File under: Celebrity Poet Deathmatch, Killing With Words, Potayto versus Potahto

While Ben Huff is eagerly anticipating Nate's upstart antics in his usual ingratiating manner, Supergenius Steve sure isn't. And while he is at it, he also takes a shot at the Millennial Black Hole's newest permanent defacer.

Sure, sure, Steve does obliquely censure his own as well, just for good measure, but he is really referring to the non-BCC commentors who speculate wildly before being sent off elsewhere, so J.Stapley is sure not to take offense.

In the battle for #1, it is clear where Steve stands. T&S aspires to academic credentialism, and in doing so is helping suck the life out of the Bloggernacle, nay all of Mormonism, like so many leeches. In the mean time, BCC fills the Bloggernacle with the more appropriate types of soul-fortifying non-bone-marrow-sucking Mormon scholarship via Dialogue.

Well now, that certainly clears things up: T&S Mormon Studies = BAD, BCC Mormon Studies = GOOD. Yay! Or, maybe what Steve is saying is: T&S Desperate Attempts at Mormon Studies = BAD, BCC Clearly Established and Highly Accomplished Mormon Studies = GOOD. Huzzah!

You need to change this to a cage match that includes the big 3.

Keats v. Yates v. Norm Bates.

Snarkette is a Smiths fan!!!

A dreaded sunny day
so let's go where we're wanted
and I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
but you lose because Wilde is on mine

Cemetry Gates is what led Steve to his post, he couldn't stand the idea of both Keats and Yeats on T&S' side.

Steve is the Smiths fan, not Snarkette. Snarkette wouldnt be caught dead in heavy mascara and olive drab.

Don't try to tell me that you're an intellectual,
cuz you're just another boring bisexual.

There is no such thing as "Mormon Studies." Sorry. There just isn't--no matter how many time permabores et. al. chant the mantra.

Snarkette is a sorry-ass bitch.

DKL, you are an evil troll who has nothing better to do with his life than spread the bitterness and hatred of his soul upon others. Sorry your life is so empty and meaningless that you have nothing else better to do, David, but I am not going to allow you to embitter me with your hate.

Have a nice life hating everyone and everything.

Yet you are the one spreading hatred and bad feelings with your snarky snarks. You don't care who your site hurts or what effect it has on their lives- as long as you get a laugh from someone in the bloggernacle. And frankly, I find that disgusting. You are a disgusting, uncharitable person. You may act all Christ-like in real life, but here your true colors come out. Colors that you must be ashamed of, for why else would you hide your identity?

How can you look yourself in the mirror, snarkette, when you are so mean to people? Believe it or not, the sharp and unwarranted criticism you throw around on here really impacts some people to the extreme negative.

Hence the word bitch thrown your general direction. Only a bitch would take such pleasure out of hurting people. A sadistic, hateful bitch.

Thus saith an anonymous commenter...

Wow, someone else thought of the Smiths lyrics when they read those posts or snark post. I had the same exact reaction.

Snarkimus Prime said... @ September 22, 2006 at 6:30 AM

David,

You are a hypocrite and troll. You condemned us as cowards for posting anonymously, and there you are, a banned troll who has been told repeatedly not to comment here, sitting there commenting anonymously. You do exactly what you condemn others for.

Then you have the nerve to accuse us of being insensitive to others feelings? You are one of the most vicious, unfeeling jerks in the Bloggernacle. You attack people personally all the time, and you take great pleasure in it.

All of the accusations you throw at others are merely a projection of all the things you do and hate about yourself.

So, DKL, why don't you send your wife around to tell us all how dashing you are just one more time? Maybe it will convince us this time. Or not.

Snarkette can dish it out but she sure can't take any. But isn't that characteristic of snarkers? I remember a woman years ago who had the most biting sracastic tongue who got terribly offended when anyone said anything to her. Get help Snarkette!

Give it a rest DKL, or is it SKL this time? Both of you are a couple of nut jobs. If anyone needs professional help, its an idiot who constantly talks about himself and how everyone unjustifiably hates him and persecutes him. Self-made martyrs are the worst.

snarkette's not anonymous, it's kurt.

1. I am not DKL. But he is also an insensitive jerk.

2. You are right that it is cowardly to confront the Snarkette anonymously. But she has already caused me enough hurt and I don't want to expose myself to her.

3. Snarkette- as angry as it makes you to hear it, your snarkiness on this blog has really, really harmed some people. I have spoken with several such people personally. Maybe you think they should just grow thicker skins or whatever, but that does not excuse your daily pleasure in subjecting others to mockery and ridicule.

Yes- sometimes (perhaps often) people make fools of themselves in the bloggernacle. They probably realize it and don't need or want a mirror shining the spotlight back on their own lack of judgment. Perhaps you and some other sick people think this is actually doing them a service to show people how ugly they look. But I have to say that mean is mean and the type of mocking ridicule you subject people to on this blog is cruel and unchristlike.

I would expect to see this sort of unfeeling ridicule in the world generally, but it is shocking coming from one who, I assume, has made covenants to ease other people's burdens, to comfort those in need of comfort, and to stand as a witness of Christ at all times. Even though you may get laughs from like-minded people, you are really hurting others. Is that worth making other people laugh?

Bottom line: I think you must be a mean, horrible, unfeeling person. Who else would take such pleasure out of inflicting such pain on others? I am not usually so sharp in my remarks but I just can't believe how far you have taken this.

DKL (The Troll), you are BANNED! Got it? I realize you think the rules don't apply to you, but they do. Comment again and it will be deleted, troll or anonymous name caller. And, you know perfectly well that Kurt is not Snarkette. You are just taking cheap shots, because that is all you are capable of.

Anonymous,

People who are on Snarkernacle get what they have earned on the Bloggernacle. Anyone who has ever had a complaint against the Snarkernacle who has taken it up with us in private has been accomodated, and we have a 100% take down rate. People like you who shovel just as much hateful vitriol as you acuse us of shoveling get what they deserve. For someone so concerned about us living our covenants, you sure aren't worried about living yours and setting a good example for us to follow. But, hey, every has to be nice to you and not you to them, right? You see, that is the problem with people like you, you expect special treatment and you hate it when you don't get it. You think what you say is somehow of greater worth, everone is equal on the Bloggernacle, but you and yours are more equal. And that is why the Snarkernacle is here, because of elitists like you who hate being called out and exposed for what you are and do.

Sorry, Anonymous, but your words are empty, Anyone who has ever had a problem with us and contacted us privately has been dealt with fairly 100% of the time. We have never, NEVER, rejected their request to remove or reword. But, people like you who take it upon themselves to self-righteously shoot their mouths off and act as awful as we allegedly are, we just ignore you. Just like you could ignore us, but you don't, because your vanity prevents it.
