In response to marco0863's comment:
...That is done by a geek...
/gik/ Show Spelled [geek]Slang.
1. a digital-technology expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but often used disparagingly by others).
2. a person who has excessive enthusiasm for and some expertise about a specialized subject or activity: a foreign-film geek.
3. a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual.
4. a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts, as biting off the head of a live chicken.
According to Dictionary.com these are the defintions of the word - geek.
Which one applies to Fletcher1 in your book marco0863?
1.? Maybe, but this seems like a good thing these days...
2.? Being called an expert in something is not so hurtful or insulting...
3.? Possibly, he does seem overly intellectual...in his own mind, of course.
4.? Not likely, this seems more of a description of that evil skating clown that is Shuperman's avatar.
Stanjon, feel free to chime in here too.
