One thing I've never understood about Slashdot...

Anybody from any of the soft sciences is almost violently dismissed. Very especially if they try to say anything about 'hacker culture' or 'nerd culture'.

I don't actually understand this. Why are people there so violently opposed to the idea that there is a community and culture to geek-dom. I mean, Slashdot is almost proof positive that they're wrong?
