    Warning to all Vendors ESPECIALLY NON_DOMESTIC VENDORS !

    Recently we have had unscrupulous Distributors of Vaping Gear abusing the PM system and soliciting members through it that they may recieve free gear in return for spruiking it or doing reviews on it.

    THIS IS A FLAGRANT ABUSE OF AVF !

    If reported your account WILL be terminated IMMEDIATELY .... AVF is a community for VAPERS , it is NOT a marketing resource for you to abuse the opportunity we give companies when we allow them to be our guests !

    IF you have an offer to make , make it publicly in the ONE thread that under the rules you are permitted to have for your company in Vendor General .

    Members if you receive these offers , please report them to the moderators ... while you might think " Oh Cool Free Shyte for me " All you are doing is perpetuating the abuse of our community by unscrupulous companies that cant even bother to read our rules , or respect our boundaries .

    AVF gives Companies the opportunity to interact ... DO SO in your threads and DO NOT abuse our generosity in welcoming you to our community , by utilising underhanded stealth marketing ... if you WANT someone to review your product ASK OPENLY and let members respond publicly so that we will ALL know it was provided for them by you and not purchased and reviewed solely for reward ( FREE SHYTE! )

    It's not just yocantech It's obvious who else does it and what members whore their thumbs out for free vape gear. Like Noe and gearbest at the moment.

    LOL Slight difference between an advertised contest and a PM urging you to say nice things about their free stuff so they can circumvent the rules by getting members to spam the forums for them

    That's in poor taste, I don't think you have any idea of the arrangement that member has made!

    I enjoy the reviews done by the members on this forum, whoever that may be.

    This thread is about spamming members by PM and should be stopped for what it is.

    So if it's orchestrated by the member it's fine then? Not in my books mate it's blatant spamming and circumnavigation of the rules using a member to advertise a vendors products. Doesn't matter who you are.
