Anyone else notice that bikeshed has lost its original meaning and is
now synonymous with apathy?

Every discussion now boils down to four groups:

  1. The group in favor of a given proposal.
  2. The group against a given proposal.
  3. The apathetic group that keeps talking about bikesheds.
  4. The group that can't stand discussion and keeps trying to get
     everyone to shutup.

Why is it that group 3 is slowly becoming more annoying?
