I posted up on mtbr about the jeff jones/merlin frames which are going to be made available. All sorts of ridiculous and outlandish statements were made.
I can't help but feel that i agree very much with the people i agree with. I also deeply disagree with those i don't agree with. That may seem like it 'goes without saying', but i find myself nodding with those who say sensible things, in an informed and non-inflammatory way, and i can feel my blood boil at those who just open their mouths and spew all manner of idiotic words. There seems to be very little middle ground. Is it just because i have a closed mind and a blinkered outlook on life?
Why is it so polarising? Do people need to make such exaggerated counter points in order to feel their voices will be heard? or paid any attention to?
I just don't know. It is interesting sociologically and psychologically.
I'm just glad i agree with characters like don ferris of anvil bike works...reassuring.
