Ummm... Larry, I hope you are just posting this rant because Rustom Mody's remarks reminded you of it.  I hope that you do not personally subscribe to this behavior.

Yes, I too was a bullied nerd when I was young.  I don't use my history as an excuse to do unto others what was done unto me.  No one should.  No one should bully another person, period.  It's not "entertainment," it's a deeply harmful practice, and does not deserve any respect.
