radios, love 'em or hate 'em? plus awesome poll

I got the idea for this post from a discussion in yesterday's post-stage comments, in which a few people voiced their opinions for or against dropping radios for 2 stages of the Tour.  For my part, and yesterday's boring stage aside, I like the idea of losing the radios - to my mind, it just makes thinking a more central part of racing, and I also think it favours attacking cycling.  However, the fact that so many of the riders and teams opposed the experiment makes me second-guess my opinion on the matter - it seems like there are some real safety concerns, for example, and frankly I tend to give the riders the benefit of the doubt when it comes to safety.

Anyways, now that we've seen a stage without the radios, and in all likelihood still have one to come, what do people think?
