You know, JimF is like the schoolmarm of the Bloggernacle, when he isn't wagging his finger at non-permabores*, telling them to behave themselves and be more polite and sensitive*, he is back-handedly praising people with such kind and tenderloving equivocal insults that they take it as though it were praise. Not many people are sophisticated and diplomatic enough to pull something like that off. Now, granted, most people would consider something like that disingenuous, but JimF crafts his words so carefully that you would look like a dolt even suggesting such a thing. How skillful!

Alas, if he would only turn his rapier-like wit to his fellow permabores, who are by turns every bit as rude, obnoxious, pretentious, contrary, un-PC and unlikely to apologize as anyone else JimF is so fond of complimentarily criticizing. But, that will never happen, since being esconsed within the ivory towers of Academe, one learns very quickly to never bite the hand that holds tenure from you. But, hey, all those non-impeachable offenses aside, I am glad JimF is part of the Church and the Bloggernacle, because Sun-Tzu was right.

This is exactly the kind of patronage the permabores expect. They think they are more equal than the rest of the Bloggernacle. Oh, no, don't you dare!

Nobody is exempt from snarking. We are equal opportunity offenders. You play on the Nacle, you are in the crosshairs.
