Among other reasons, too bold, aggressive
Someone who says “Kripke’s naming is just Augustine on crack” shouldn’t try for the hemming and hedging of academia.

Someone who titles a paper “If I met the evil genius I’d buy him a beer” shouldn’t try and teach the balanced and measured introduction classes.

Someone who wants to work in bold juxtapositions, running together unconnected fields and random questions and watching them work off each other, should probably make it a case of private study.
