Creepy Geeks In Popular Culture

For a personal project of mine I’d like  to make a list of all the negative portrayals of geeks in media, particularly creepy stalkerish ones. You know, the guy who never leaves his basement, has a massive computer monitor with a giant porn folder always open and a bottle of Vaseline and box of tissues right there, along with a desktop background of a pretty female classmate. Any suggestions? I know I’ve seen this portrayal before, can anyone think up any examples?

I’m pretty sure a Penny Arcade comic had a character like this once.

I also remember an anime or cartoon with a (cleaner) version of this character.

Thanks for your help, until next time, Stay Geeky.
