The elite clique of Nacle aristocrats that run the Moarch has finally decided to kick the SnarkerNacle off the Mormon Archipelago. Ah, well, that is just the way it goes. It was a long time in coming, and frankly, we are surprised it took as long as it did. Alas, gentle reader, please do not e-mail GeoffJ and bug him about it, he has better things to do with his time, and it isn't his fault we got kicked.

We never asked the Moarch to list us, we were surprised months ago when we did get listed, and we knew it wouldn't last. And, now that we are no longer listed, the Moarch has lost its only influence over us, namely GeoffJ, who tirelessly encouraged us to be more careful and more sensitive and repeatedly got us to edit our content to tone it down in the interest of the greater good. But, you can forget about all that now. Snarkette is in da haus, and she will be taking no prisoners.

What happened, you ask? Well, it was probably a combination of two of yesterday's posts, the FMH post and the Oman post. You see, the gurly grrls at FMH hate the Snarker (most of the time anyway, they like it when TMILisa gets to emasculate Adam Greenwood, but hate it whenever we point out they aren't really feminists and love to drive up hits with salacious topics, and despite TMILisa's insistence she doesn't read us, well, that just isn't true) and the Omans hate the Snarker (because we point out they are pretentious hypocrites who cast aspersions but must never be criticized for it). And both groups have friends in the Moarch aristocracy, so they complain to the aristocracy and the aristocracy takes action. The only action of which is to shuffle us around into our own box down at the bottom, and then to kick us off entirely. Which action is totally ineffective at accomplishing anything, other than appeasing the anger of the gurls at FMH and the wrath of the Omans. We got our readership without the Moarch, and will continue on just fine without it.

So, again, gentle readers, please don't bother GeoffJ about it. Its not his doing or his responsibility. He was stuck doing the thankless and time consuming job of being middle-man between the Moarch aristocracy and the Snarkers, trying to make both sides happy. Which job was pretty much impossible, given the nature of the two parties.

And so it goes, Mormon blogging continues to be an ego-driven circus of conceit and the SnarkerNacle continues to point that fact out.

who wants to be in a stupid clique anyway? church members should know better than that! plus, isn't the whole thing a bit too high school?

and you are right, most people who visit here probably don't get here from that place anyway. ;)

Welcome to the club Snarkey.

I knew about the two heavens, one for the Southern Baptists and one for the rest of us. But I guess there's a third one for uptight Mormon BKP wannabes.

These are the same people who whined about Snarker linking to the public ICANN/WHOIS directory of contact information for internet domain names calling it a "violation of privacy".

As they say back east, Whuddeva!

I'm just excited to be a member of an aristocracy. Now if I could just get some peasants.

I wish I knew who you were so if you were my friend, I wouldn't be mean, but if I didn't like you, which there is only person I felt that way about, and I don't think he had a sense of humor, so you must be one of my friends.

Anyway, I don't see the Omans as you do. I just don't, never have.

Amen, Mark, I'm pretty conceited now.

Yep. Well, I prefer the snarkernacle to most of the blogs out there anyway. Why is it some people can't take criticism? I for one am glad you are out here :)

I think I know you. Are you my Elder's Quorum President?

You guys do realize you're talking to a smurf who has replaced a retired chihuahua. Right?

P.S. I have it on good authority that this blog is actually being run by Grumpy Smurf in drag, not smurfette.

John C.! All your presents are belong to us.

Oh wait, you said PEASANTS.

Would some ant-infested peas do?


Oh, anyone peeved at the smurf, I mean snarker, could always grab a t-shirt from the men's section at Target. It's Smurf-blue, and says, If you choke a smurf, what color does it turn?

Hee. Not that I'm peeved at the snarker, just thought some might want to wear their feelings on their sleeve, so to speak. Er, chest. Hee.

I tried to buy one a month ago (for un-snarker related reasons!) but the men's shirts aren't designed for hips.

Sorry John C, only Aaron Cox gets peasants, i.e. those who proudly display his t-shirt. Maybe if you sell shirts with pictures of you on it you could pull it off.
