I think it's interesting how internet forums put a magnifying glass to people's true nature, even if they're hiding behind an anonymous screen name. I read through posts and it's very easy to spot the people who are really interested in the subject and enjoy talking about it, and even easier to spot the people who are just using the topic as an excuse for self-aggrandizement. I spend a lot of time on forums myself, but I'm not basing my self-worth on a fake image I present there. I'm just me, and my life is off in the real world. This is just something I do for fun. But every forum I stumble across seems to have its own resident armchair expert who takes up residence and tries to buffalo everyone else into paying attention to him. They must have had a French revolution in Hydrogen and AVS and sent Ubu Roi out on a rail covered in tar and feathers. Now we are fortunate to inherit their one eyed King-in-Exile.
