Not at all @fidalgo_vapes It is NEVER the wrong time to take the HIGH road. I’m fairly sure that now, after I’ve read more of the responses, V-G## did not target ELR. I think their Big Yellow Team didn’t do it either (intentionally) but left everything up to their scraping results, i.e. V-G## Clone(s). No one bothered to LOOK, RESEARCH, or DECIDE whether or not the ELR results were VALID, RELATED, or WORTHY. The scans were done, data was tabulated, and the wheels started rolling. Automation isn’t always great IMO. V-G## is, and will take a big hit for this. ALL PR is NOT good PR.
I cannot speak to the numbers of DIY’ers who purchase V-G## juice or equipment, as I never have, and have only heard their name in passing, and not much to do about their name or products. DIY’ers are much like gamers (hehe, I know this for a fact), as they can have a very LONG memory, and are VERY connected online, and can become VERY motivated when required, hehe.
I wish Big Yellow, and V-G## all the best, or whatever they can scrape back together.
IMO, the big takeaway from this is the connection of the DIY community, that is easy to forget.
