"Weird bunch"? No, sir, it seems like it's you who is just another sheeple here! It is society that doesn't understand the geeks, and just can't fathom why Computer Science and Physics are much better and more important than those "liberal arts" like philosophy, history and sociology -- because it's much more important to understand computers than to understand people, you know! And it is society that refuses to understand that an oil lamp ejaculating is hilarious and highly intellectual, while criticising a webcomic is somehow absurd and horrifying. Society rejects the idea that lack of social skills is a virtue, and they don't see that if you can't properly communicate with people, it's because you're way too superior and unworthy of their attention. You have to be murdered.

I would be inclined to agree with you, except that our esteemed author did a Q&A type thing (I think during his book launch) where he mentioned being dismayed at a lot of people not getting 631, and I don't think the community ever came to a consensus as to what the hell 631's joke even was.
Ah, yes, I remember that. The main thing is, people may have not got the actual joke (and I have the feeling that someone will try to convince me that ONE person getting it right away means anything), but most people realised that, somehow, the joke had to do with displaying a graphic close-up drawing of a female breast and a vagina (without having anything remotely similar to a "NSFW" warning before), which is about as removed as it can be from the overall idea of a comic that has, at worst, displayed crude stick figure graphics, or a huge "FUCK. THIS. SHIT." written in bold capital letters.
I think, in that point, some people noticed that being "non-highbrow" and being "grossly unsubtle" are different things.
