You really are my last chance to find some justice
and common decency. I regularly contribute to a cycling
forum under the name Matt B to point out to cyclists
the (many) errors of their ways. Despite my endless
generosity and selfless devotion to ‘posting’
fresh opinions regularly, I’ve found that my
candid views have upset many other cyclists. Some
members of the forum have now labelled me as ‘Matt
the Troll’ and suggest that I am some sort of
sexual deviant. All very sad as I would have expected
a more mature debate. You seem to be someone that
can see both sides of the argument and are well respected.
Can you suggest how I should proceed? Some of the
things that have been said are very hurtful - so much
so that I feel numb and unable to post.

What is this forum you speak of? If it’s on
the internet then my Olivetti Echo laptop can only
connect to pick up mail by a thing called a ‘gold
card’? I use the local library to get the links
in the articles - the assistant there is very nice.
(My december Contraflow had no links because the library
was closed). Of course I’m sure they don’t
really want you to stop posting your opinions Matt.
From what you’ve said your emails have inspired
them to new levels of abuse. I’d like to see
some of the insults - they may cheer me up a bit as
things have been a bit quiet here! They’re quite
a cruel lot, the cycling fraternity. You should be
honoured that they even take the time to insult you!
Boris S called from the Hague. Message is ‘he
will deal with you shortly’. He is currently
helping NATO with a security matter but hopes to break
off from discussions and be free to meet you soon.
The tone of your Contraflow articles has continued
to disappoint him and there have been signs that you
may be siding with the ‘green lobby’.
Who is this well wisher in CHE of whom you speak?

You may remember my letter about cyclists being idiots?
I have since ‘hardened’ my view to include
nanyone that fraternises with them. You would now
do well to stay clear of CityCycling if you value
your long term health and welfare.
Dear Mr Radzynski
Please send my regards to Boris and assure him that
I will attend to his grievances in due course.
