We recommend avoiding it whenever possible even though (or because) our office overlooks it (we've seen multiple crashes).
It's downhill, bicyclists can and should ride in the middle of the street with other traffic.
Every time a cyclist rides by a pedestrian within inches from behind, they are saying "I can maim and kill pedestrians without prosecution, being outside the law as I am." That's a political statement.
"I deserve special traffic lanes but don't pay license fees since I'm outside the law," that's a political statement.
Cyclists are their own worst enemies in public.
That said, you seem to be suggesting that ALL cyclists are assholes. This is simply not true; you're either wrong, espousing bigotry based on ignorant prejudice, or you're willfully lying. Either way, that rather undermines your complaint about The Stranger re-posting the article (beyond the fact that the forum is theirs - they don't owe you, me, or anyone else a platform and can moderate, delete, dismiss, or post comments as they see fit).
