Having used for the AAEC forum for a week I am compelled to write a formal complaint regarding your blatant disregard for standard forum rules and etiquettes.
1) Lack of trolls.
As a long term forum user elsewhere this really strikes me as a glaring omission. This friendly and welcoming approach AAEC insists upon must be balanced immediately with a troll sticking his nose in and randomly flaming a passerby for little or preferably no reason. “Google it noob” is a world recognised standard.
2) Standard text speak replies.
Where are the de rigueur replies (especially when the replying poster has nothing to say) of “OMG WTH LOL”? This should be addressed forthwith. The continuing majority trend of people who actually choose to spell and punctuate correctly will only confuse users of non vaping forums who stumble upon AAEC.
3) Female forum users.
Everybody knows there are no women on the internet. You’re not fooling me.
4) Helpful moderators who actually moderate.
This goes against many forums I’ve witnessed in the past. Whilst I silently applaud this behaviour, I can only assume the Moderators Guidebook on Being Unhelpful and Snooty was delayed in the post or caught by your spam filter.
5) Helpful advice for those new to vaping.
This addresses my major concern as someone new to the vaping scene.
Having started on a look alike e-cig (I won’t name the brand - you’d only laugh) I took the plunge and followed the oft repeated advice to start with a Riva 1100 kit. It not only works, but it’s simple and straightforward to use. Perhaps I’ve been on the wrong forums, but this appears to go against the standard forum practise of simply naming the most expensive option.
I look forward to your prompt actions addressing my concerns.
Yours faithfully, Confused of Glasgow.
For anyone still reading, thank you. The helpful friendly and unbiased advice has been a Godsend. I love my Riva and can’t believe that, after 30 years of smoking, tobacco was so simple to wish a fond farewell.
