I wasn't going to wade into this again, but I've got to call you on this. I wasn't criticizing your opinions or views, but rather your use of the rhetorical faux middle ground device that z jones describes so accurately. Where my comparison falls down, is that unlike masturbation, rhetorical wankery makes everyone go blind. (I didn't downvote you BTW.) - highwater

It is your use of the "faux middle ground", not mine.

I do not believe middle ground to be "faux". In the context of this debate there are those that support bike lanes, those that do not and those that don't really see what the big deal is either way, such as myself. By calling the position I hold "faux" you most certainly are criticizing my opinion. Not that I mind highwater, seeking approval for my opinions on the internet is not a high priority of mine and you are more than welcome to disagree with me. If you and z jones want to continue to see the world as one of absolutes you are more than welcome to.
