His rants, to me, demonstrate a very fine control
of his emotions. His posts are not the result of an angry guy pounding
the keyboard in a rage, but rather somebody who took great pains to
correct, *by argument*, the inanities, sloppy thinking and falsehoods
that he despised.
... Erik ... just became more and more beside himself trying to
penetrate folks' idiocy shields.
I finally ascribed this to a positive impulse within him: he respected
others /too much/. He could not just brush off someone as worthless,
because anyone once encountered was important to him. He was not
anti-social, he was too social. The sociopath is the one who does not
really know the other exists.
Erik went the other way, always wanting more out of us than we were
I don't know, I ended the sentence with a preposition, Erik would not be pleased.
