[Shitpost Sunday Series] The History of ECR: The good, the bad and the ugly (week 5) [GIVEAWAY] https://ift.tt/2Md7zo6

Welcome back everyone to the thrilling conclusion of our two part Scandal entry! If you missed last week's amazingly aggravating thread, you can find it here. If you're unfamiliar or just new here, every Sunday* I dredge up old drama from this subreddit and I do my best to thread a narrative between the shitposts. I've delved into the deep and dark recesses to bring you all of the golden moments that have been forgotten, all for your entertainment.

*= I might take next week off.

Unfortunately, I feel like I have to put this section in before we kick off week 5. If you are easily offended or find you get your knickers in a twist easily, don't bother reading this. The only reason I keep writing these are for the people who enjoy reading them, so for as long as people keep reading, I'll keep writing. Don't like it? Get fucked and move on. And if it really needs to be said: I am not part of the vaping industry. I have no vape related business, I make no money from vaping or anything related to it. I am not competition and I don't shit on people to discredit their name to benefit my business. I do this because shit people did shit things and they're usually pretty fucking funny. If you have no sense of humour, do one. Thank you.

Right, with that said and fucking done let's crack open this chilled bottle of giveafuck and get messy on some shitposts. We are here for the scandals after all! I want to open this week's entry with a real real low point of the sub. And by low point I mean a moment in our timeline that still pisses me off and many others. This is about a cherished member of our community who isn't around very much but many of us still think about him and still wish him the best in life. But with that said, let's take a moment to remember:

SMOK Alien Mod Warning / PSA

Now the OP of this thread isn't the OP I'd like to talk about, they simply reposted it after the first thread was deleted. If you've been here a while, you know exactly the shitstorm the Alien was. When it was released it was the hottest newest shit and a tonne of units were sold, hailed as the best mod in the modern time. But this sub was filled with constant threads about how their Alien had broken after only a few months. Seriously, if you viewed the sub by 'new' you would have probably seen 4-5 Alien threads on the first page. It got tiring, to say the least. However a cherished member of the community and an employee of his local B&M store decided to just put up a PSA for everyone's safety. If your Alien's screen had stopped working but continued to fire, stop using it immediately due to the bloody fire hazard it posed. He was only doing what was right. I encourage you to read the entire thread, I really do, especially the downvoted to hell comment right at the bottom.

TL;DR, some knobhead decided to take the white knight route and doxx the original OP and take it further than it should have ever gone. Subsequently they lost their job at a crucial time in their life, he needed that wage coming in. So this story fills me with so much fucking rage. Now, OP has always been a very chill and friendly guy. When this all come to a head, he didn't fight, he didn't kick off and he didn't Shitpost about it. He accepted the fate he was given and tried making the best of the situation regardless of the injustice that was forced upon him:

It's been one hell of a ride, ECR

I just wanted to share some of the words in this thread which really resonate with me and are words to be remembered when you're on ECR. Just take a moment to reflect:

However, please be good to each other. There's shit posts and there's genuine newbies who need help. Yes, shit gets repetitive, but it's up to current vapers to inform and accept new vapers and soon-to-be vapers into the community. That's how all of you can help save lives.

Thank you to u/hellskitchenvaper for all the time you put into the community, you have not been forgotten. We all hope you're well and life is better now and if you do happen to read this, don't be a stranger. Oh and one last thing, fuck you u/fudgetrader

So let's move on from the lowest point to another moment in time to one of the latest vendor meltdowns we've had. They don't happen too often (But that has been the theme these past two weeks) but when they do, they are absolutely glorious. What do you get when a vendor says they've doxxed someone, fat shamed to high hell, threatened to rape a man and gone a drug fuelled rant on Facebook? This is what you get:

Vapor Chef, wtf?

Again I encourage you to look at all the screenshots linked. It's honestly a hard story to keep track of with all the shit flying around. From what I can tell, it seemed to have started off with an argument on Facebook about jeeps. Seems innocent enough until it spiralled into a threat to rape his wife, which isn't a threat to take lightly of course. However, doxxing someone and telling them you put all of this personal information on the darknet is not the way you deal with the situation.

It then gets a lot worse. From fat shaming someone's 'obese' wife to listing all of the guns he keeps in his house. Most of the screenshots are his ramblings all over Facebook, arguing back and forth with no one coming out smelling like roses. But if you're a business owner, this is not how you conduct yourself in public. I honestly can't tell if this was xanax or ambien fuelled, but there must have been something stoking the fire to keep it roaring. His Facebook was also filled with attempts to make himself look amazing, amongst the insults and threats, where he boasts about having X amount of millions and how he's able to buy his house and cars in cash. Just an overall douche flute.

Now it did spill onto the sub where a lot of the comments were quickly deleted. And to be honest, once the thread died down, nothing else really came of the meltdown. Oh, other than his reputation being burned to the ground. I guess the lesson to be learnt is, don't doxx anyone and don't spew out violent hateful shit on a public forum where all your customers can see it.

Moving on to the last entry for this week's scandal theme (there's a few more, but I'll just dot them in with more light hearted entries. This shit is seriously draining to read) and let's go back to the heydays where Diacetyl and Acetyl propionyl were very dirty and scary words to be thrown about. Everyone has their opinion on diacetyl, some of us love it because it's tasty and some of us avoid it, it's your personal choice. However, how can you make that personal choice when you're told by a company that none of their juice contains these nasties?

Mothers Milk is full of Diacetyl and acetyl propionyl according to report

That's right, even when Pip from Suicide Bunny publicly stated that their juice was DA/AP free, turns out it wasn't. Now I don't remember off the top of my head the 'safe' levels of exposure for diacetyl, but when you claim they're completely absent and it turns out there's 2.75 ppm and a whooping 393.68 ppm of Acetyl Propionyl then that makes you full of absolute shit.

Later on, however, they must have made the switch over to being DA/AP because funnily enough they all started tasting like shit compared to what they were. This brings us to this thread which I'm not going to write about since even though he says he has evidence, it's mostly anecdotal and I can't be arsed sifting between the truth and just some bullshit. But what I did find funny is the mention of Mother's milk Obsidian edition. Which if you're not aware was a stupid attempt at selling "6 month aged" juice with a special edition trip tip.

The claim makes sense. They lied about their juices not containing DA/AP to gain face with customers after the whole diacetyl scare, started to rework the recipes with CAP Vanilla custard V2 until the scare blew over. When it did, they stood staring at dust covered bottles of the original recipe and came up with the brilliant idea to sell it as if it had been "aged" on purpose as opposed to not being able to sell it at all. It just goes to show if you wrap something up as limited edition, throw in a 20p drip tip and sell it for $100 then people will buy it in droves. They must have thought they were geniuses at the time.

Either way and in the end, it's your choice whether you want a tasty ass vape with diacetyl or not. But when you're lied to, when you can't make an actual educated decision, that's when shit goes south. Thankfully suicide bunny aren't as prominent as they once were and probably for a good reason.

And so there we have it ladies and gentlemen, the conclusion to the two part scandal edition of the Shitpost Sunday Series. Now, you might have seen the giveaway tag and don't worry, I haven't forgotten! When I was writing about cloudmaker last week, I just had to dig it out and check that it still worked. That's where I got the brilliant idea to give it away, since I wasn't using it, one of you might like to have it. It is a piece of shitpost history after all. You can look upon it in all of its glorious massive fashion here and for anyone wondering, it's the old school YiHi SX350j board.

To enter: just tell me your BEST shittiest joke. That's it. The shittier the better. That's all you have to do to be in for the chance to win this doorstop. I will say, this is open internationally but I'm probably gonna ask for some shipping money. Maybe not all of it, just a contribution. It's in working order and I've got the box with the gubbins and the metal battery plate. The plexiglass door has a corner come loose, just so you know. If I don't recognise your username if you win I might ask for you to prove your age. Winners will be announced in week 6 and put in a randomiser or some shit.

Until next time guys and gals, stay shitty.

Ps. Shoutout to u/enyawreklaw and the crew for covering the past 4 weeks of my shitposts on inthemix. Look ma and pa, I'm internet famous!
