My particular favorite is the "my hearsay is truth, but if you contradict me, I won't believe you unless you show me your sources" guy.

My, that certainly went on and on and on, etc. I must say I'm found myself amazed at what some people think of their own supposedly profound knowledge. Damn Brian, you're the King of Cool. I don't think I could calmly rebut their ignorance with such eloquence.

I got exactly what I wanted. An email from the author (reprinted with permission):

 

Hey Brian,

 

I didn't write that Absinthe Post, it was a paid post from AbsintheSupply.net. They paid me $100 and 20% of the proceeds from any sales to publish this article.

 

I actually don't know much about Absinthe, I have tried it a few times in Europe and a brand or two at local U.S. bars, but that's is it. I have an entertainment blog where anyone can pay to have posts made. A few companies have contacted me and had me publish postings. I get around 40,000 visitors a month even though I do not update the site often.

 

Anyone can pay and have posts placed on this site or get ads. I believe in free speech. However, the AbsintheSupply.net people have contacted me and have asked me to remove certain comments, I don't like doing that, but they paid for this posting space. So I might have to trim or do some edits. I don't like that guy making comments about you and your wife, so if you want I can remove those too, but they are just ridiculous.

 

You seem like a cool guy. I just want to say that I didn't produce this content, it was produced by AbsintheSupply.net and I am not trying to start a battle between people who frequent my site and yours.

 

Thanks,

Natalie

 

I smell my next Real Absinthe Blog article. :)

I remember when I first discovered absinthe almost a year ago. Bought a bottle of Czech Absinth Strong and wished I could afford some KOSG. Thanks goodness I kept surfing the web, discovered WS and FV and got straightened out.

Brian, that's some tai-chi-style shit you're doing over there. Nice work!

 

AbsintheSupply.net. Say it ain't so!! :shock:

 

I never saw that coming.

 

Yeah, scary.

If even they can be compromised...

They've really gone downhill.

... :twitchsmile: Thank you Brian, and kudos man, you are like a zen master. Wow, you'd think Rainbowitz would get a clue, oh wait he's on absinthesupply.net's payroll! I must admit they're getting better at bullshitting and still good at avoiding the question while changing the focus.

The La Fee spoon in the pictures is cool looking though :devil:

What? They have a cool logo, what can I say?

Truly a yeoman's work, Brian...I don't know how you do it!

 

It's remarkable how vile some people can be when there is money at stake. I think that ultimately the best way to deal with them would be to get a legal definition in force that would exclude their faux absinthe products from the U.S. market. Some day, I hope....

A legal definition is irrelevant. These products don't enter the USA legally.

 

The only way such products could be excluded is if the US managed to police ALL absinthe/absinth shipments entering by couriers etc. The authorities would then exclude any real absinthe shipped in that way, since they probably don't differentiate between KOS and PF 1901.
