What I don't get about anything of this is that I have always found
Linus' being hyper-obviously over the top sarcastic when he goes on a
rant. There is usually plenty of context to derive that from, too, even
if you haven't seen him in person enough to virtually hear the smirk in
his voice. This is a form of humor more than anything else, and at
least I find it utterly impossible to be offended by it. As the main
target of the rant this weekend, I (a) chuckled, and (b) said "I think I
need to do some damage control".
