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.
