Why must you tarnish your good ideas with malice?

Because he's an extremely verbose contrarian, and this site often strays a little too close to groupthink for his liking.

I used to feel much the same way when I knew him only online - Mahesh's long posts often stray far from the topic at hand, and he isn't always nice about it. Having met him in person, though, it all makes a lot more sense. Can't say that I always agree, but he offers refreshing and well-researched opinions, and that's important on a site like this. Otherwise it would be far too easy to lapse into the groupthink of which he speaks.

I'd encourage anyone who has doubts to at least meet him in person before you make up your mind. The guy's a walking library, and whatever you may think of his opinions, he's always great company for a cup of coffee.
