I'll admit that I thought for a moment that Can E. Acar was a pseudonymous troll, but a bit of googling revealed that he's been active in Turkish BSD circles for years.
(I wonder how much of this is culture clash? I have quite a few Turkish friends, and I've noticed they have a propensity towards argument-as-sport, including making enormous rhetorical flourishes for the sake of spurring on a good argument. I have this tendency too, so we get on quite well... but if you're not expecting it and think they're stating things they actually believe rather than playing perpetual devil's advocate, you can get thoroughly confused and annoyed.)
