    "That's sneer culture," Yudkowsky grimaced as he peered down at the uneducated masses. "Those fools hope to think they're so much better than you - watch how they band together with those of like mind, desperately seeking others to support their cause and fuel their egos. Watch how they preach to crowds that hang on every word they already believe in! How detestable, the act of thinking yourself knowledgeable beyond average - how deplorable, those people who look down on others just for liking different things and having different values!"

    Yudkowsky smiled, pleased, as his adoring fans echoed their agreement and sang his praises to the sky.

    He never did realise that he was describing himself.

    Rofl. I think the effect is better if you leave out the last line though. It's pretty obvious what you are getting at.

    Also is "sneer culture" another LW invention? I've never seen the term used before.
