    A potentially unpopular opinion

    As I wade through the murky waters of ignorance that are the Facebook vaping communities, I often despair at the lack of intellect of the influx of new vapers and their seeming inability to do their own research. I may sound like a snob here, but I am used to the highbrow nature of the community here and the sheer collective knowledge, ingenuity and insight that AVF garners among its diverse population.

    The propensity to use Facebook groups as Google, replete with incomplete, inaccurate or downright incorrect answers, leads me to the conclusion that the powers that be are barking up utterly the wrong tree when it comes to regulation. While there is the potential for nicotine poisoning, this is only increased while upholding the status quo, as people important higher concentrations of nicotine through the desire for monetary saving and to stockpile. A simple regulation regime would solve this.

    The point I am getting to, is that some of the horror shows I've seen with people mistreating hardware and in particular batteries makes me think that the potential for a spate of injuries and even deaths is more likely, as the less educated start experimenting without the understanding of safety. This is the issue that should be addressed by regulators - saving the idiots and their faces from themselves.

    I get your point abotu FB skewing vaping and offering very little in the way of info/safety/research possibilities

    Id hate to think of what i might be vaping in the way of mods/tanks and juice if i hadnt ended up here first, where i did months of research and asked questions.

    And still learning here...

    Every sentence here is complete, I feel. However I will paragraph the last section at your behest.

    My understanding was that Oxford commas were a convention where they must be used in pairs. Thanks for the clarification.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately) I got booted from one such group with a 'man' claiming he knew what was safe for a mech and so he sold 0.08ohm coils for their mechs. I merely brought up battery safety to which I got abused in a pm from the guy who knrw what safe was and 'did I include battery sag?'

    Ugh... And this guy sells these coils commercially.

    I talk up AVF in FB vape groups. Most people don't know about it, and I'm talking about the aussie members. Most people don't know about ECF as well.
