In a case like the OP, however, I would never do it because a) sight lines were poor, b) the rider made the effort to get up to speed, and c) I wouldn't tailgate a motorcycle because of the added risk of injury in a rear end collision.
I also wouldn't do it to an under powered car who was making the effort to merge (I've owned VW bugs and a Geo Metro myself).
The ones that irritate me are the fast powerful cars who simply refuse to merge at traffic speed.
So you punish drivers who displease you.
