Do you remember Steeljan? Vaping Trolls
After I did a radio interview at Vapersplace - Sobranies for Kev at vapersplace
And Triple Coils with Scott Bonner Cripes! Triple coils
My kind of science! - I don't need science - the cat tells me
Vaping was fun - lighthearted - even in the loo! Shriek!
But sometimes it was more serious.
Alienating vapers - We ARE smokers!
Alienating smokers - My world of vaping is not like my world of smoking - uh uh
Here are my blog stats six months in - Thank you Vapers
And I thought THAT was quite impressive. I'm obviously easy to please!
I've always done my own thing. I am not affiliated to anyone, and I have no reputation to defend. I have no career that's threatened. I'm free. I love it when lots of people read my posts and talk to me - and often they do. It makes me feel it's been a worthwhile three years.
I'm not trying to get noticed by important people.
I naively feel that people are good - and nice. I like people. Except when they run in packs, In vaping and smoking circles I am finding there are packs - people running with the hare and hunting with the hounds. Or snarling at each other. In-circles politics, reputation protecting. Or smokers against vapers or the other way around.
I don't like "Government" because of the packs. Packs bully, snap and threaten. They are empowered by the subservient mentality of their members. They self perpetuate. Tobacco Control is a pack. Public Health has become a pack.
We vapers and smokers have only one force implacably against us - prohibition by the dominant packs. I don't know what we can do about it - it's some kind of modern mental illness inherent in modern packs who are rewarded by their members with prestige, degrees and funding.
