I refuse to use the term because I think “hobby” should apply to stamp collecting, etc. Among others, perfect storm has long disagreed, quoting the definition of the term.
Fine, but it just occurred to me that one major thing setting this activity apart from other “hobbies” is that it is illegal in most places in this country.  And it’s only quasi-legal in many others like Canada and Sweden.  So how can an illegal activity be a “hobby?”  I say it can’t.  Are there any other “hobbies” that are also illegal? I can’t think of any. Discuss amongst yourselves.
And don’t ever call me a “hobbyist.”
