I don't know if this exclusive to this community, but I do want to create a new term to describe what I see as truly uniqe behavior.

"The Chet"
Everyone remembers Chet from "Weird Science" a classic John Hughes movie about growing up and/or "man-ing up", depending on your POV. In the movie there's a character portrayed by Bill Pulman that sums up many of those in this community.

Basically, a self-centered, polemicist who finds joy in making everyone elses life or post a miserable experience. This goes beyond trolling, as trolls attempt to hijack the topic.

Chet's see themselves as self-righteous and are determined to point out that you're an idiot and either you should have read the fine print or should have know better; you will get no sympathy fro the Chet...

All in favor?
“Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.”
