I have split" illegally", would like to do legally, and have no arguments against it.
I'm not going to use "what if's" to excuse my desires be it splitting, standing, speeding, what ever. Sometimes I do them in reaction to a situation, sometimes I do them because I want to, but I'm always honest with myself, don't insult the intellegence of others, or try to snow job the ignorant.
Doing it when actually needed but technically illegal is beyond the scope of this academic debate.
