No, to me public means everyone which includes smokers. I don't like descrimination against anyone for any reason. If something bothers me like someone's smoke I just walk away.
No I don't. I'm an ex-smoker and this would be taking things too far. Especially when you consider the amount of pollutants that are given off by vehicles, industry etc. If the governments of the world stop them belching out dangerous crap into the atmosphere then by all means introduce some further restrictions on smoking. I'm all for making the environment safer for everyone, including smokers, but sometimes it feels like there is a bit of a witch hunt going on, not to mention paranoia.
Absolutely NOT! Smokers pay taxes the same as everyone else does, and smokers pay HIGHER taxes for tobacco than is even the least bit reasonable.
I feel yes because through smoking you not only spoils your health but all the passive smokers suffers due to that. Its better to smoke in an isolated area where you don't harm anyone else at least for your fun.
YES!!! there should be places or areas for smokers to go where non smokers cannot be affected

What percentage of hubbers are smokers? The percentage seems quite high, though I am NOT a smoker. Writers are historically known to be smokers, e.g. Mark Twain whom I believe was a heavy smoker.
