An interesting paper.

Those of us who have been following these internet boards for the last few years have had the opportunity to observe this process happening. Gradually we have seen one person change from someone who appeared to want to help others, and to share what knowledge he had, into a narcissist craving adoration. He has changed from someone who was prepared to respect diffent viewpoints into someone who flies into childish little tantrums if someone even slightly challenges something he has said.

We can only hope that he will have the honesty to face up to what is happening, but I doubt if that will occur for some time yet. Perhaps when enough people have woken up to his real nature he will finally stop to look at himself. It is a great pity that so many of his followers are too cowardly to admit to what has happened.
