This is the first time I've ever dealt with him head-on. For that
matter it's the most I've seen from him at one go.

I can understand someone becoming defensive about the things they like
and believe. But he needs to be a bit more rational. It makes no sense
to accuse others of things while ignoring the same thing done by
someone who does nothing more than toss around a little flattery.
Worse, when practically everyone tells you that a particular person is
a POS it's usually wiser to stand back and observe for a little bit
rather than taking up their defense right off. Especially when those
advising you are users of the item the group was formed to cover.
