Ever had one of those weeks...?
 

Can you believe it? First Boltar and Nick H accused me of being too
strongly anti-car. Now the u.r.c lot are accusing me of being too
strongly pro-car! (*sigh*) Only on Usenet...

That'll teach you for mentioning the c-word.

Are you trying to have a balanced opinion about cars then? I'm sure

Do you work for the BBC? Normally they're the only ones being accused of
bias by both sides simultaneously.

They're biased against everybody? Isn't that "impartial"?

Indeed. In fact, on usenet, one should strive to be positively unbalanced.
