There seems to be a common mental problem a lot of (supposedly) gifted
hackers share. Exactly that particular kind of self-satisfied (or rather
self-reassuring) arrogance. Those familiar with Gentoo will have seen it
in ciaranm's rants, now on the webpage of the exherbo project and many
such places.

And you know what? Fuck them.

As to that particular sentence on it does not annoy me
as much, as I find a dose of self-irony in it (perhaps I'm wrong).

However those reading it literally are, well... just kinda hilarious.
