The clique that has overwhelmed METAR tends to have very high opinions of themselves. They post many long, meandering posts to rationalize their beliefs. They post data, but it is almost always anecdotal (as in this post). They often reference their own previous posts to justify their current posts and to claim they had great insights long ago. They even have a tendency to refer to themselves in the third person. Despite the massive circle jerk recc'ing that goes on over there, they never seem to be right about any economic development.And they want a Feste Award winner every year.
