#3 Her 'filmography' barely qualifies, but I shouldn't complain...

#4 The auto-snark in all these articles has long since lost its humor value. It just makes them more cumbersome to read. I'd like to offer the suggestion that it be turned off in the new year.

#5 We can do that if desired. Other opinions?

#6 Sure, if we aren't gonna get hit with a suit by copyright trolls again and if we do, the complaintant is willing to foot the fees.

#7 Over time, the autosnark has become semi-transparent, but is still moderately funny. As Pappy says, the purpose was not humor, but troll poison. And maybe, making fun of Pakistain.

Would be a fun Natural Language Processing project to write AutoSnarker 2.0.

#8 I like the auto-snark.

#9 I like it, but wouldn't die if the majority decided otherwise.

#10 If you couldn't tell, I like snark: auto and otherwise

#11 When I get time (at a premium since I retired) I like to work on the autosnarker. Even if we do away with it, I don't think I'd do away with "However," and "Meanwhile,"

In the present instance, I put the Caliphornia in the wrong section of code. It's now been moved so it will only show up the first instance.

#12 Besides which, I've been at this so long I found myself repeating myself. Might as well let the software do the typing...

#13 So we must eventually prepare for the day when Hamas is no longer the voice of sweet reason.

#14 I like most of the AS, but I am guessing that RemoteMan has taking a dislike to the attachments to Califrnia and Detroit. They are a bit cumbersome.

However
(did u c wut i did thar?)
from time to time Fredman syncs up with the autosnark and it is amazing.

I say keep, but prune.

#15 The autosnark is good, we need more of it rather than less.

Hamas could be not just the voice of sweet reason, but the gangsters of gaza, the butchers of Sderot, or the proxyboys.

And goodness knows there are more inserts for however and therefore than rats in New York. They practically write themselves.

So, go gadget snark, go!

#16 I too like the "Meanwhile and However" entries. Snark is good and right. Our enemies and those who crawl on their bellies (metaphorically or otherwise) deserve to be mocked. That said, I am painfully aware at this point that Harmid Karzai once ran a restaurant in Baltimore. If some modification can be made without too much trouble, all good. Otherwise, I will continue to read on as before.

#17 If you don't like the auto-snark, skip it. It's not like it's not set out, in color, to distinguish it from the actual story.

I didn't know that fooling the copyright trolls was the reason for the auto-snark, Fred. I thought you were just imaginative and have a sense of humor.

#18 Leave it up. Most of us can work around it.

#19 "Hamid Karzai, who might be caped but is definately not a crusader..."
