I mentioned BF on a group ride and someone said, "There's a bunch of *******s at that website."

It is a core group, just a few people who are consistent in their behavior and it doesn't take someone calling people clowns to set them off. All it takes is a simple question or mistaken assumption and they immediately attack.

Bullies will always exist but the herd mentality is strong and some I've had respect for have joined the stampede.
