I don't get it gemsie, but it's hilarious nonetheless. He talks about smoking, and then you resort to a dictionary yourself, and what does it mention? Smoking a joint as an example of bogarting. Man, I thought I was funny!
In case you didn't get my comments earlier, they were somewhat subtle, thusly making them the more funny (rh ought to have known what I was talking about if he didn't). I only explain this because this seems to be what you mean by bogarting, that you don't understand what I find as funny (and in now revealing it thus I lose the bogartness of the situation if I understand your meaning). He's always on this kick of pushing ancient games (literally, wargames from the ancient world) while condemning anymore WWII games, so while my comment of him being a demagogue for what he said in that one particular post seemed to me to not fit terribly well, ended up with a whole other meaning when I looked it up, which I listed above, about an ancient leader for the common people, therefore rendering what was a straight comment about demagoguery into the humourous sphere. Oh well, if nobody gets it that's fine. It wouldn't be the first time, but I at least find your dictionary example pf bogarting quite humorous indeed, considering his comments of wanting to smoke something which we already know he's had more than his fair share of
