    No kidding.
    They're passive aggressive children. They block cars and pedestrians, yet when you try to ignore them and continue on your day, *you* are the ones at fault?! and get yelled at or bullied by them!
    And it you point this out to them (and this blog site), you're are bullied even more.
    BTW, it's also illegal.
    PS, I am going to be going about my day every friday, I am asking for the CM people to not block my way while I walk. Thankyou.

    cars block traffic (people one bikes, people walking, people in busses and yes even other people in cars) EVERY DAY. Critical Mass does not block traffic. It temporarily increases the capacity of the road as all of a sudden more people are moving on it than before - because bikes are uber-efficient.

    If you are trapped in a car there is a way out - Critical Mass is here to help you find that way out.

    Passive Aggressive (And downright violent) Car drivers need to channel their emotions into useful pursuits that address the conditions that lead to their entrapment. Picking on meek cyclists is a pretty sorry excuse for effective action. Joining Critical Mass and helping others to get out of their cars is one of many ways to address the problem. Not until a critical mass of us do this - every day - not just once per month - will people be free to not drive in the city to get places and our environment, our children, ourselves be safer...

    I like your blog, kindof immature and will probably offend more than it helps (As Critical Mass is regularly accused of being) but at least you open it up for discussion so some of those well worn cliches (about assuming your inalienable right to drive in circles as you see fit no matter how many people are in front of your car) can get examined.

    Take care and take the lane!
