Default Light gives out Heat (was: Bracelets for Bike Lanes?)


Jym Dyer wrote:
= Don Quixote


Flame wars are about the safest wars around and can only
bring some light--and hopefully some action--into the issue.


=v= The entire history of cross-posted flamewars on Usenet
suggests otherwise. Heat is not light. And starting this
thread on rec.bicycles.* is rude; the whole point of having
separate rec.bicycles.* newsgroups is to discuss what one is
interested in. (Note Followups to one -- and only one ---
rec.bicycles.* newsgroup.)

=v= You seem to be the "Don Quixote" (a.k.a. "nolionnoproblem")
who subscribed to dozens of email lists last December and
cross-posted a "campaign for bike lanes" thread to all of them.
And in followups you quoted responses from one email list and
sent them to others. This confused and angered people. It
also prompted a few trolls to subscribe to email lists they had
not otherwise caught wind of. All in all, light was not shed.

=v= Learn from this. When people tell you nicely that they
object to off-topic cross-posted flamewars, if your response
is to dismiss them, their response will be likewise.

Sorry, but I see a common thread through them: BICYCLES. This affect
every cyclist out there, whether serious, casual or in-between. We may
as well have included a few more groups: ENVIRONMENT, DRIVING, PEACE
and even TERRORISM, since it is our gluttony that's feeding it...

'Bike for Peace is here to help you withdraw your dollars from oil
companies which profit from "oil wars" and create environmental and
social catastrophes world-wide.

Now is the time to get involved and help make a bike friendly world a
reality.'
