I think one reason for this might be your propensity for calling people "pant-hooting rationalist chimps". This kind of behavior does not usually win you any allies.

Pretty much everyone hoots in their pants once in a while. It's okay.

Sure. Most people also drool, masturbate, and watch television from time to time. That said, if I interpret "drooling, television-watching wanker" as a neutral description that probably does apply to any given person, I am doing a remarkable job of failing to attend to connotations.
