Ban sneezing in public places?

There was a talk about passing a city ordinance to ban sneezing in public places because it's very unhealthy and unsightly. It became a very hot issue but soon died down, nothing has been heard ever since. Do you see any sense in this idea?

I think that would be just great. Next we need an ordinance to ban breathing. But jokes apart, I think all that you can really ban is sneezing out in the open. If you use a tissue to sneeze in and the tissue is immediately sterilized, I guess that should be okay. That takes care of the health part. About the unsightly part, I guess we just need to find one individual who has never sneezed in his or her life, and ask them whether it is unsightly to sneeze.
