that they will chose wither or not to keep giving that business their money.

I'm sorry you feel that way martello

I'm glad to know that the moderators are not only doing their job, but their doing it in a fair way... To be honest, I was kind of getting sick of all the self promotion he/she was doing. At first it didn't bother me so much, but after every single post reply became an advertisement, I began to get annoyed...Anyway, I'm thankful for having the mods that we do, you all seem to have good working ethics...
