Hey Nerd, Don't Be An Asshole!
Through some lucky quirk of fate, my contact with fellow geeks and nerds, even on the Internet, has almost always been positive and generally pleasant. I've never had the misfortune to much come in contact with the nerd-rage, entitled fan cesspool that gathers in some quarters. Heck, most of my nerd-friends have been girls! But I am aware (especially via the rantings of Dorian), and saddened by, this contingent, even if I know they're only one facet of the larger community, and also that every group has assholes. So this article meets with my most enthusiastic and hearty approval. Nerds shouldn't be close-minded jerks! What a concept!
