    People who adopt the point of view of a public commentator and not only fail to think critically about it but then defend it against overwhelming fact presented by the other side of the discussion.

    I agree but couldn't you just say that person/people lack debating skills?

    I'm certain everyone hates these: Punctures!
    Last time out, this stupo went with no spare tube, lever or pump, nor my phone.
    Here's the reasoning: My riding buds have their phones, don't need mine.
    They have their their repair kits, don't need mine.
    I flat, mention that I have flatted, wasn't heard, and they rode onward.
    About 15 minutes later, someone inquired as to my whereabouts.
    Two riding buds from the group come back and find me.
    Tire gets fixed. I curse myself the rest of the way back.
    I will never again go without my repair kit and phone. Why don't I know better?
    Because I am The Stupo! :-[

    Sort of but I think they are 2 different things.  Its one thing to have an opinion and be incapable of presenting / defending it without resorting to childish name calling and diversionary falacious reasoning.  Its another thing to have adopted said dumb opinion because somone said it in print or on the radio and having accepted it as fact without questioning it first.

    I am not going to name any names at this point as it would pull the topic sideways but I am sure than anyone reading this -  of ANY political, social, sporting, whatever inclination - has already formed the name of A commentator they disagree with who has moronic followers of this type.

    Keep in mind, its not just politics etc I am talking about.  Its anything.  Like the lemmings that follow whatever retarded diet some nobody celebrity seems to have endorsed in an article in a crap magazine, for instance.

    Actually, on reflection, I think the problem I have is people who fail to think logically and critically for themselves - rather than the debating part.

    Hear, hear, Martin...... YES!! Totally agree.

    The lemming-like adoption of any stance, whether it be through blind adoration or as a paid mouth-piece for a person, party or product, is painful at any level..... as the recipient.

    Used to be the same for me until I came here. Some Belgian employers pay you a certain amount of your salary in meal vouchers, which come in denominations of between €5-8 each and are valid in some restos, cafés and all supermarkets. Handing over a wad of 20 or so when you do your weekly shopping - each of which must be stamped and subtracted from the total - really (to borrow Ram's phrase) grates the arse of those behind you. So I no longer hold the moral high ground on those old ladies. ;)

    And these are pet hates, things that annoy you when they probably shouldn't. Just a few I can think of from my time online:

    People who throw their gel and bar wrappers on the road in amateur road races. Don't really like it when the pros do.

    Worse - MTB riders and racers doing the same thing in otherwise perfect forest.  Nobody seems to care that the organisers of events have been warned that if rubbish is left behind they won't get permits in future..  Doesn't matter how many warnings about this are given.   No, it is MUCH more important to throw the gel on the ground instead of putting it in your pocket.  Whats that you say?  It makes your pocket sticky?  Thats what a washing machine is for you jerk!  Can't stop and deal with your mess, it will affect your ability to stay within 2 hours of the winner's time!

    Actually, interesting case. I cant stand AFL. Collingwood is just the team I had as a kid before I found worthwhile sports like cycling.  Its always funny to see people try to annoy me by insulting the pies. ACF I ain't. ;-)
