And the bigger they get, the more sycophants they gather around them.
Which leads to a bigger ego.
And while for some, this doesn't lead to a general increase in jerkoff behavior, one should always watchout for that.
Something happened recently in a group of which I am a part, that put a distinctive sour taste in my mouth. It's happened before, it'll probably happen again.
Context is everything. Had it been given context, I might not have had this reaction. Had it been done a little more politely, with an understanding that no matter WHAT we claim, we are 21st Century People, and this is a hobby, then I would have had absolutely no problem. But it came without context, a shot out of nowhere.
Mostly, it makes me sad because it cast a poor reflection on the whole group, from the top down.
