:-) I still think you overestimate his power to lead astray and underestimate your own and the Monastery's to show the Way.
The power of your own Good Answer, let alone one each from half a dozen monks, to counteract one of his signal-free or even misleading ones.
"frequently gave advice that would get one fired or hacked"
But who would follow such advice? I also think you underestimate the BS-detector skills on the part of seekers. You'd have to be really lacking in ability to evaluate the worth of on-line posts in general if you were to conclude that any one of Sunny D's wordy, say-nothing posts was to be heeded ahead of the accompanying ones full of clarity, detail, links, etc. -- even if you were on day One of a community college "coding" class. I've seen people thank Sunny D for making them look at the problem another way, but I don't think I can remember anyone rushing out to implement his suggested approach: when has he ever posted one clear enough to follow?!
What I have always objected to is the stuff that goes past pointing out a specific flaw or error in what he posted and goes into what an idiot he is, how bad his nodes' reps are, how he's never demonstrated working code, etc. I think that is piling on a senile old man who doesn't make sense anyway and I would get right up in the grille of anyone I saw doing it IRL too.
The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
