I'm completely amazed at how some people have no problems breaking their necks to see what someone is typing or watching on their ipad/smartphone.

Is this considered normal? One of these days, I'm gonna take a selfie with one.

It's happened to me once where a man was making a serious effort to read my text messages. My next text was "Wow this m-f'er on the train is breaking his neck to read this." He backed off and got off at the next stop.

Very typical defensive excuses of uncivilized manners...

Certain rights do not have to be protected by written rules...common sense should do.

Glad that He did not stab or slap you for that.

Yes, I thank my lucky stars daily.

Should I just have let him continue his a-hole behavior in fear of retribution? Please.

It's not a defense. Simply saying that you can't expect other riders to adhere to your comfort zone. People do a lot of crap that pisses me off on the subway.
