And not anti-helmet but anti-compulsion and anti-junk science.

Yes; I can read attribution lines, thanks.

However, when you wrote "This is such a stupid comment", you went on to
talk about helmets. I am right to say that you completely failed to
realise John wasn't talking about helmets at all, since if that had not
passed over your head that would be the obvious response to LSMike.

You're the one making the statement; the burden of proof is on you.

You're the one who's got so worked up as to resort to abuse.

i've never been wild about helmets (too hot) but yes the idea that some
foam with incents cut out are going to much rather just compressing in
all but most minor of bumps.
