Ive heard comments like this too. Which is why I advocate vaping publicly. The stealth vaper isnt answering or refuting statements like those.Theyre too busy trying (and usually failing miserably to be stealthy) Personally they remind me (and probably others as well) of illicit drug users and that alone can cause quite a bit of fear and mistrust.

I dont vape while pumping gas for example because shorts do happen and because Im trying to consider others feeling and reactions. Even if its only a small chance that something can wrong, I have no right to take a chance with their lives like that.
In short theres no need to hide but theres no reason to be a douchebag about it either.

When playing poker I have ben asked what's in it and if there's anything in the vape I exhale and I let them know what I know.
It's just water vaper .
No problems yet.
I agree with you to a point, vaping in public should be done anywhere, BUT once you enter a store or any property of sorts you no longer have the "right" to just pull out your PV and go off. If the rules are no smoking and no e-cigs you are no longer on public property if the property owner chooses not to want said items used on his/her property that is his/her RIGHT.

I really don't see vaping being allowed indoors ever. No matter how much information is out there it still looks too much like smoke and people will continue to see it as such. I didn't start to vape just so I could do it anywhere I did it for my health. I feel and smell better and now I can go longer without it so its no big deal when Im out and about. Personally I think that anyone should be able to go to a store and not need to puff while you are in there.
Im not disagreeing with you there. Fortunately in Virginia we had a Commonwealth Attorney who was blessed with more common sense than most politicians. He ruled that electronic cigarettes do not smoke or combust so arent covered under non-smoking bans. This means we can vape pretty much anywhere we want but myself and most other vapers Ive seen try to temper that with courtesy and respect.

To think that if we hide vaping or vape where no one can see us they'll somehow allow vaping. "Boy those vapor's sure are polite the way they hide, let's give them a cookie and allow them to vape."
When has that historically ever happened?
I live in a pretty populated area, and I don't see massive crowds of people blowing huge plumes in people's faces. Is that something that actually happens?
See the post right above Caridwens.

That's it. It looks like smoking. If someone created a delivery system that released no vapor, vaping anywhere wouldn't be an issue. Not many on here would buy it, though.

I started Vaping 4 years ago. I was the only one doing it.Everyone thought I was weird, but I never blatantly vaped in public. I would always go out to a "smoking area" or stealth it.
A year ago and everyone is doing it. However almost no-one is discreet about it. No-one tries to stealth vape or at least keep it low profile. They just blow big clouds into the air.
Today, vaping is banned in most public places.
Now all I hear is Vapers screaming WHY!?
