You're not serious right? Because even if this is the snarkiest page I've ever witnessed, it still belongs in Essay (IMHO). ThunderkatzHo! 20:36, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

No, it is a work in progress. Sorry, the snarks really should be taken out. HeartGoldDemonstrate the spirit of stupor 20:37, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
Cool. Just so there's no confusion, can you tell me which points you consider snark? Not to be judgmental, but sometimes (as in the swarm essay) I have trouble knowing when you're being serious and when you're being snarky. That might just be because I don't know you very well, and it might be obvious to others. ThunderkatzHo! 20:43, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
No, many people have the same problem you describe. HeartGoldDemonstrate the spirit of stupor 20:46, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
This article gives me a headache. Locke Random 20:52, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
It makes me sad. Damn liberals wanting to spend money on light rail and bicycle paths while infrastructure crumbles. HeartGoldDemonstrate the spirit of stupor 20:54, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Sorry, forgot...Locke Random 20:57, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

I'm pretty sure he's protesting via satire… he writes an inflammatory article and places it in the main namespace, against the protests of others. Satirical hypocrisy, IMO. --Linus(plot evil tech) 21:39, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

"amock", priceless.

We have let infrastructure go to hell in this country...what is a libertarian to do??--PalMD-Goatspeed! 21:46, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Well there's 200,000 cars and trucks on that bridge everyday! No wonder it fell, (~ my dear lady~). CЯacke® 21:54, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
15,000-200,000. Something happened. The NATSB will get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile, we speculate. HeartGoldDemonstrate the spirit of stupor 22:05, 1 August 2007 (CDT)
Lousy Canadian illegal immigrants, driving their pickem ups, ruining OUR bridges. CЯacke® 22:08, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

ACD seems a reasonable choice. Think im a hypocrite? The thought had occurred to me, although i was hardly the first person to mention that this wasn't much of an article.--PalMD-Goatspeed! 22:13, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Nah, you're no more of a hypocrite than any other human being I know, as far as I can tell. Anyway, I am done snarking--real people were hurt and died. My apologies to those who knew people on the bridge, or were fearful that loved ones were on the bridge. HeartGoldDemonstrate the spirit of stupor 22:21, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

"Liberalism Run Amuck"?[edit]

Even for a blatant troll, this is in pretty bad taste. Right up there with Aschlafly's idiotic effort to blame the Virginia Tech shootings on pornography, and HE was serious. --Gulik 01:58, 2 August 2007 (CDT)
