I will agree with this, there are many examples where yield signs (for all traffic) would be far more appropriate then stop signs, especially in lower traffic suburban areas. Two way stops and two way yields I think are a much better alternative to four way stops.

However, I'm sure the reason for four way stops is to press the "Everyone is at fault when an accident happens" that traffic law seems to have fallen in love with. Probably because it reduces the liability of insurance companies, but lets not get into that.

As far as getting bent out of shape, maybe it's because for a driver, that's a $100+ ticket and demerit points and for a cyclists it is a warning typically, if it's even noticed by law enforcement.
