So I think I figured out what is wrong with whr. He seems to have Asperger's Syndrome.
Here is the description of some of the symptoms:
Abnormalities include verbosity, abrupt transitions, literal interpretations and miscomprehension of nuance, use of metaphor meaningful only to the speaker, auditory perception deficits
, unusually pedantic, formal
speech, and oddities in loudness, pitch
, and rhythm.[
Three aspects of communication patterns are of clinical interest: poor prosody, tangential and circumstantial speech, and marked verbosity. Although inflection
and intonation may be less rigid or monotonic than in autism, people with AS often have a limited range of intonation: speech may be unusually fast, jerky or loud. Speech may convey a sense of incoherence
; the conversational style often includes monologues about topics that bore the listener, fails to provide context
for comments, or fails to suppress internal thoughts. Individuals with AS may fail to monitor whether the listener is interested or engaged in the conversation. The speaker's conclusion or point may never be made, and attempts by the listener to elaborate on the speech's content or logic, or to shift to related topics, are often unsuccessful.[
Sounds like him, doesn't it?
The "use of metaphor meaningful only to the speaker" really hit home for me. He seems to do this alot: Troll, Mel Gibson, always accusing the other posters of being from Chelsea, Dorchester, etc.
