Well, for all that, perhaps Nietzsche was a crank. It needn't be solely a derogatory term.

Because if a term applies to Nietzsche, it can't be derogatory? Surely, there are some derogatory terms that apply to Nietzsche. Nobody's perfect.

Surely being wrong should be part of the criteria for being a crank? Gardner's criteria as stated come surprisingly close to applying to one of the best scientists I know. But he's not a crank, just an asshole.
