Perelman symptom

The story of Perelman is so dramatic that even non-researchers can enjoy. Researchers can find their favorite part for it, then say that Perelman is so and so. For example, I like to see his complain about the ethical problems (cf. the poster below), Stephen Downes says you do not need to go through peer-reviewed publishing process, and Daniel Lemire says journals are really old shits.

Well, we are not Perelman. What he can do is not what we can do. Citing Perelman does not make us look better.
