Well, ummm...you see ebikes are...umm

Yeah, basically you're correct.

Ill admit I'm conflicted on e-mountain bikes. Not sure what the use model is. If you want to ride offroad and want electric get an e-MX bike. If you want exercise and riding trails get a pedal mtb. I'm just not sure what the sporting aspect is for e-mtbbikes? Less conflicted on the road, especially for commuting applications.

Once e-mountain bikes become indistinguishable from regular pedal mtb's, they are going to be banning all bikes on many trails (frankly they are damn close already). That concerns me. Would ruin one of my favorite things.

Well I'm part of the problem then...
I don't care about exercise, I dont bicycle for that. I just want to have fun on the trails. I use mine for riding any terrain.
I dont know anything about banning, that sounds like a lot of raving from alarmist egomaniacs. No one has ever said a word to me on the trail.
I do know this, I wouldnt be on a bicycle period without electric assist. personally I think most cyclists are arrogant assholes

Nope already a thing. With some limited exceptions, e-bikes are considered motor vehicles and are banned on trails where motor vehicles are banned. At least around me most trails already prohibit them.

Explain to me how the 'asshole' within evaporates with the addition of an electric motor? Your either an asshole on a bike or your not. Not sure how pedaling (or not) without sweating changes that.

I said "most" which means not everybody who rides a bike is an asshole - although the spandex brigade around here is trying hard to disprove that...
