    My hat is off to our two Denver forum members who braved the TV cameras for all of our benefits!!!!! You guys did great. The lesson I have learned from your all's experience is that the reporter will edit your remarks to less than 1% of what you actually said. So I guess when being interviewed, I would answer every questions the same way: Ques: What is your name? Ans: Electronic Vaporizers are a wonderful alternative to real cigarettes with NONE of the carcinogenetic chemicals so they are much better for me than cigarettes and produce nothing but water vapor with no smell so they will not offend non-smokers or harm non-smokers. Ques: Where do you live? Ans: Repeat answer above, etc, etc, etc, etc, on and on and on.

    I will leave them with nothing to edit, lol.

    I forgot, once I saw the actual video, it definitely scewed the story towards a cost issue instead of a better alternative to smoking. They should have allowed our forum members the ability to demonstrate and explain the advantages of the vaporizer to others in the resturant and I bet at least some of them would have given a positive response.

    That being said, I actually believe it was a better presentation of e-vaporizers than I have seen in other TV news clips. Let's just say it could have been worse and our forum members did a great job.

    Thanks to you guys who braved the cameras, really good job! I credit you for the not-evil tone of this report. :)

    My one suggestion for future press interactions by members... I think we're fully better off sticking to showing the cartridges, and avoid dripping and juice issues.

    You know guys, I must say "Thank You" for going into a public place and tolerating the stares and attitude from the other patrons. When I watched that video, I could not believe how much of a hate these non-smoking .......s have against smokers from a public setting.

    I never realized how much I hid from the public when smoking....just now, I realize all the DisneyLand trips I made where I had to endure some little 12 year old walking down the Big Thunder path (next to the smoking section) and doing their little coughing bit, treating me like I was some retard. IN the meantime, that 12 year old will probably be diagnosed with ADD or as being BiPolar....do I get to treat them with disrespect and mock them by walking by making a retard noise and flapping my hands wildly? When do I get to treat others as second rate citizens?

    In the end, I still don't flaunt my e-cig and openly challenge the "rules". I go out to the smoking section, or go in my car, to vape. Why do I do that? Because people have been treating my habitual addiction as something that made me second rate. (Yet I'm a B student in college and a very much desired person at work, loving father, etc...)

    I was just sitting here and thinking about that video...the old lady with her attitude problem. You're a second rate citizen but she's well on her way to using the kindness of others grant her a parking spot in the front row, or using some of our tax payer money to wipe her ... after she uses the restroom because she doesn't have the dexterity anymore. But she looked down on you.

    For stepping into that environment, I thank you. Will be jumping on the "in your face" bandwagon here. I need to vape in a mall after I eat my food in the food court. I need to go to DisneyLand, stand in line, and vape. I need to vape in movie theaters and restaurants, bowling alleys, and bars.

    Why? Because I don't get out much being a second rate citizen...the people have sh*t on me for 10 years now. It's my turn to start letting them know that we have probably done what they wanted...the suppliers have eliminated the danger to others by eliminating second hand smoke. That danger to others was the only legitimate platform the anti-smoking campaigns had against smoking.

    I think it is time.

    Yes, thanks for the effort on everyone's behalf - wish there could be more like that.
    (& thanks for the link Sun)

    However, if I was an 'un-interested' non-smoker,
    I still think I'd have caught most of the negative general inuendos,
    rather than the few 'personal' positives:

    'illegal', 'unregulated' and general uncertainty
    vs
    'helped me a lot'

    Still no publicity is bad publicity ..... is it?

    It was a little unnerving sitting in the center of that crowd, but I didn't care really... And the lady sitting behind me was asking a bunch of questions on how it works and where to get one as she is a current smoker, but she didn't want to be on camera, so no one was able to hear her reaction. All in all, I had a good time doing it, and was glad to lend a hand for the cause.

    I loved the closing line: "they are being seized because they are made in China."

    Really? So if they are made somewhere else they wouldn't be seized? Sloppy wording.

    Ha ha, I just love our news here...

    Overall, I would say the story was fairly harmless as far as our cause goes. I find that the more the word gets out, the more smokers want to switch. I found out about e-cigs because I read an article questioning their safety. Now, I'm going smoke free with e-cig in hand!
