Don't unexclude anyone over thirty ...

Today I'd like to bring a fine quote to your attention, from a John Dvorak column in which he exhorts Academia (Sociology and Psychology, really) to start studying the internet before it's too late. In the column, "Academics: get to Work!" he says:
"When I was young we had this concept that you should never trust anyone over 30. Nowadays the new social mechanisms employed by teens and 20-somethings are so unfathomable to anyone over 30 that it's not a matter of not trusting anyone over 30 anymore. Anyone over 30 is excuded by default."

Well: if that were a really fine quote, I guess it would be a bit easier to read. Oscar Wilde, where are you?
