There. Are. No. Words.

I was going to correlate Wilifred's un-nuanced and boringly predictable claim that (once again) Europe is better than America in every way (we get it already, Wilifred - talk about cultural snobbery). ESO and Frank M. add some nuance, which is promptly dismissed. Must stick to the simple narrative, y'know.

But then I saw Adam Greenwood's farewell post.

There. Are. No. Words.

I am at a loss what to say. Clearly, the man has had some mental breakdown brought on by being the lone conservative voice (some might say Frank M. or Nate O. are conservative voices, but no one really understands their jargon laden pseudo-academic & lawyerly econo-speak). While he was clearly a little loopy, he at least brought some semblance of balance to the blog. Now, despite his claims to the contrary, it's clear he was driven out by the progressive puritans currently running the blog.

Further proof of his breakdown can be seen at his new blog, which claims to be a group blog but seems to be written (posts and comments!) by the multiple personalities in Adam's head.

UPDATE: Best comment on this "issue" is from Dan the loony loon of a Democrat. He says it must be Adam's fault because "The dude has many issues, and cannot tolerate dissenting views. He gets angry and lashes out when people dare show even the slightest criticism .." Now, Danny boy, that phrase perfectly describes someone, but it isn't Adam.

ANOTHER UPDATE: It's the gift that keeps on giving! Ardis (who usually seems to be one of the more level headed bloggers) totally melts down and outright calls Adam a liar. Meanwhile, jimbob says what everyone but the super sized egos at T&S and elsewhere know to be true: most of the permafrosters on the 'Nacle glory in being unorthodox and enjoy ridiculing faithful members. He is, of course, promptly insulted in some of the best doublethink and doublespeak I've seen in a long, long while.

Keep it up, y'all. It's fun to watch your collective psychoses clash with your oversized egos.

ONE MORE UPDATE: Most of the threads above have (in rare instances of good judgment) closed comments before they got even nastier. However, DKL has a thread here that is almost (but not quite) as good as Dan the creepy Democrat's projection. He says: "What I dislike second most about the Bloggernacle is how people like Adam Greenwood are able to manipulate their own disgrace into an accusatory examination of another man’s faith."

That's rich, coming from someone who's been banned from other blogs quite often for attacking other people's faith and intellect. And the fact DKL considers his bannings a badge of honor, it's odd to see him attack Adam for, in essence, doing the same thing DKL does all the frakking time.

UPDATES GALORE: Well, somehow I missed this classy bit at BCC. Very classy John C. Didn't your mother ever tell you that "Shut up" was rude? Also - people in the 'Nacle are more concerned with their egos than the gospel. So of course, angsty navel-gazing beats actually living the gospel.

Also, notice how all the recent posts at T&S (even Kaimi's!) since Adam's oh-so-amicable departure, have been straight down the line orthodox-friendly? We'll see how long it lasts. At least until the next big Same-sex marriage case.

This is the kind of Bloggernacle meltdown that snarkers only dream of.

It's only during these times that the real egos behind these blogs actually come out waving their flags.

Hallelujah! I believe!

I endeavor to give satisfaction.

The real news here (and its only news to some) is that Kaimi is basically a full-blown apostate and has been living a double (or triple depending on how you count) blogging life for some time. It's high time he came out from behind the curtain and took responsibility for his views and statements.

I was so waiting for a post here (and everywhere else) on this issue. One day, I wish I could be a snarker.

Anonymous said...

You can be a snarker now, Andrew. Well, except for the one problem that you're not funny.

Mister Correlation said...

Andrew seems funny to me (take that however you want).

Also, at least Andrew's honest about who he is and his relationship to the church/gospel (unlike a certain K.W. at T&S).

Also, I assume that comment #2 is from Adam.

Andrew S said...

see, even when I'm getting commented here, it's snarkalicious.

I have much to learn from the experts

Tinkerbell said...

300 pounds of projection.

There is irony dripping from that last comment from you MC, but I can't quite figure out why.

Mister Correlation said...

Don't worry. I can't figure out why myself either. Just go with it, y'know?

Thanks for alerting me to the Greenwood/Wenger trainwreck. As for Ardis being "level-headed", I have to disagree. She's certainly more orthodox than the average member of the Bloggernacle, but beware to those (left or right) who disagree with her in the slightest. That woman needs to join me and George Costanza at Rageaholics Anonymous.

I wonder if Mr Greenwood would have caused more of a stir if he had posted about leaving the church instead of leaving T&S. I know where my money would go.

Anonymous said...

Uh, the part about Ardis being level headed was sarcasm. You might want to look up that word, you seem hopelessly unfamiliar with it.

Andrew S said...

it seems detecting sarcasm on the internet may be as formidable a challenge as discovering NOMs in our midst.

I guess this is an example of that scripture about gifts of the spirit - some will have he gift of discernment, and others will just have the gift of gab

Mister Correlation said...

'Tis a gift to be simple,
'Tis a gift to be free,
'Tis a gift to come down where you ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
It will be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed.
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Until by turning, turning we come round right

I don't see sarcasm or gab there. I'm sure "snark" is in one of the lost verses, though.

Oh, well. As I don't exist in the corporeal world, it doesn't really affect me at all.

Kaimi has a response up on Adam's blog. Allow me to paraphrase:

"Yes, I tried the DAMU boards once (ahem. twice.) (ahem. three time.) (ahem. aw, heck. I've lost count). But I didn't like it, and I didn't inhale.

I'll look it up if you'll look up "comma splice".

Anonymous said...

I looked it up. You're stupid twice, now. Care to try again?

Dan said...

Is this the new snarklenaccle? I've missed being snarked. It's nice to be back in the good graces of the snarkers. :)

Mister Correlation said...

No Dan, this is not the "New" anything. It is what it is (and it's been around for quite awhile).

And you are still insane and petty. I have no good graces for you (or anyone on the 'Nacle, really - but your insane rantings almost make the rest of the 'Nacle seem sane, which is why they keep you around, I guess).

Mister Correlation said...

As for the battle over definitions above:

I think it's clear we're all rather stupid infinite times over. Narrowing down to just twice gives any of us too much credit.

Dan said...

Good, I'll keep at it then. When a snarker calls me insane, it means that I'm not.

Anonymous2 said...

Dan--

I know you are, but what am I?

Anonymous said...

Anon2,
you complete me. Like Dan, I may be petty and insane, but I'm also lauging.

-Adam Greenwood

Anonymous said...

Uh, laughing. Us petty and insane people never laug.

-Adam Greenwood

Mister Correlation said...

And Dan continues to show he lacks any and all capacity for self-awareness.

At least Adam seems to have a sense of humor about it. Adam is insane and funny. Dan's just plain insane.

Dan said...

Actually I'm quite self aware. Those who snark use snarking as a cover to justify being mean to others. They pretend to make fun when they really want to say nasty things about others. It's okay. I don't mind saying bad things about Adam or about Glenn Beck. I'm not afraid of standing on those points. You guys can go ahead and hide behind snarking in order to do exactly what I do: be mean.

Mister Correlation said...

Dan, you are a blessing for us snarkers. People like you make the job easy. Thanks for stopping by.

Dan said...

exactly. I'm pleased. Keep bringing more and more attention my way. Keep linking to my comments. Sooner or later, I'll get more visitors to my blog. Isn't that supposedly my point of commenting?

Or you could just ignore me... but you like to be mean just like me, so predictably you snark.

Keep up the awful work.

Sooner or later, I'll get more visitors to my blog.

I've seen your blog, so I'm guessing "later".

Anonymous said...

or never.

Dan said...

it's great, I've had three views from Bloggernacle Correlation to my great blog. Keep it up Mr. Correlation.

Dan said...

oh yeah, i've put up two more posts about the insanity of Glenn Beck for your viewing pleasure. Be my guest. View my blog. Write about me. You know you want to. Apparently I make your job easy.

Anonymous2 said...

Mister C, would I get moderated for posting a comment with the word "whore" in it?

Mister Correlation said...

It all depends on the context. And your accent.

Anonymous2 said...

It would have been preceded by the word "attention", but I think I'll forbear.

Dan said...

awww, I don't see anymore traffic to my blog from yours. That's too bad. I guess I should say even crazier things, like Glenn Beck's mama was his dada too... what do you think, will that bring more traffic to my blog?
