I think it's great, I'd do it.

What I don't get about CM is the whining. OK, so you get a bunch of people together who intentionally antagonize motorists, intentionally block intersections, violate traffic lights, etc - THEN whine because the cops shut them down? Duh, no kidding. OF COURSE people get pissed. Wasn't that the goal?
