Default Open Letter to Mike Vandeman

snip troll bait

tsk tsk. One of the weaker attempts I've seen at showing Mike the error of
his ways. You should have simply emailed this to him, so that he can call
you a hypocrite in private instead of public. I've seen some very
well-written attacks on Mike, but they are summarily dismissed or completely
ignored. If sound arguments have had no affect, how do you expect this
shoddy effort to work?

Mike Vandeman is eternal.

Well, at least until he dies... so get used to it. =)

Once you get him to "idiot filter" you, you've reached the highest rank
possible in your quest to vindicate mountain bikers, and then you may rest
in sweet sweet bliss.

Mike Vandeman is eternal.

I hope not.

If he can bleed, he can die! And i would really like to know if someone
could make him bleed?

But again, is he worth it? Dont think so.

Your threat is duly noted. Mountain bikers think VIOLENCE solves all their
problems.

I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to
humans ("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8
years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)

That's a bit harsh, isn't John? I give him points for having waded through
Mike's website - something that I've never looked at myself. I'll have to
subtract some points for going too deep and finding out Mikes favourite food
though.

He's just a lonely guy (I assume) looking for attention. The more

attention
you give him, the more he hangs around. Your know the type. Kind of like

a
stray cat.



I suppose that you could imagine that's why he does it. But then again,
we'll never really know and he _has_ been doing it for over ten years now.
I would say simple obsession is a more likely reason. And with a stray cat
you can always put it out of your misery by getting the RSPCA - or you could
just shoot it.
