ESR outside agitator, not leader

I take issue with the idea of describing ESR as a leader.
He's a commentator, and occasional agitator By his own definition, he's not a contributor, at least a regular contributor.
Leadership to me implies a willingness to deal with the details, and a commitment to take a long-term position within a community while working towards a common goal.
Drive-by postings on a development list don't count, at least to me.
