I sort of have a reputation for being the hot headed one here at the Arcade. I think that’s probably fair to say. I have a habit of saying very mean things to people I don’t agree with. As much as I might try not to be that guy it’s just sort of become my role.
That’s why it’s always nice to come into the office in the morning and read a post like the one Tycho made above. It’s such a rare treat to see PA waist deep in a good old fashioned blog fight and not be the asshole that started it!
I think Tycho did a pretty good job of laying out the basic ridiculous arguments of the post. I was especially proud of his “retard rodeo” line. He’s defiantly got a lot of internet asshole potential. I think with the proper grooming he could be a real dick someday. He still has a lot to learn though. I’m not saying I’m the guy to teach him but I did stand on a stage with Harlan Ellison and in front of a room full of his fans, purposefully mistake the master of speculative fiction for a writer of Star Wars books.
