Quite. I don't get this thing about "having" to say hello to other runners. If someone smiles at me or says hello, I'll acknowledge them. But I don't go out of my way to be sociable - after all, running can be hard work!
It's just as rude to require someone to be friendly to you as it is to be unfriendly - consider the person who just wants to read on the train and is being pestered by the person next to them. Person next to them wants to chat, and finds reader rude. We are all different.
