I'll join. I start out with the best of intentions, and seemed to get sucked in way more than I used to. I think I'll blame it on the pregnancy hormones. I have to try real hard to be nice all the time to dh and ds, so it seems to be exploding here.<br><br>
(Although I still do try hard to be nice here too!)

Hey..... saw a bumper sticker today that reminds me of myself when I'm in such a mood. (can't seem to keep away from these forums right now, no matter how snarky they get. Can't tell if my snarky mood is making me enjoy them or if I'm enjoying them because the threads are making me snarky?)<br><br>
I have PMS and ESP....... I'm a bitch and I know everything!!!!!!!!!!!

I happen to like snarkiness, so I see no reason for anyone to give it up.<br><br>
I actually wasn't online for a while, and found all the mainstream vs. AP threads when they were all like 7 pages long, so I have just stayed out of it.

Can I come, too? I've not been too snarky but probably inappropriately posting jokes in the middle of a tense thread. Does that count?

Yay, thanks!<br><br>
'Course I'm going to go off to bed now. I just satisfied my snarkiness by PM'ing a mod.<br><br>
Later, recovering snarky sistas!

Actually IdentityCrisisMama... (only imo, i guess) the threads that I've been following, that you've participated VALUABLY within, as example, you've NOT been thought of as "snarky" at all. You bring another thought, which is the point of the thread's existence.<br><br>
I personally think that you putting your own real beliefs forward, then feeling like they're automatically "snarky" if they go agaisnt the OP statement, is weird. You've been nothing other than educational within the threads that I've seen your voice.<br><br>
Don't *feel* snarky, but DO stand up for what you view as progressive, whatever it may be... it'll all work out in the end. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Hmmm, I have been a product of snarkyness some could say:LOL(for those who know)<br>
And was pushed to the edge and became snarky myself, maybe a bit beyond <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle"><br><br>

I don’t have a problem with snark in general and also fund it very entertaining. I’m glad to hear that some of you appreciate this stuff for what it is --- A good - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fencing.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fencing">:<br>
Personally, it doesn’t bother me too much but I do wonder if other members resent threads that are mostly snark. Also, this last round of snarkieness has got me worried that I may have contributed to some hurt some feelings. The other thing is I totally derailed an important thread and I feel bad about that. I know what it feels like to have your thread ruined because someone is feeling snarky so I don’t like doing that to people.<br><br>
However, I don’t think I’ve ever been snarky about parenting issues here at MDC. It’s those fringe threads that get me going. And, yea, I’ve definitely been baited in the past – and I’ve done my share of baiting as well.<br><br>
(Arthead – are you baiting me now, I hear you calling me back… :LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/whistling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="whistle"> must.stay.away.)<br><br>
On my good snark days I tend to get especially snarky about other peoples snarkieness (I’m judgmental about judgmental people too!) and I usually feel that’s an okay dialogue to get into. I guess I assume that if they can give it they can take it. But now, I feel like such a hypocrite!<br>
In the past, I’ve gone on and on about “loving each other” and all that crap <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/soapbox.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="soapbox"><br><br>

Sweetbaby3, Does broccoli help with snarkiness <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/idea.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="idea"> ? And, yes – jokes in the middle of a snarky thread are the best <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/tomato.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="tomato"> !<br><br>
We could start to develop tactics to divert excessive snarkieness. From what I can see, changing the subject to personal hygiene problems works really well! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/inthet.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="inthet"><br><br>

It looks like this (by page 8 or so) could evolve into a MAJORLY snarky thread. Count me in here- I'm done being nice. Let the snarkiness begin!
