He publishes his opinions in a (if you'll forgive the term as I am using
it literally) retarded PDF format, and then he whines about the fact
that people are currently using a term (IA) differently than he and his
friends did almost twenty years ago.

Then he proceeds to construct a series of strawmen (to wit, the "drunken
sailors containment strategy",
<http://www.google.com/search?q=%22drunken+sailors+containment+strategy%
22>) to tear down.

Finally, I can't tell exactly, but is he confusing PeterMo with PeterMe?

Troll! Very Advanced Troll, but Troll.

Just what the practice needs, a Unabomber manifesto. For as long as I
could stand to read it, it was like bad refrigerator magnet poetry. A
near infinite score in bullsh*t bingo. A self-serving diatribe of
impossible density.

Where's Good Will Hunting when you need him?
