Hi there Bloggernacle,

The people over at BCC have succesfully baited Kaimi into making a fool of himself, so there really isn't any point in anyone here even bothering with that. Other than point out to Kaimi that nobody here ever called you a "bastard", ever. So we have no idea what you are talking about there, other than trying to exagerate the offense to make it sound like we are worse than we are, just like your pals did yesterday.

We have told the Bloggernacle a number of times that the SnarkerNacle is a team effort. It still is a team effort. Kurt has outed himself because T&S was trying to blackmail him, but the rest of the people are not going to. And you know what? We aren't going to expose any of our sources either, and we have lots of them. There are a lot of people who are very active in the Nacle who send us snarks, snarks which get posted under the title "Snarker/Snarkette" because these people have something snarky to say and don't want the credit.

Why don't they want the credit? Because of what you saw on yesterday's post and on the post at BCC. T&S Julie acts all like a total shrill prima donna on M0 and gets called on it, and the T&S attack dogs twist it all around into an attack on her kids and family (which never happened) and then shovel truckloads of idiotic threats and demands for butt kissing. And, because of all the stupid nonsense Kaimi pulled, trying to get the Bloggernacle to boycott SnarkerNacle. It is this kind of behavior that makes people fear to say what they are thinking, so those people send it to us and we post it. And guess what? There are a lot of people out there who submit stuff who want to remain anonymous. Some submit ideas, and some submit complete snarks we cut and paste directly without editing, adding only links and maybe a pic.

So, the reality is, there are a lot of people in the Nacle, more than you would think, who submit material to us and have beefs they want to air. If you think we are obsessed with T&S, you are sadly mistaken. Only about half of the T&S related posts are from members of the Team SnarkerNacle, the rest are submissions we receive from average Naclers.

And, for the rest of you who think we aren't funny anymore, all I can say is submit something that you think is funny and we will put it up and give you credit if you want it.

One last thing. We here at SnarkerNacle have a 100% take down rate when it comes to offended persons approaching us in private via the e-mail address by intelligently explaining their position and why they are offended. Not once have failed to remove a post that offended the person in question who contacted us privately. Not once. Got it? And this has happened several times. Whenever people contact us privately, we always listen to them, take their view into account, and take corrective measures. Always. So, you idiots, and I do mean idiots, at T&S have a 100% failure rate at approaching us privately about posts that offend you. Instead, you wage a war. And you get what you deserve. You lie, distort and try to use your influence in the Bloggernacle to silence those who oppose you and promote those who kiss your butts (take Blogger of Jared for example). Well, you can forget it Kaimi, Frank, Nate. We here at SN will never, ever kiss your butts, no matter how many times you threaten to out us.

Finally, someone in the BCC thread asked about MSTP t-shirts, you can get them here.

Feel free to back up the dump truck and unload in the comments.

I must express my absolute SHOCK that the permabores who responded to the BCC post said that they didn't feel the Snarkernacle was useful. I take that as overwhelming evidence that, in fact, this blog serves a very valuable purpose. Oh, and by the way, there are plenty of well-educated, intellectual people who find T&S horribly pretentious, so let's drop this garbage about how above-average all of the permabores are. True intellectuals are way more secure than most of the T&S folks are.

Kurt is team of team SN. Team SN threatened to ban Kurt in an earlier thread.

That's snarkworthy in and of itself, and if I thought they would post it, I'd write it up and send it in, "On the difficulties of running a blog if you ban yourself."

speaking of kaimi's accusation of 'bastard' insults, i think it may have been from the 'T&Stards' comment. When I read it, i thought it could be an insult based on 'bastard' or 'retard,' and concluded that it was probably 'retard' because the word 'tard' had already been used once in the post ('tard' being used for re-tard more commonly than bas-tard, i assumed). so, anyway, that's maybe where kaimi got that idea. (btw, neither insult is very PC; please don't use the n-word or i may stop reading, fwiw)

oh, btw, the 'comment' i referred to above was in the julie thread; a comment by snarker...

As both someone who has been snarked and has submitted snarks, (*gasp*) I have to say that while team SN's efforts are sometimes less than perfect in their execution, they are also sometimes a hoot. It's like any blog, of any style. Some entries are home runs, and some fall flat. Given the direct object of each post, sometimes feelings get bruised. As they point out in this post, though, they are quick to respond when someone does not take it well.

I, myself, have asked to have a snark that they did of me removed. Not only was the post removed, but a really kind apology was put up in its stead. I have to say, though, that the snark that I asked to be removed, from a snarking standpoint, was dead on. I asked to have it removed because I was horrified with *myself* for what I had most snarkworthily written.

So, when it's a little much, just speak up. Say so. They do listen. It only gets ugly when back-and-forth battles get going. (Honestly, the snarker pack usually comes out on top in those; the various big blog bloggers who continue the arguments usually just come off looking lame and like they're scrambling to save face in light of knowing that SN was right)

So, team SN, I say keep at it. Not that the 'nacle could thumbs down you out of existence anyway. The joys of a personal publishing platform, eh?

People who make so much of themselves usually do so artificially. When anyone picks at their facade, it can really get to them. (Think: the bigger they seem the thinner the skin--like a balloon.**) Those who overreact to snarks, should perhaps take a look at themselves, get it in perspective, and maybe use it as a chance to grow.

[**Hahaha, that's where all the hot air must come from. Lest I get attacked for saying that, it is not aimed at anyone in particular, honestly.]

Love it. T&S is so ____ing gay. Just a bunch of ____ing preppies. No way anyone them would have survived public school.

I was pretty sure Kurt was part of this, but he gave the written equivalent of a shrug when I inquired once.

Love all you guys, whoever you all are.

Aaron Brown said... @ May 19, 2006 at 2:53 PM

Oh, please. Like you aren't intimately involved in this site, Steve EM.

Anonymous #2,

If I thought you would write it, I would post it.

Aaron Brown,

Steve EM has never been involved, either directly or indirectly, with this site. He has never even submitted a snark to my knowledge or memory, but I am not going to go back and comb through the 400+ e-mails to check to be sure. He isn't Shizzle or Dazzle either.

That's right, snarkette, deny! deny! deny!

Anonymous said... @ May 19, 2006 at 3:34 PM

I think Ronan was probably right that most of the issues would be resolved if Kurt would turn off comments. The posts are hit and miss-- a few are offensive but many are not. On the other hand, when Kurt gets going in the comments, he really sort of gets nuts.

Anonymous said... @ May 19, 2006 at 3:44 PM

Is extreme dorito another name for Kurt?

Steve EM said... @ May 19, 2006 at 3:54 PM

Snarkette absolutely speaks the truth. While a frequent source of entertainment to many here, I have never been directly involved nor voluntarily contributed anything here. And given my views, openness and style of commenting throughout the nacle, isn’t it self evident the snark team is far gentler and clean spoken than I would/could ever be. I'm a native New Yorker dammit! Snarkette even called me once on my misspelling eunuchville, I mean enochville.

Frank McIntyre said... @ May 19, 2006 at 4:20 PM

"Kurt has outed himself because T&S was trying to blackmail him,"

Let me just jump in to say I think this is wrong. I don't know of anybody at T&S making such an attempt, nor do I find it likely that they would, 'cuz it would be weird.

Kurt, I'd be very interested to know how you got this impression.

Anonymous said... @ May 19, 2006 at 4:21 PM

I think that this site has frequently crossed the line between funny and jerky. I am glad to hear that you take down offensive posts if someone emails you.

Perhaps you should put this policy somewhere on the site so that people can know how to deal with problems that they have with you rather than trying to guess your secret-test-for-properly-expressing-offence-before-you-will-make-reparations.

Policies? We don't need no stinkin' policies!!

I like tortillas, too. I like them when I warm, get them really hot, actually, and smother them in butter. which is why my cholesterol is high.

I don't see the problem.

I think it's remarkably multiple personality of Kaimi to argue with himself like this. I think I'll go say that on BCC.

Snarkimus Prime said... @ May 19, 2006 at 7:56 PM

Frank, with respect to the threat of blackmailing, go read the comments on yesterdays post. One of the anonymous ones by "snarky's other biggest fan" threatens that Kurt will be outed if he does not kiss Frank's butt. Its about halfway down, and it also amusingly attributes the outing of Banner of Heaven to you, which is absurd, since Kurt was one of the original three to spearhead their overthrow. How is that not a threat? Its kiss Frank's butt or be outed, especially when the T&S sycophants making comments are linking to Kurt's web page and Nate is making not so veiled references to Kurt in the original comment.

Snarky's other biggest fan said... @ May 19, 2006 at 8:29 PM

There is no T&S conspiracy to blackmail Kurt, really. You were just taking the mickey out of Frank, and I thought he was the one who exposed Banner of Heaven, and I just really like to say the word pucker.

I like tortillas, too.

I think this blog is the worst part of the "bloggernacle." I cannot believe the consciences of those who run this slamfest do not burn every Sunday when partaking of the sacrament.

All of you ought to be disciplined by the Church for unchristlike behavior. This blog is really, really low.

Anonymous said... @ May 20, 2006 at 10:44 AM

Careful avngr,

If the Church actually starts to notice the bloggernacle at all, they may feel itchy to do a bit more than "fix the snarkernacle."

Geez, I leave the Bloggernacle for a weekend and we get slammed.

Not that it was an undeserved slam.. actually I don't know if it was or not. Apparently we have been kissing T&S butt?

Either way, I don't really know enough about who's who in the 'nacle to know which people we have succeeded in impressing by this alleged butt-kissing. If you could fill me in, that would be rad. Then maybe I could find a way for us to capitalize on it somehow.

Thanks for the memories SN
