I had meant to restore it but procrastination kicked in until Longrider pointed out this article at CiF. In a very well-articulated piece (recommended read), he proffered a few examples of anti-smoking obsession, but they are a trifle mild for our purposes.
From the same comments section, though, come these little beauties.
I like watching recent American TV police shows where the guy who smokes gets shot. That'll teach him.These have been duly added, along with this selection of mouth-frothing hysterics e-mailed by a fellow jewel robbing lady from Perth, Australia.

Smokers are generally selfish, childish bastards

Not only should smokers be forced to clock in and out, they should be forced to have a shower and clean their teeth so other people don't have to put up with the stench.

Have you seen them, they drop thir cigarette stubs and walk on like baboons discarding banana skins. Provide vats of slime for them to stand in when they smoke then just dismiss them for time wasting

Crusty leather-skinned tar-ridden ash-tray mouthed, dogs-bottom-mouth, chimney-faced horrors the lot of them.

if you want to smoke, live on an island by yourself and spare the rest of us from your filthy habit.Lastly, Captain Ranty carries two quite astounding examples of anti-smoking hypocrisy which are also now catalogued there for posterity. Steel your stomach for the first one, especially.

It's about time the govt started to get serious about getting rid of smokers.

Smokers look at your disgusting skin and lines on your face. If that is not enough to make you give up, smell yourself

enjoy your emphysema clowns, and keep your smoke to your own festering, brown walled, putrid holes. Suck it in suckers...and have a nice day y'all!

The database of deranged, inhuman fuckwittery from these people is growing nicely, so remember to keep 'em peeled when reading comments sections. If you see anything particularly hideous and hate-infused, simply click on the bright red fury-filled face to the right to take you to the ever-lengthening list, and place your 'find' there with a link to your source. The nuttier and more mentally unbalanced, the better.
Isn't it nice to know that such abominable people are increasingly fêted and pandered to by your government, eh?
ADDENDUM: Forgot to mention that the comments for older posts are moderated (merely so I don't miss them, they are always published) so don't worry if there is a delay.
