I would agree with that, but you need prior local knowlege to get the full
meaning of the original comment.

I might go for that, were his posts not so pathetic.

He will never be anything but Powaqqatsi Man to me, when I can be bothered to
think of it at all.

Powaqqatsi: (po.waq.kahtsee) N. from the Hopi language.
1. sorcerer life, an entity, a way of life that consumes
the life forces of other beings in order to further its
own life.

His life itself is koyaanisqatsi.

Koyaanisqatsi: (ko.yaa.nis.kahtsee) N. from the Hopi
language.
1. crazy life. 2. life in turmoil. 3. life disintegrating.
4. life out of balance. 5. a state of life that calls for
another way of living.

All are appropriate, especially numbers 3 and 4; number 5 would apply in every
conceivable way.
