Absenta.com just emailed me today to let me know about some absinthe picture contest they are sponsoring at their website. What's up with that?

Maybe someone should take the initiative to find out?

Absenta.com was where I got my very first absinthe. It arrived very quickly, and I was thrilled with my purchase. It is a little sad for me if they have truly gone out of business, although I would have never ordered anything from them again, since soon after that I discovered spiritscorner had a greater variety and much cheaper prices- at the time absenta.com only had Mari Mayans. Of course this was before I discovered this forum.

absenta.com has had a long illustrious history, I wouldn't call it rancid. I don't know what their current troubles are, I haven't heard anything. But they've been shipping faithfully for years up until recently.

I wish we knew what was going on with them ...

I heard absenta.com is ransid...so I never go there. I use spiritscorner.com.

But, they obviously aren't. And the plug I was refering to was on the business, not just the forum.

Fuck that action- if your customers come on to your forum and bitch, pulling the plug means you should have 'pussy' tattooed on your forehead.

Fix it. Whatever the bitch is about, make it right, and suddenly your forum is your friend again.

Absolutely not a problem.

Sorry to hear you may have gotten the shaft from those bums.

AllyCams,
I believe Peter was refering to absenta.com's own forum. And if customer's are bitching on the purveyor's own site about them, the plug needs to, indeed, be pulled.

As far as for here, have no fear. Say what you want.

It's chilly and cloudy in Atown.

a forum can and should be a source of useful information along with entertainment.if you read my comment you will find no complaint about the company,i am simply asking for additional info.perhaps you would like to talk about the weather?

when a commercial forum becomes a platform for
complaints against the company, it's time to shut it down...

Having monitored that forum for awhile now, apparently (and unfortunately) your experience is not atypical.

Next time, try: Spirits Corner

I am curious if anyone has info on that site.I ordered a bottle of mari mayans on march 3rd and still nothing.what really bothers me is that they havent responded to my emails.i went to their forum last week and noticed similar complaints,i left a comment stating my situation and now i have noticed the forum is disabled.not a good way to do business,dont you think?i guess i should call my creditcard company to have charges reversed.
