Fraudulent and Twisted

“Amateurs are often wrong, crazy, fraudulent, or twisted. There is typically a pomposity among amateurs that, well, one just has to get used to. They are often nerds, if younger; cranks, if slightly mature; eccentric, if aged; and–it should be said–at just about any age they can be total jackasses.”
