Bullying usually requires a victim. I have yet to see one.

To be fair, Atlas's content-to-crazy ratio is shockingly low.
It is. But it is a pointless waste of time calling him out every time. If 95% of your posts are bashing someone, even if he actually is crazy, it's a case of bullying. Conspiracy theories aside, that's what I consider a malignant agenda.
Personally I just don't see the bullying angle.  Is Atlas somehow being coerced by these posts?  If so, coerced to do what? It doesn't appear to make him less pretentious, ignorant, cowardly or deceitful?

Besides Atlas is a full  I'm sure he knows that being less of those things I mentioned would probably garner him less heckling so he has made an informed choice to take this rather than conform to various social mores (I'd wager that in his mind he interprets their rejection as a rejection of his beliefs rather than his personality).  Simply saying "Hey you know what JeffK, et al.  - I have been a dick of massive proportions (and not in a good porn-star way)." would probably get him considerable slack.

In retrospect, I'd even figure on some level he enjoys and encourages this behavior.  Sometimes if you think you're in the right you can feel pretty good about persecution (just ask the apostle Paul however they would probably have wildly different ideas as what qualifies as "persecution").  Also it's way easier to preserve ones ideas if you can dismiss people for some other reason.

Anyway a lot of people grow out of this.

I'm rather good with Linux.  If you're having problems with your mining rig I'll help you out remotely for 0.05.  You can also propose a flat-rate for some particular task.  PM me for details.
