    Hey Guys sorry for only replying now! I was on the run around with work till last night! Instead of making this whole thing into a fight what I want to do instead is to publish an article in next weeks paper. My plan is not to get a fight started but merely to create more awareness regarding the topic. I will be emailing some of the Vendors with some questions and taking it from there. I would rather use the opportunity to create a better awareness from Vapers than allow the public to be mislead by someone who has no idea what he is on about.

    I am not at all trying to be disrespectful to anyone who has commented here because if I had acted yesterday things would have gotten messy. So now that I have cooled down I will try turn this one around. My face was already published and a small little apology in the paper is not going to change that. Now that they have opened the door by publishing an ecig article they cant deny us a spot. Even if I have to pay for the article myself.

    I am grateful to @baksteen8168 for his letter and I would like to hear the outcomes of this email. But from my side if I had acted yesterday as I said I would have added many many more words in that and not the good kind. I think the fact that a door has been opened is a good opportunity for us!

    My email was not to pick a fight with them, but more to show them that they need to do more research before printing. Good luck with taking it further @Darth_Vaper69

    Thanks Guys. I will keep you updated.

    @rvdwesth - I might be able to chirp with the best of them, but I also firmly stand up for what I believe in.
