My take:

Rocknut is a knowledgeable, opinionated, smart (and smart-alecky), stubborn, arrogant, occasionally funny guy. More often than not, he rubs me the wrong way, even when he has something very valuable to contribute to the discussion. Why? Because he is almost always condescending to others. When called on it, he invariably blames the other person (too sensitive, too American, not internet-savvy enough, unable to detect sarcasm, etc.)

His supporters are either those who have met him and can testify to his basic goodness or those who really thrive on sarcasm themselves.

My guess is that for every vocal supporter of rocknut who will stand up for him on this forum, there are many, many more who are agree he has burned up enough good will.

As for the endless spin cycle of what standards Andrew can or can't set as webmaster, he can do whatever he wants. If a restaurant manager/owner asks a belligerent customer to leave because it's ruining the environment for other patrons, that's his right. If that customer's buddies disagree with that decision, they can vote by not frequenting that establishment anymore. I'd say it's even more the webmaster's call when most of the customers are enjoying all the "perks" of the place with very little financial outlay.
