    Bobby Brown chastised for in-flight ecig use

    Seems Bobby Brown upset some folks when he used an ecig on a flight from Los Angeles to Orlando last Friday

    If Bobby Brown is on Your Next Flight, Maybe Let Him Know E-Cigs are Illegal || Jaunted

    The use of ecigs on flights aside (usage is banned on Delta), what struck me about the article was the incorrect terminology - such as "lighting up", "put it out" and "smoke" - to the uninitiated; it would seem an ecig is a device where flame is involved.

    ...as for "illegal", they got that wrong too.

    "We guess Nicotine will just have to do in the meantime,". I'm assuming they are referring to gum or patches.

    Such a short article, yet so so factually challenged.

    With so much ignorance still out there, at times discretion can be the better part of valour when vaping.

    Thanks. Unfortunately all the paragraph formatting was lost as I selected the wrong format when hitting the submit button - big paragraph blobs don't encourage reading.

    There was so much more to add. I really need to sit down and come up with a template that I can grab chunks of text from when responding to this sort of thing - too often I let articles like this go unchallenged due to time constraints.

    Collective "we" meaning the publication itself.
    They're trying to emulate copy that gossip columnists use.

    What a rubbishing waste of pixels. The ignorance and sickening smugness oozing off the writer just irritates me.
    I liked your comment. I wonder if they'll respond.
    Words are fun.

    Addiction is bad, let me explain it to you after I finish this coffee.

    Good response Icarus.

    It's a pity that most of the celebs seem to favour cigalikes over PV's.

    Would be way better if the damn things didn't look like smokes.
