I'm awaiting his answer.

I think he is asking for a permaban, all the way to the third or fourth generation of his descendents.

Lacks some context. However, it sounds like he hates cyclists who ride on the road.

Maybe it is a compliment that cyclist are addicted to their sport once they are "hooked"

smoke addicts contribute to the tax base the same way cycle addicts do, by buying something they really shouldn't?

Apparently not.

With that said, it's my opinion that I have absolutely no idea what he is trying to portray with his statement. In essence, it appears he has difficulty crafting the English language. And stuff.

Maybe you're already taking this into account, but for anyone who doesn't know it, smokers contribute. Even when their medical expenses are paid by the gov, they don't collect as much pension as the non smokers. It's the people who live longer who are a drain.

Of course that's only for as long as the pensions hold up, then it's everyone for themselves.

Besides,most of the cyclists here choose to smoke magic mushrooms from what I gather.
The guy may have a point of light on his issue.

Maybe we should stop leaving our dirty spokes in the road where people may injure themselves or catch some disease.

What he means is that sucking on a cigerette is like sucking on a bicylist. Both are a choice and both can be addicting.

Captain, my inter-galactic translator seems to be malfunctioning again.

Of course he's allowed an opinion. And if he offers it where we can hear it, we are allowed to have the opinion that he is a blooming idiot.

This was not on this forum at all. It was actually in a thread that I started asking why I had a cigarette lighter in my vehicle yet no ashtray. I made it clear that I didn't smoke, I was just wondering why the manufacturer would do that even though it had two ports for charging devices. This was one of the responses and I just can't tell what he meant by it, that's all. I asked him and he never replied.

Me too. But my friends know why and how my mom passed away. I won't judge them or tell them how to end their life, I just look at them and imagine my mom's suffering all over again.

Can't let your personal experiences cause you to verbally judge friends and associates.You'll just lose friends/assoc. at a very rapid pace and become known as a social "pain in the ass".

We're human and thus all have bad habits.

This wasn't meant to be a troll thread. I honestly did not understand what he meant when he said that smokers are as bad as cyclists.
