* Sady Doyle writes in support of snark (kinda):

“Snark” is one of those fundamentally goofy internet neologisms that we could try to fight, but are better-off just learning to work with.

Snark is the kids at the back of the class, heckling the substitute teacher; it’s the voice of people who feel stifled, talked down to, or left out; the tool of people who have discovered that honing in on the weaknesses of those in power, exposing them publicly (if only to their own circle of friends), and reducing them to figures of fun (if only in their own minds), makes them feel a little less helpless.
