If you want to be offended by it, I cannot stop that. I apologize if you are offended. I found your post enlightening, but nonetheless filled with useless trivia. 'Nerdy,' so to speak.
I consider 'Nerd' to be a term of endearment. One who enjoys the pursuit of knowledge with disregard to the opinions of others. I would consider myself a self-identified Nerd. I guess if you knew that, my name calling would not be as offensive.
