Yeah, maybe you're right.
Reading Larry's blog post about this gives me visions of a high-functioning autist or even sociopath who doesn't understand why everyone just doesn't agree with him, god damnit, but if he just writes enough about it, he'll sway people to his point of view. And of course, he has never ever been wrong about anything. Ever. At least not in his own mind.
I've been there myself, I've had friends with the same tendencies, it's rather disturbing.
