RE: vapers.org.uk - Nothing About Us. Without Us.
A feature article from vapers.org.uk:
Vapers in a Brewery

While it’s exhilarating being involved in vaping activism in the UK, it can also be deeply frustrating. The vaping community has such a wealth of passionate, talented and creative people that we should be able to move mountains. In reality we would be hard pushed to organise the proverbial in a brewery. Why can’t we vapers get our act together?

True, but...

We might not be able to move mountains, but if we all do our bit as individuals, I believe we have a chance to relocate many smaller hillocks! :--)

My chosen anti-propaganda plan of action is to comment on online news sites whenever I read misinformation, tabloid style scaremongering or as is often the case, poorly researched stories.

I think if more of us could do this it will partially neutralize the damage these articles do, and more importantly, make the people who write or sanction the bilge think twice before publishing. Let's face it, nobody likes to be publicly exposed as either an incompetent/dishonest journalist or a deliberate spreader of propaganda. I've actually noticed that a number of sites have toned down their anti-vaping rhetoric in recent months - even the Daily Mail has tried to add a bit of balance to their articles!

The secret is to keep spreading the true message and counter the crap with polite but forceful responses, backed up with the knowledge that most honest scientist are in agreement that vaping is a good harm reduction solution. I'm not kidding myself that it's the total answer to the propagandists, but if enough of us acting individually and with focus, hit the comments sections of even the least visited news websites, the combined effect could make a BIG difference! This approach also circumvents the need to be tightly organized.

Right, I'm off to nudge a few hillocks!
