Techies are people, people make mistakes, thus techies make mistakes. Alas, when the techies are assholes, the assholery would be phenomenally triggering.
It's okay to be a techie, just don't be an asshole.
An incomplete list of possible techie issues:
- tendency to assume people you're not familiar with know less about [insert-tech-here] than you.
- tendency to think there's a holy purpose to involve in (often nearly pointless) argument about tech.
- tendency to think it's perfectly okay to be an asshole with the "didn't read don't care" attitude.
- tendency of cargo-cult.
- tendency to circle-jerk
- tendency of not touching enough grass.
