    Blocked from Simon Chapman

    This is what I tweeted on his twit page regarding the recent SBS article

    "Sorry to be so pathetic as to give up smoking via vaping. Would I be less pathetic if I kept smoking, Sir?"

    He is so fragile, the poor little flower, to not want me responding to his tweets any more. I am now blocked from doing so.

    I wonder why?

    BTW, I don't think negative press for Simon Chapman needs to be edited IMO. I am happy to edit though if people think I should. The more google hits for posts exposing his true hateful nature the better IMO. Let the world see what he is.

    OK - I am not saying that ANYONE is but lets be careful as a community.

    We don't want the next vaping headline in Australia to be "Attack of the Vapers - Online Bully tactics of the e-cigarette community"

    We need more people on OUR side - not theirs!

    Do we as a community REALLY need to start a vendetta against one guy?

    I am sure the public is educated enough to make up their own mind.

    We should be CELEBRATING that the national media broadcasted a story on vaping and not focus on one guys opinion.

    slagging off at someone is not going to help our cause in the slightest. reasoned arguments backed up with facts and statistics will go a lot further against the hysterical rants of anyone, parties mentioned above included. it most likely won't change his mind one little bit, but will give others pause when the see his peevish outbursts met with maturity and logic.

    Since my comments got deleted from the sbs thread.

    I'd like to give a big middle finger to chapman.

    And if he can give smokers and vapers all the bad press he likes then I think it's fair I vent my frustrations publicly. so f u d head

    I am absolutely celebrating the SBS show. In fact, I think the editing was deliberately done to include Simon calling us "pathetic", as an own goal for him, and which shows him up. I disagree with calling for him to be "shot" or anything nasty. But I do think there is a place for witty rebuttals to S Chapman and attacking his arguments, not the man. I think it is important for people to realise that he calls people who quit smoking using non approved methods as "pathetic", and that he is not the be all and end all of the effort to help people quit smoking. Unfortunately, his opinion is just about Number 1 for Australian government bodies, the AMA etc when they want to know the expert opinion on tobacco issues. By showing him up, we can hopefully erode his credibility. It would be even better if we could convince him of the benefits of vaping, but that seems unlikely.
