Rym & Scott: Jerks, or regional variation? :)
Rym & Scott are quite opinionated.
After listening to many of their shows, I've gotten the impression that they have little tolerance for many types of people, although usually they will explain their lack of patience with fun anecdotes and interesting podcast bits. They also seem to have a fondness for rants, and an intense dislike for Other People's Problems.
Taken as a whole, they often come off sounding like jerks to my ears.
However, they are from New York, which stereotypes and the media have lead me to believe is a somewhat harsh place which requires a somewhat harsh personality if one wants to avoid getting dragged down. They are also doing a show, which is always more interesting when people are opinionated. Lastly, they are geeks, which historically have been known for having less than perfect scores in Skills: Diplomacy. (Class penalty, you know. :P)
What say you, forums?
With any luck, this will become as popular as my other favorite flamewar thread, "Why People Think Rym & Scott are Gay."
