Xah Lee does this stuff in 4 or 5 groups he's decided to post random
things to.  They rarely have any relevance or substance, just his
personal thoughts.  He liked to provoke arguing and tell everyone he's
a genius in his own mind.  It's best to just filter his posts out like
most of us have already done.  I don't know what group you're seeing
his post in, but he bugs us in the Perl group all the time, cross
posting things that have nothing to do with Perl (same with his cross
posts to Python, too). :-)
