Yep. If it were me I'd feel highly uncomfortable.
It seems to come with the territory though, the more visible you are the more stuff like this you can expect.
> I don't know if this is a cultural thing, (not a US citizen, the majority of HN's readership seems to be) but I found the whole blog post weird and highly distasteful. The author comes across as a borderline stalker. Slimy.
I think the post is actually with the best of intentions but completely fails in two important aspects:
(1) I don't get the impression Patrick was asked if this was ok with him
(2) It is a huge post based on a single line in a comment
which talks about Patricks achievements to date, and
talks about him as though that's going to be his lot
