Nerd of Redheadâ€™s monotonous drivel even starts to irritate his fellow zealots:

Nerdâ€™s â€œwho cares about your OPINIONâ€ â€œthat is just your opinion *floosh*â€ and all the varieties are kinda annoying.
Sorry, Nerd of Redhead!
(Iâ€™m skimming the Ars Techinca thread, and I noticed Iâ€™ve started skipping Nerdâ€™s comments since they are same old same old anyway. Sorry, Nerd!)
Since this is a regular, Nerd canâ€™t very well respond by *flooshing* this OPINION down the sewer. So he writes as follows:

Beatrice, The guy was a serial poster essentially not reading or comprehending the arguments against him. He thought by being extra slippery and extra stubborn he would win the argument. So, I just made sure anybody reading the thread would understand he wasnâ€™t saying anything backed up by facts, just throwing out shit and arguments at random to keep talking, hoping something would stick. The fact that I kept dismissing what he said was a big insult. His poor ego deflates when he isnâ€™t taken seriously.
Not a convincing defence, as the Nerd always treats both serial and non-serial posters in his
stereotypical fashion (He is anything but inimitable, in fact. If he wanted to take a break, any number of people could replace him and nobody would be able to tell the difference).

Thoughtcrime, I see what youâ€™re saying. Please understand that people here have dealt with a LOT of the â€œno true _â€/â€itâ€™s not ALL badâ€ stuff, and also a lot of the â€œIâ€™m not a _ butâ€¦â€ stuff. Also, Nerd, despite other good traits, has this weird fetish for selectively and summarily dismissing certain statements as â€œOPINIONâ€ and therefore worthless becauseâ€¦well, just because. I guess itâ€™s his opinion. Donâ€™t read too much into it.
Apart from one commenter weakly defending NoR by pointing out that his adversary was being repetitive too, nobody rushes in to offer safe hugs to the Nerd for being so painfully stabbed in the back. Nobody likes the guy, but he is part of the furniture. He's like a hideous, cracked leather sofa that is too big to be easily disposed of.
This concludes my fieldwork in Pharyngula territory for today. It always feels like visiting a parallel universe, but to me that is part of the fascination of it. Apart from the lulz, of course.
