DKL is a conspiratorialist. Whooda thought it? He seemed to me more like the type to read obscure books about Kafka than hatch wacky plots about people out to get him, especially when it comes to throwing us Snarkers into the pot. Anyway, enough philosophizing, on to the snarking. The current rankings have been updated over on LDSdefect, the "u configr it" link page by MoronMentality. But, if you click on that link now, its missing a little something that was there on Sunday, as follows:
- Moreover, some of the data might be considered evidence of collusion among registered users to bias the results. For example, the MA blogs and the Snarkernackle all had exactly the same number of placements in the "Blogs One" category. I haven't ventured to pry into the data further to discover who placed it where (nor will I), and I offer no hypothesis. Even so, it is an interesting coincidence. Fortunately, there are enough results to somewhat dilute such efforts."
So, um, Dastardly Dave, did you pry into the data further and discover an error in your script that tabulates values, or something like that, and discover this "interesting coincidence" was in fact a load of rubbish? DD, come on, like anyone in the Moarch gives a toot about you and your silly notions of grandeur. Yep, you caught us DD, we here at the Snarkernacle were actively recruiting Indian and Chinese college students (whom we paid in EverQuest gold pieces) to promote us and the Moarch all into box 1 because LDSdefect is such a terrible threat to us that we have nothing better to do than conspire against you and scheme and plot to overthow your brilliant efforts which threaten our very existence. But, alas, the thousands of mercenary college students we hired couldn't swamp the dozens of registered users, and our efforts at resurrecting the Gadianton Robbers has failed...sniff...sniff...wah!
We cannot speak for the Moarch, but there is no doubt in our minds here that if the SN were ever promoted to box 1 by the Nacle community you would not put us there, so like we ever even bother trying, or anyone else for that matter. (But, hey, maybe we shouldn't be so hard on old DLK/MPJ since he did even kick his own wunderkind Blather of Heathens to the curb when it got demoted instead of elevating it to box 1--maybe he isn't that vain after all).
