Over on a BCC thread, Dastardly Dave has revealed why he created LDSelect, so he can help out all the little people who have been ignored by the Mormon Archipelago. Little guys like Trap, No Trap, who spew more vitriol and profanity than a drunken sailor.

Too many ‘naclers are concerned with power and recognition and self-promotion–that’s why concern about “community” is only ever expressed by those who fancy themselves to be its shepherds or overseers or leaders. It’s not those who adopt non-conformist accents (like me) who get ignored. It’s those that are deemed unimportant who can’t get the time of day from the self-styled overseers.

DKL shoots off his mouth, and Rusty and GeoffJ take him to task. Note the way DKL feigns innocence while casting aspersions about Rusty's life being humdrum. How pleasant. Well, yes, DKL's fast-paced life of writing zippy web pages and bashing people on the Nacle and posing as a married mother of two (something he takes great pride in and preens over, even now when everyone but him recognizes his hubris) whom he set up and then attacks as himself is pretty dashing, exciting, cosmopolitan and envy-inducing.

Dastardly Dave picks at motes in other's eyes all the while hypocritically setting himself up as the Nacle's New Shepherd and Overseer and Leader. All Hail DKL, righteous overlord zealot of inclusivity and impartiality!

Lets see how long it takes for the post-mo, ex-mo and anti-mo crowd to take over LDSelect and swamp it.

Hmm, I've just learned some things. There is always something useful hidden in the snark, which is amazing.

I guess I should pretend that I don't read your posts, but hidden inside of many of them is something valuable or a link to something worth knowing or reflecting on.

Stephen, you are the original SnarkerNacle groupie. What do you mean you should pretend you don't read us?

Well, sometimes I think I should hide the fact ;)

Well personally I prefer Planet LDS because it has no rank system at all and includes almost all LDS blogs, not just those deemed worthy by the so called "Bloggernacle".

I get lost at Planet LDS -- especially since it overrides the browser defaults and never marks a link as visited.

I'd like that single change to be made there, it would make the site a lot more useful.
