How would you folks describe a "Coberst" ?

Here's a nifty little quiz for all you that may have an interest. Please define the term "Coberst" in 25 words or less. I'm sure we are to garner some interesting offerings.

I think that Coberst asks interesting, but too wordy questions, that are ultimately unanswerable in the form of a single definitive answer.

Most of the questions are actually pretty good, if you're into that sort of stuff and enjoy potentially endless speculation, but they're not my cup of tea (bearing in mind that I don't like tea).

I'd like him a lot more if he hadn't called me a pervert. Or if he had a sense of humour:

But who's questions are they to begin with?

It seems you are a man who bears a grudge. There is really nothing wrong in being a pervert. I would take it as a compliment.

As for Coberst, I would say he is a man who hides behind a veneer of intellectuality. ie he uses intellect as a shield to hide his social ineptitude. Not that I've met the guy but this is my guess. I can usually sum up what he is trying to say in a sentence and then I'm on to something else. I guess I'm a bit hyperactive.

No, not a grudge. I have no grudges against anyone. I just thought it was worth pointing out if people wanted to discuss Cobert's posting style.

As you said, MIL, it takes all types to make the forum what it is.

Right now I am describing him as someone who thinks they are above everyone else intellectually because they can cobble together a post from a few books/articles and make some disjointed reasoning. Hence Coberst posts the same tripe all over the net in different forums.


Right now this arrogance the is getting on my t*ts.

What's amazing is how many other forums have had this very thread started up about Coberst.
And how many have bot/AI/other listed in their polls too.

Curious isn't it? If he's a bot, he's a very arrogant one!

No goal in mind; and none reached as of this writting.

I'm a little surprised that he does not have his own Wikipedia entry.
