I think that you are 100% wrong and out of order for saying that he is taking advantage of anyone.
His contribution to the vaping community and their safety is immense, he did it for years without Patreon or any form of payment.
Patreon is voluntary, people donate, yes I said donate, if they choose to. Most vape reviewers on YT have Patreon accounts now, some earn a lot of money from Patreon. I don’t donate to any of them, but I do donate to Mooch and have since he opened his Patreon.
If you don’t want to donate, then don’t!
But to say he is taking advantage of people for his retirement plan is way out of order IMO, not to mention that it’s absolutely none of your business how much he earns from Patreon or anywhere else.
Mooch is one of nicest, most honest, and genuine people that this community is blessed with. He answers questions from 100’s of vapers every day, I know that’s true as he answered me on his FB page a couple of times the same day I asked him a question.
If you want to be part of the “vape police”, you can find so many other people who deserve criticism, Mooch does not deserve it!
