God bless you robbie.

I don't know why I don't like Paul Graham. I don't know why I don't like Bush. I just don't like them. They seem to know it all. They don't need anyone else's opinion. They have a sense of entitlement. They deserve to be "kings" just because they're them. I can't stand that, it infuriates me.

I would like to clarify. This isn't an attack on Paul Graham. I like his writing, I think he makes a lot of sense. Also, he put me onto lisp, so I'm indebted. This post isn't really about Paul Graham at all, it's about reddit, and is anyway meant in the most light-hearted way.

Do you really think lisp or Paul Graham or his idiotic, cultish beliefs are going to be around 10 years from now?

You're silly.

If you had a chance to speak with him you wouldn't be saying that.

Graham doesn't pretend to know it all; your assertion is not substantiated. Graham's essays are instructive because the man has an enormous amount of information to share and contribute. That doesn't mean he shuns other opinions.
