I also suffer from severe nasal allergies and I must clear my nose or I cannot breathe. When I do have to clear my nose, I use a tissue and try to be as subtle as possible. I don't think it's fair that you guys are criticizing people who blow their noses. Some people have a good reason (allergies) to do it.
