Sounds like a programmer kicked that guy's dog. Either that or he's just trolling. Not that he's entirely wrong on everything, but a good portion of that 'rant' seems to be inflammatory for the sake of being so.

I second that.

Sounds like he's a wannabe Maddox. There's definitely a difference between humorous ranting that makes a valid point and that excursion to troll-town. Although I'd agree that some people in the "nerd" professions assume that everything that enters their heads is intellectual gold.

Not only does he -wish- he were Maddox. He goes so far as to make his site appear similar to Maddox's. Sadly he lacks the wit, and the eloquence (yeah, believe it or not) of Maddox and as such is a pale imitation at best.

As for the posting, he's right on a few points, but it sounds like someone failed his keyboarding 101 class and is quite bitter still. However when I call upon my devil's advocate, I can see his point (ever visit a linux channel on IRC and ask for help? Yeah, you'd want blood too).
