Yes, as a History Teacher, I can agree that the practice of smoking may be
period;  But, as you pointed out above (however obnoxiously), the methods
which are seen today were NOT period.  You have not only contradicted your own
arguement but have invalidated the idea of you, yourself, being courteous by
refering to those to whom an authentic environment is paramount as a "Nazi"
(and also I shall site you for incorrect punctuation usage on that
apostrophe!).  I am not a "Nazi" (as I am sure you are certainly swearing
right now) but only one to whom attention to detail is important.
