Yes, because posting a hot button issue is annoying. You have a choice whether or not to read, I don't have a choice whether or not to breathe.
I figured this might get the temperature up a little. I honestly do wonder why people defend the act so passionately, though I am not at all surprised. Public drinking is banned (and note that I am differentiating that from public intoxication) and yet not many people question that.
Also, to another poster... I don't think I'd find sucking a tailpipe any more pleasant, thank you.
Don't mind the smokers, they are way too defensive and it's not their fault. As being addicted to any drug, will make most people at least a little grumpy. Holding my breath or running in front of someone hacking a butt in front of me is the norm. I suppose it's a minor inconvenience to us non-smokers, in comparison to putting addicts through withdrawal.
If people like you and I can be smart enough to not smoke in the first place. We can be smart enough to deal with it in public. Just a matter of holding your breath and maybe skipping ahead of someone puffing chemicals behind them. Another trick is to get some nice cologne under your shirt and just pull your shirt up to your nose.
