Rob doesn't realize how little he knows

The Dunning?Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than is accurate. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their ineptitude.[1] Actual competence may weaken self-confidence, as competent individuals may falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding.
Rob, please get help: Loudoun County Mental Health 703-771-5100  I am not a mental health professional. I am not qualified to diagnose or treat. Get help. What do you have to lose? Your current course is catastrophically unproductive.

Fixed that for you.

I think it's fair to say the fact that Bat$hit Crazy Rob "hocus" Bennett finds himself only able to blather endlessly about the Fables of Hocomania at his own Plop and a handful of other lightly-visited sites is one of the most welcome developments to occur over the long course of his Internet Trolling Career. Now he's free to be Crazy as a $hithouse Rat without disturbing those who have an interest in learning about personal finance. And those of us with an interest in psychology have the case study of a mentally ill individual conveniently available to us courtesy of the internet. It's a most elegant solution to the scourge of rampant, uncontrolled hocomania.  8-)

Yes, arrogant blowhard dovetails well with hocus' persona. But it's important to remember just how insignificant Rob is and how tiny is the audience for his Bat$hit Crazy Hocomania Routine. Outside of the few hocoresearcher's who follow him for cheap giggles, nobody is paying any attention to him. Rob seems to have carved out an annual token appearance for himself at FinCon but that seems more a case of someone in charge deeming it better to put up with a brief performance by Crazy Uncle Rob than to let him harp endlessly from the cheap seats that he's being persecuted.   :roll:
