Its not a cultural thing. I certainly found it creepy as well.

And I also agree that its a self-serving post. He basically boosted his own profile by tearing down a popular community member for linkbait and then injected himself into the conversation all over the place. And clearly the author has very little perception that what he's done here is in any way wrong, he's been defending and promoting it all over the place. Ugh
