Ok, now wait a second now, please tell me what is wrong with having a sing on the door, to tell people who do not want to be around smoke (who have that right), that smoking is going on, so that they can not enter that establishment?
Right? They spot that, and say "No, I'm not going in their!", and turn around and get back into they're vehicle, and goto another place that does not allow smoking. Right?
Is this not absolutely fair for everyone? And I mean everyone!!! Is it not?
And btw, when you say "non-smokers", that is technically incorrect, on the grounds that what someone DOES or not (smoking, in this case) is indifferent to how they feel about it being done bi someone else.
Their are people who smoke, who don't wanna be around people who are smoking, they never smoke in they're house or car, nor go to places where it's aloud.
And also people who don't smoke, however they aren't really concerned about ETS, don't mind the smell, and could care less what the person next to them is doing (within reason, of course, lol, talking about smoking...) Some actually keep ashtrays in they're house for smoking friends!
So sorry about the nitpicking, however I must point out about that being extremely incorrect. "NON" means "does not [do]", however what the individual in reverence, does or does not do, is not jermaine too how that individual feels about what someone else does or does not do. As reverenced by the examples above.
The proper word would probably be "anti-smoker", although I was thinking, recently, about a conversation I had, I'm pretty sure it was on this site (like back then... it might even be on this thread for all I know...)
Basically, their was a user who, it's like he/she ("he" I think) didn't smoke, and totally didn't like to be around it, but was very, very into like the "freedom" thing, and completely opposed the bans. And he took exception too that term, probably because of the negative connotations of it.
I've thought about that ever since; I even posted about it once (on another site), and I wrote about it in one of my private journals a few years ago.
What do yall think (everyone, both sides, and inbetween, although ESPECIALLY anyone whom this applies too), about the term "smokephobic"?
I recently coined "smokephillic" to describe like... which is actually describes myself, btw. That's something I'm into. I don't make a big deal about it (or about like smoking being attractive, etc.) like I did back then, because I since found out that young children read these forums, and I just don't like that, you know... So now I seldom post about that, except briefly, or in vague, abstract terms.
Anyway, we can discuss what the appropriate term should be. In fact that would be a very worthwhile discussion (btw, I welcome any comments about what I was talking about just then).
However, mixing up "Do and Don't Do" verses "Like and Don't Like", is the epitome of incorrectness!!! I mean call it ANYTHING except that, you know!!!
Anyway sorry about the nitpicking, but I just had too point that out.
About the other, yes, post it on the door, and let each individual make a individual decision about it. That is fair for EVERYONE (Smokers, Smokephobic persons, and Smokephillic persons) all, equally! Right? If I am incorrect about that, please do explain how.
I could've smoked a whole pack of cigarettes in the time it'd take to read that grammatical nightmare, if I smoked...which I don't.
