Perhaps in your investigation of the supercillious derider you have confused philosophy with psychology. I do not believe that in criticising others Joe has placed himself under any obligation to rationalise that criticism. Criticism for it's own sake is a rhetorical tool and a valid exercise so long as the criticism is of the idea rather than the person (and I am not sure if Joe has criticised any one person here).

So what do you say, Spratley? Is it time to hose it down and show a little tolerance?

Personally I find that Joe's posts, while they are not insightful, are at least amusing.
