No, I'm lame. Lol. To be honest, whenever I see someone doing that, it makes me think they are a beginner because a) they must not know it's a bad habit, and b) it's their way of letting everyone know that they're cool and drive stick. That being said, I catch myself doing it every now and then

I'm too paranoid to do it in the bmw, but do it all the time in the benz. If you feather the clutch without raising revs to like 1000, it's not really bad for the clutch...

^ those are people that rev up to 3 grand every time they stop rolling back and actually take off quickly. I don't consider this clutch abuse, I don't even touch my gas i just ease off the clutch. clutch abuse is racing starts or anytime your drop your clutch at high revs.

^^that's not entirely true, you can burn your clutch at idle if you try to hard enough.

Yeah that's pretty much the point here. Whenever your clutch plate is slipping against the flywheel wear occurs. So each time you rock at a light consider it the same as if you were starting from a stop. It's not going to kill your clutch but the bottom line is that it will wear out your clutch faster than if you were to just come to a stop.

Anyone who does that plain and simply doesn't know how to drive standard properly (yes, i'm an instructor and this is my professional opinion). To show proper skill, the handbrake is pulled to hold the car. Then disengaged at exactly the right moment the clutch is engaged when the light turns green. When done perfectly, the car should not roll backwards 1". By law, if you back into someone accidentally on an incline you're at fault (had a noob do it to me once). Any iota of logic will tell you that the clutch is taking a beating while you rub-it-to-hell holding your 3500lb sled on the hill.
