Which pretty much defeats the initiative.

Like I said, Jude should spend some time checking out Deadspin for ideas how to present the snark without getting too heavy handed about it.

I think we need a series of Snark Article Civil War banners.

Use that picture for the "I'm with Jude Terror" banners.

There is obviously no middle ground to be had between dry, copy and pasted articles and ones that are practically parody.

I don't care for the snark in this post. Please change the tone of your posts because I don't like it. I would prefer if you made posts that were more informative with less sarcasm. Since you perform this service for free, it is your duty to do it to my specifications.

WTF is this rank?

Seems like I must be the douchebag because I actually like to read comic news here and lately can't get any of it here.

How dare you be critical of my posts. I will now try to belittle you and make you feel like your were wrong to not enjoy my every post.

Twenty-six of the last forty articles posted on the front page (which covers the last 40 hours or so) have no snark in them whatsoever.

Jude already laid out the ultimate suggestion. Write some solid nonfunny by the book articles. :smt102

I appreciate constructive criticism. "Hey Jude, I felt this specific article, you laid it on a little heavy." "Hey Jude, I would have appreciated a little bit more information in the (example) article."

"There's too much snark, it's everywhere, Arrgghh!" "ThanosCopter has ruined the site!" and "Jude and Thanos Copter should write less articles!" does not have much constructive value to me, so I'm not sure how else to respond.

Also, a lot of writers spend time here writing serious, non-snarky reviews and other columns. I frequently see them fall down the page with no comments, ignored. Maybe instead of focusing on the stuff people don't like, they should provide positive feedback to the stuff they do like, thus encouraging those writers to write more and making them feel like their work is appreciated. My last VS. has, I believe, 0 comments. Red and Blue Reviews put out at least 3 columns in the last week, with less than 5 comments between them.
