The problem is, Bikealong, you're comparing apples and oranges. Breaking a nonsensical rule (law) that causes no inconvenience or danger to anyone (running a red light) yet evokes the highest levels of vitriol is, at worst, anti-social. It's very rarely dangerous. Willfully getting in the way of others, putting them in danger is far more serious (speeding, imposing might over priority (there is not such thing as right of way (yes I'm aware I've nested braces here))) evokes far less antipathy yet is a much more serious problem.
Victor had a legitimate complaint. Non conforming behavior which inconveniences your fellow man is a bad thing. Non conforming behavior which has no impact, i.e. the overwhelming majority of red light running cyclists, "meh."
Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . .
