There was an old school thought leader who jumped into an oss project we were on. He would post long threads to the mailing list recommending full refactors based purely on pseudo code.

He would derail conversations and set back contributors for months. He would go to conferences and spread his idea. Get people all worked up that this was the true way. But he never actually tried to ship code using his ideas. Eventually he faded away.
