Perhaps even more telling:

I've never found Larry's much denigrated posts to be as out of bounds
as they are commonly described --- only his choices wrt software
licensing and business practices and the philosophical justifications

ultimate frisbee.  Oddly enough, we're all stuck in the same arena.

Go figure.
