From linked node...
I'm happy to put the extra effort in to "be polite" when the path is obvious to me and I have the extra time. But when my time is limited, I'm going to yell "get your hand off the stove, now!", and not worry about how to phrase that so as not to damage their ego. I'd rather make a difference than be well liked (as I've said once or twice before, in here).
Except when you don't, which is quite often. You being polite, objective and "just the facts" is absurd. If that was the case, people wouldn't have such a problem with your terrible attitude and your assine ways. PERIOD. You are the complete polar opposite to wassercrats. Smart, but not at all wise. You lack the ability to be everything you claim and be civil. Compare your write up to someone like tye, theorbtwo or tachyon. While tye may be more sarcastic than some, he's hardly ever rude. to2 and tachyon NEVER let their emotion in. Look at, "the facts". Go read their nodes, really. And if you can't see how you are offensive, then you really are no better than wassercrats or some others who's ego's just blind them. And to think that people aren't at all fragile is more proof that you are only that, smart.
And speaking from emotion, anyone can be smart, but it takes a bigger person to know that it's not only about being smart. You lose complete respect from me, and maybe others, EVERY time you decided to act, for no better words, a jerk. And you aren't excused. You've said in your own home node that you are a bit of a jerk. A better person would minimally try to rectify that, and not just continue. I equate you to a human with autism. Idiot savant. Someone who is vertically intelligent. Austic even. And to compare you to an autistic person is an insult to them more than anything else as they can't help benig the way they are. You on the other hand, could have (I assumed), but decided to go the other route.

Then B.I. said, "Hov' remind yourself
nobody built like you, you designed yourself"
