The whole thing is just about senseless from the first post.

car-free doesn't suit every person, every lifestyle, every situation .... and some people seem to find that really hard to accept.

I feel like i have entered into some sort of Fanatic Zone ... oh, wait. Sorry, I didn't read the sign on the door.

Again, he chose to post in the LCF forum and challenged people to explain how he could do his trip car-free, and people politely responded and explained that he would have to do a different trip or at least do things a little differently. And of course he is free to ignore these comments. Where are you seeing all this fanaticism and senselessness? Are you sure you just aren't distorting things through some kind of lens of preconception that people here must be some kind of hard-core zealots, and reading that into perfectly sensible comments?

Except for 3alarmer, of course
