Nerd culture is a fail because its rules and customs don't include communication, boundaries, personal responsibility. Instead you have trolls and flame wars and pointing out grammar errors, you have victim-blaming and buck-passing and passive aggression and DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA. Being a top dog in this system means you've mastered the art of some really psychologically fucked up = unhealthy modes of operation. Yet there are people that participate in the culture to some degree or another without being unhealthy - it's just that most of them learned to be healthy from somewhere outside the nerd culture, which would DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA at the very NOTION that there could be "healthy" and "unhealthy" social interactions, or that boundaries could be good or that their feelings belong to them.

Does this help with the how this works question? Do you have a specific example you'd like me to speculate on? Did I miss an important question?
