A minor correction [In reply to] Can't Post

My original point was that society seems to expect geeks to be reclusive, and so, portrayed the owner of this house as such.

Poor choice of words, in my opinion. I also apologize for any confusion.

Without being reclusive. Given the amount of information and access the owner was willing to provide, reclusive was an odd term to me as well.

However, I think that many would be introverted about such a passion driven project, given how sometimes passion projects can be regarded by the public.

...it's unfortunate, imo, HGTV went with the term 'reclusive.' I much enjoyed the YouTube link Glassary provided; the owner seems pleasant and sociable. Can't knock his passion.

Perhaps 'introvert' would be a more accurate term? Oh well, regardless of the connotations associated with either term, a snappy title is all about garnering clicks!

PS, this story was one of the more enjoyable ads in my Facebook feed this evening.Smile
