Is this selfish?

I started commuting by bike back in September. In November, they installed this bike rack. I was commuting by bike twice a week, then thrice as time allowed, then 4 days per week, and now I pretty much use my bike daily. Today's the last day of bike to work week, yet in all the months I've parked on this rack, I've never, ever seen another bicycle locked up to it.

Today, I decided I'd park it like this from now on. I think it's a little selfish, but it's a little more stable and secure as well. Am I a bastard? Does this make me evil?

Wave racks are the devil.

In my mind, that's how you should lock to it.

Umm, is there another way to use this rack?

Ditto. First come, first serve.

Wave racks are as about as useful as tits on a nun. The only way you can secure your bike to them is exactly how you did so. As long as there isn't a huge massive groundswell in the number of Cyclocommuters at your office you're ok.

I tend to think wave racks are more ornamental sidewalk sculpture than a bike security fixture.
