I don't really know the issues or personalities involved in John Scazi's rant about the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. I do, however, find his description of one of the people most damning:
[H]e’s the sort of person who is under the impression that passive-aggressive lashing out can be hidden or mitigated with a smiley-face emoticon at the end of a sentence.

As a bonus, it turns some thing I've been describing as "unskilled and unaware of it" actually has a name, it's the Dunning-Kruger effect. I shall be shamelessly dropping this at any available opportunity in the future.
