I have no right to stop you from enjoying your ride for now and choosing to go car-free as necessary. In fact, I do that myself. The ratio may be different - I drive no more than 50 miles a month, but I'm still not completely car-free.
I find it totally natural that people who post on the Living Car Free forum encourage people, including themselves, to live without a car (duh). I don't think you'd have any problem if I went on the Commuting forum and said I'd like more and more people to try commuting by bike, because this, that, whatever. I don't see the Living Car Free forum any differently.
