Why do you all seem to be so mad at wheelsuckers? They don't hurt you or slow you down right? In fact, having an audience should make you faster. You guys are over reacting like a bunch of girls (no offence to the ladies out there).

I don't mind wheelsuckers, but I think it's safer for both parties if the wheelsucker would announce him/herself. If I need to brake suddenly, and the wheelsucker runs into me and takes me down, I will be upset (to put it mildly).

Also, if I'm doing a solo ride and do not want the responsibility of pointing out hazards or announcing when I'm slowing/stopping, I do not want wheelsuckers around, announced or not. Call me selfish, but it's my ride. If someone sticks on my wheel that day, they shouldn't expect the typical courtesies.
