    So the degree of polarization created by any specific topic can now be judged by the extent to which it perturbs or aggravates cxwrench? He seems to stand mostly alone in his disdain for "brifter".

    Apparently the most polarizing thing on this forum is when those meanies say things like "Post this thread to the correct forum" or "Why don't you do a simple search before asking that question for the 20th time this year?"

    I can answer your last question statistically. Those that care about this topic, outnumber most other topics posted over the last several days according to the posts posted.

    Polite and to the point I guess.
    However the thread topic was "What is the the most polarising topic in terms of cycling?"
