non sequitry (n.) non sek•qui•tree ─ an illness characterized by the compulsion to make someone else look stupid accompanied by the repeated failure to do so and escalating acts of self-denigration. This disease may be acute (immediate and usually of a short duration) or chronic (a persistent and lasting disease, or one that has developed slowly). While evident in all public forums, non sequitry is particularly vibrant in the blogspace.

MARK KLEIN, M.D., the infamous commenter on the NYTimes.com blogs, has a chronic case of non sequitry.
