    I think I'll have to donate the man a bed sheet and a pair of scissors to cut eye holes in it as that has crossed the line for a ridiculous point made by an academic.

    Must be an underlying problem, missed meds maybe?

    He *could* be saying "this person is a winner because they got off tobacco"...

    ... but sadly, we know that isn't what he means.

    Way to totally prejudge someone he's never interacted with! Looks like we have a winner here! </sarcasm>. I've heard comments like his, in that tone, many times from overly privileged people in suits - and it's ALWAYS intended to convey a sense of superiority over someone they deem "inferior" for one inconsequential reason or another.

    And that right there, in a nutshell, is the problem with the tobacco-control movement. The people running the show have a complete and utter disdain for the people they are supposed to be helping. It's no wonder they're not making much headway - people don't like to be "helped" (and I use that term loosely - I actually mean "told what to do") by people that view them with disgust.

    Contrast to the comparatively amazing, practically totally word of mouth spread of ecigs - it's ex-smokers helping current smokers, and everyone is treated as human beings deserving of dignity and respect (even if we do have some ideological and technical differences of opinion at times ;) ). That's why I think the community itself rubs them the wrong way - we're "inferiors" that have the gall to do their jobs better than they can, while still showing each other, and the "filthy smoker scum" a shred of common human decency (or as they would say - "contributing to normalizing the behavior by not making smokers social pariahs").
