Nu-Vapor Co-Op Implosion
« on: November 17, 2012, 04:12:33 PM »
So, I was using the Nu-Vapor forum to get some good prices on stuff through co-ops.  They just had a huge moderator melt-down over there that blew out the main person doing the co-ops.  I was kind of shocked.  Bums me out because it was a good source for cheap stuff.  Here's a thread;

Craig,

I just happened to be messing around on FB and while I have no idea about these people or their disagreements, I did end up on "The Land of Vape's" Coop which apparently this Hair Ball is involved with.  Here is the link, I hope it helps.

Yes, I guess the person will be still running them through FB, but I have no idea the name of the group, that doesn't look like it.

Sorry if I sent you to the wrong spot.  Dan may know, he seems to be the Vape Info Guru.

Hairball runs the coops through facebook in several groups that I have got involved with....it is her that will be taking care of the international post for a couple of mods that I have taken a rather keen interest in.
I have nonidea what happened...neither do I care so long as I can keep getting in on good coops with very trustworthy peeps  ;D

I can understand it, big forums with a lot of moderators are bound to have issues, but it's really sad to see that kind of thing happen in a generally peaceful, pleasant forum.

Yeah it's just something that happens with forums.... bigger they get the more drama that follows at times. There's always one in every crowd as the saying goes. In a big crowd however it's like throwing gas on a fire when it happens and the nonsense escalates.

After what I read in regards to the Nu-Vapor thread I have to say I'm a little put off on the idea of bringing co-ops here.... the part about ratting people out to paypal and screwing everyone over can happen to anyone running a co-op by a rival co-op.


Allaboutecigs has a vendor trying to sue them for banning them and slander over PM vendor spamming. The crap just never stops.

Some people just never learn  :(

I can totally see your point Darth, that's sort of a Pandora's box, isn't it.

There was a similar but worse blow up over on a hookah forum i used to frequent. a vendor supposedly was messaging members to tell them about being able to get them better deals than others were offering and trying to get them to buy from him... supposedly contacting a member with out them contacting you as a vendor first was a no no. But it turned into a huge blow up resulting in him being banded (after actually changing his business name so his business could be talked about on the forum because the name contained 'chronic' in it and that was considered a word for pot). From what i saw in that situation was that the guy was not actually a bad guy, he was just clienteling in a way that was 'bad' according to the main mod. It turned into a long drawn out thread, banning of the vendor, and a sizable exodus of members. people get way to bitchy on the internet.

They certainly do, seems to bring out the worst in people.  People will say things online they'd never say to someone's face.
