    Question What happened to Vibert's reviews and recent posts?

    I was reading some reviews in the directory and noticed Vibert's reviews have turned into a line of dashes, so are his recent posts. What happened?

    Either his account has been hacked or he suddenly got real paranoid.

    I just copied and saved the text of the reviews of his that haven't been edited to dashes, in case he is in fact hacked and doesn't have backup copies of the text anywhere.

    I suspect it might be due to the plagiarism issues he posted about on Basenotes, but only Vibert can accurately answer your question.
    "Are you a god?"
    "No"
    "Are you a wizard?"
    "No"
    "Are you a man?"
    "No"
    "Then what are you?"
    "I am awake.."

    Weird. If it were just the reviews, I'd suspect it was some kind of updating over the holiday weekend, but the posts, too?

    I'm sure there are system backups, but still, WTF?

    Is Vibert under Witness Protection Programme or something? Hmmm...maybe he's compiling them into a book!

    Pretty much all his reviews are gone now.... kind of creepy. I really appreciated his reviews and posts on BN! Hopefully he'll chime in and explain what's going on.

    That's so odd... I hope Fragrantica didn't sign him to a multi year contract...

    I, too, hope this gets cleared up. I find Vibert's contributions--especially his reviews--to be truly invaluable.

    Keeping my fingers crossed....

    Calm down people, its the Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend here and he's probably spending time with his real family instead of the scent-obsessed one .. give the guy a break ..

    I'll just mention that I've been submitting fairly long reviews for quite a while now, and none of them have yet to appear. This is my main complaint with BN, because over at MUA, the review is posted immediately. I would hate to see a rival site siphon away a lot of BNers because of this, which I have yet to see an good explanation for.

    I truly, truly hope Vibert is not voluntarily removing his reviews. He and his reviews are an asset to Basenotes.

    Reviews remain your intellectual property. By adding your review you grant BN the license to use it. Here's a post by Grant on this topic:

    This is really disappointing.

    He now has two reviews left.

    Hope we can get to the bottom of this.

    I'm glad many others are also concerned with this issue. I hope we can hear from Vibert on it.

    Is this a sad day for basenotes? Something tells me it might be. Of course if Vibert is removing these so they can be published in a book then wonderful and congratulations are in order, but it just seems a little odd . . . the last couple of dozen thread posts edited out as well?

    My instinct would tell me that his account has been hacked. I could be wrong, but blanking out 700+ reviews and 20+ posts would take a loooooooooooooooooooooooooong time to do manually.

    If everything related to you disappear from a site/forum one day it is obvious that you have done something fishy.
    Of course everything is possible and that could be one of many cases.
    Reading this thread one can get the impression that he was plagiarizing himself on the other site.
    I do have faith though that something else is going on.
