It is when he's a full-blown, well-known crank, and what he is producing
does nothing useful and never has.  No one in any industry is impressed
or finds any value in what he's doing, yet fellow amateurs seem to be
impressed with his "AI" that doesn't do anything.

What's depressing is that people can't recognize the obviously deranged
ramblings of a crank when they see it.
