Looks like a good example of "tall poppy syndrome"

Care to give some recent examples to justify your comment?
I cant remember the last time I mentioned an antic of his. I have suggested to others in the past that they contact him for technical information.

I agree he has some interesting personality traits. Takes all kinds to make a world. He is like an encyclopedia on some subjects. I am prepared to take the occasional tongue lashing when the information is good.
