Assholes who don't get the blog
The Spelling Police
You tend to put punctuation outside of quotation marks. (ie, "I am not a bigot" is eerily akin to "I am not a crook".) The editor in me froths a little every time I run across it.
The overly-long bashing of nitwits in the comments -it gets excessive and redundant.
Keeps me from writing
That I'm not heavily promoted on it. (Kidding.)
Blatant Scottie discrimination!
No archives visible on the front page
My comment hasn't ever appeared!
Anyone who disagrees with Miss Snark. Hmph.
Commenters who pontificate just for the pleasure of seeing their nom de plume in print but who really have nothing worthwhile whatsoever to add.
When some A-hole tries to get the best of Miss Snark or KY.
No free chocolate (whatsup with that?)
the tight focus.
The only thing I hate about your blog is that I am now constitutionally incapable of firing up my laptop in the morning without checking the blog. Yours is the siren of blogs, I dare not sail past without listening to the honey tongued wisdom. Perhaps
not hatred after all.
Those who ask questions without searching in the archives for similar topics. Aarrrrrrrgh
Not always being able to be the one with a witty comment.
The fact that you can't reply to all questions (but I understand why, you probably have a social life, and when you're reading really really awful query letters and MS's you're probably drowning yourself in a bucket of gin ;)
Snarkling feeding frenzies (especially when they try (but always fail) to be as funny as the Divine Miss S)
Not getting Email questions answered due to popularity of Miss Snark :) (I've sent 3 in a year, but no reply, not even a "sorry I'm cleaning out the backlog so I'm deleting yours")
Sometimes when I read the comments, I think the Snarklings are just plain vicious. They can, at times, demonstrate a lemmingesque mob-mentality against perceived nitwits. That kind of behavior turns me off. Of course, I realize this is not something you control. It's simply part of the blogsphere.
That you've quit posting poetry. I'm all for copyrights and protection, but I miss it. Besides, I think that it's a bit of a gray area of copyright law when you're actually causing folks to go out and find the books in question (as is evidenced by comments). Could be construed as marketing. (Yes, used to do permissions for a small house and yes, would've given you a blanket "yes" for this specific usage.)
