I think people in EA should give up on trying not to seem cultish and just go full-blown weird.

Anonymous #33's comment makes me angry. I am trying to build a tribe that I can live in while we work on the future; please stop trying to kick people in the face for being normal whenever they get near us.

There are versions of this I endorse, and versions I don't endorse. Anon #38 seems to be interpreting #33 as saying 'let's be less tolerant of normal people/behaviors', but my initial interpretation of #33 was that they were saying 'let's be more tolerant of weird people/behaviors'.
