Question how do we know who not to talk about???

Ok so i've been coming here for a while now and i keep hearing about places we are not supposed to talk about well as a kinda newbie how are we supposed to know who not to talk about. Is there a list of do not mentions somewhere that i've missed? Is it some kind of mysterious mine field? Whats up??

Non-tobacco smoking products and the practices, places and accessories associated with them are not to be spoken of.

There are also certain vendors that we do not mention. If you do mention them the post will be edited and you will be told the situation.

If you want specific info or are unsure about a subject contact a mod about it. They have the final say.

Thanks it was the whole vender thing that had me confused. Are there bad venders out there? And how do we know not to shop there? Sorry for not knowing more.

There are several vendors that are banned from our forum. It doesn't mean they are bad vendors. It simply means at some point they broke the rules and were banned as any member would be. As kalutika stated, if they are mentioned, a friendly ''heads up'' will be sent out and the post will be edited. Disciplinary action would only be taken if the mentioning continues in a flagrant manner. As to who they are, here's a hint- you won't find them in the vendor section. Any questions and of course we're happy to help.

The posts here will help clarify some:
http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=9

But I have to agree, it might be nice for the mods keep a list in there about who's taboo. Since signing up a couple months ago I've felt a bit like it's a mine field too. The reason they were banned doesn't need to be stated, just that we don't discuss them here. I think it might be especially helpful for people who've done their shopping and searching before joining HP and so they might not realize that the vendor they've been dealing with isn't discussed here.

Or maybe a statement somewhere that says we only discuss vendors that ARE on a such a list.

I dunno, just a thought.

i agree. if there is a public announcement of the reasons for members getting banned (even those who have been permanently banned) there should be a heads up list of the taboo vendors. if nothing else it would be yet another way for us all to stay well informed so we dont end up dealing with a bad/shady vendor.

Its not necessary as Abu said if its mentioned u will be given a
private message and your post will be edited. Everyone is given a fair chance here, its only if you blatantly disregard the rules etc that your banned.
