Presenting a rebuttal based on facts or even on reality will not alter their opinion and will be an exercise in futility.
Admittedly this particular person comes off more as a motorist than a cyclist. Expressing the opinion that as cyclists we have some sort of "duty" to "always" get out of the way of motorists. As I've said, they regularly "release" in times, and places, and under conditions where numerous others have told them that we would not. They also have the annoying habit of calling anyone who disagrees with them a "troll."
