I think someone is, I hope unconsciously, trying to improve his self esteem by stomping on the patronage of certain websites, expecting the commenters here to eloquently support him.

Either that or he he is consciously being arrogant.

Anyone reading Joel Spolsky or Jeff Atwood is already above the norm, because they are actually trying to learn and improve themselves. This can be proven by simply comparing the number of visitors to blogs and sites like theirs with the total number of people that could benefit from readin those sites.

I vote for "the submitter is very arrogant and full of himself".

People who feel they're better than everyone else because of where they work aren't very impressive, imho.
