Self evidently, it fails to provide the same information on how the anti-tobacco industry, almost entirely (if not totally) funded by the taxpayer, distorts public health debates by misrepresenting research, having self-referential research, and outright lies and misdirection while also lobbying Government.
Sadly, they also seem to document those whose only involvement with the tobacco industry is as a customer and are sick of bully-statism whereby taxes are 'stolen' to pay for their activities.
This is probably an extension of something seen over The States:
More recently ASH (2012) decided that almost anyone, public, private, business, that had any problem with anti-tobacco tactics was fit to be listed, slotting those that didn't easily fit into the neat groups of 'Big Tobacco,' 'Retail Groups,' 'Trade Bodies,' etc could be brushed into the 'front groups' category and be accused of 'astro-turfing' to the point where 'private blogs' were also included in the report
It was noticed on 1st July 2012, that they'd decided to list the owner of this website  simply because of an FoI request into why Smokefree South West thought it wise to spend nearly £.5 million of taxpayers money on lobbying the government. That FoI was made long before this site was created, and the result of that (and other FoI's into SFSW's contributions to anti-tobacco activity ) was - in part the reason for the creation of this site.
For some reason the researchers behind the site seem unaware of pseudonyms being used on the internet, especially with blogs, and they seem to have a problem with determining who says what:
Despite their 'right of reply' policy
this incorrect citation (created June 1) remains on their site more than one month after it was pointed out.
