Over at BCC, they talked about how things have changed in the Bloggernacle over the past couple of years. People danced around why it isn't all that great, but nobody came out and said "The Bloggernacle is a Steaming Pile of Crap". And, sure, after awhile that turns into a compost pile, which can be useful fertilizer, but in reality, its still a big pile of rotting poo.

The comments in that very thread served to show why the Bloggernacle is a pile of crap:

1) A relatively small number of Nacle "elite" dominate the conversation.

2) DKL, and other prominent self-promoters, troll big threads and turn everything into an egomaniacal diatribe.

3) Real substance is scarce, most of it is just a lot of opinions.

So, what else people? Tell the Bloggernacle elite why the Bloggernacle sucks. The elite pretend they don't read the SnarkerNacle, but we all know they do. Tell them what you really think, free of threat of retribution. But, please do keep it profanity and obscenity free, as we wouldn't want Kaimi to be offended by any of you potty mouths out there.

I suppose the snarkernacle is what turns the manure pit over from time to time so it can properly compost?

I prefer the bloggernacle of yesteryear, probably because it was smaller... Or maybe I just have a distorted memory.

Snarky, hate to differ wid ya ... but overall I _like_ the Bloggernacle. So I wouldn't refer to it as a steaming pile of ...

I think the bloggernackle is largely a loose collection of Mormons who have too much time on their hands. It is governed by a set of cliques, which are self-promoting and self-sustaining through sycophancy. Most of the content is recycled drivel. The only thing that keeps it fresh is new people who have been around less than a year or two.

Kurt started the decline of the bloggernacle with this site.

If I were Kurt's bishop, he would be facing a church court for conduct unbecoming a disciple of Christ.

Kurt is uncompassionate, unfeeling, and rude. When he was the snarker, he did not care who his biting sarcasm hurt or what impact it had on the lives of those so "snarked". I don't know how he (and his minions) can possibly, in good conscience, take the sacrament each week and renew their covenants to take upon them the name of Christ.

President Hinckley once said that no one in their right mind would ever aspire to ecclesiastical office. From that statement we can make an educated assessment of Anonymous' mental state.

Minions rock! Do we get Bling?

Support the decline and fall of the Bloggernacle: read your scriptures instead.

"If I were Kurt's bishop, he would be facing a church court for conduct unbecoming a disciple of Christ." If that author was a bishop and I was that fake bishop's fake stake sresident, I would hold a church court charging the fake bishop with holding church courts for no good reason. So nanny nanny boo boo.

What I find most annoying is that a lot of these bloggernacle hacks spend tons of time talking about issues that actual scholars have been dealing with for years, yet the bloggers act like they have discovered something new. It is actually embarassing how little most of these "intellectuals" (read lawyers) know about the things they blather on about.

GeorgeD, all of your comments will be deleted.

Kurt said... @ September 19, 2006 at 6:28 PM

Yeah, the bloggernacle sucks and it is all my fault. I admit it. It was a center of non-stop stellar wisdom before I came in. I polluted this telestial kingdom of boobies, poops, sex talk, cross dressers, pretentious pseudo-intellectuals, and scriptural ignoramuses.

I beg you to forgive me. I will now retire, and allow all of you to return to your high-browed cosmopolitainism.

How is the Bloggernacle like a box of granola?

What isn't fruits and nuts is flakes.

The bloggernacle is full of people who think their opinions matter when they just don't. Sorry, but just because you think some thought in your head that doesn't make it right, good or noteworthy. It is little more than a cacophony of bored attention seekers who prefer to talk rather than do.

danithew said... @ September 20, 2006 at 7:36 AM

the 'Nacle is people ... and people have their faults. That doesn't surprise me. And yes there are certainly fruits, nuts and flakes. But what the hell ...

Steve EM said... @ September 20, 2006 at 12:20 PM

Ok, what's GoergeD saying about me now?

I'm so iconoclastic that I view Snarkernacle as among the elites. But it is a fun site, even if you guys can't take being snarked yourselves.

Snarkimus Prime said... @ September 20, 2006 at 12:29 PM

Steve EM, stupid insults are not the same thing as snarks.

I have been deleting everything from you and GeorgeD because it was a petty spat that spilled over from 9M. This is no place for the two of you to have a sissy slap fight, and I am not going to play Kindergarten Cop between a couple of juveniles.
