Seeing as the thread about the 'greatest philosopher' has involved many disgruntled views as to who exactly is 'great' I thought I would start a similair poll on the same topic - with a twist
who do you hate trying to read and make sense of?
who do you think is not all that they're cracked up to be?
who doesn't really make any sense?
who just really annoys you?
who got everything so wrong that you are surprised they are still even well known?
Who is so infuriating that they make you just want to punch a passer-by in the face?
Who makes you scream NO NO NO! instead of YES YES YES!
I have tried to pick from the 'usual suspects' of least liked Philosophers and I included Dawkins because he does deal with philosophical issues (even if he lacks the training, rigour and expertise to do so - he still persists nonetheless)

I voted for Derrida. Deliberately obscure ("Of Grammatology..." ), and part of that pretentious circle of French intellectuals who harped on about Postmodernism and deconstruction all the time >_>

Is there a difference between a philosophy and a fanatical [in this case] ideology?
Hmm, true. Wiki states that Philosophy is the discipline concerned with questions of how one should live and Ideology is stated as a collective of organized ideas. Although Hitler thought are a matter of Ideology, the collective is of philosophy of how the Germans should live. I guess its all a matter of opinion. To cut it with a thin line, you could say that it is Politically orientated Philosophical ideologies.
