It's called irony mate.

Boy, you do have a chip on your shoulder.

Well that's intellectual rigour, quoting a comedian.
I'm not going to argue with you any more Mike, because, I've spent many
years listening to your vitriol and inability to understand the concepts of
compassion or fairness, and watched many people I've admired on this list
waste countless hours on you. It's like talking to a brick wall - you never
answer questions directly, you misquote, you take out of context, you set up
straw men, you come across as rude, bullying and aggressive, you have never
once been wrong about anything (irony again!). I'm sorry if this is not how
you really are in real life and I expect you probably think you're an OK guy
yourself, but I honestly think as a lurker of longstanding (which you
doubted in your inimitable way in an earlier post, so as to cast doubt on my
opinion) this list would benefit from your absence.
