(Post revised) The aforementioned blogger did post a response, and dubbed me a "troll" (I wonder if that's a racial reference? ha!). Apparently a "troll" is someone who posts a comment to get an angry response. Constantly Amazed, Yet Never Surprised: Rule #1: DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS The Newssnipet Troll Make sure you read the comments--they are having a virtual orgy over there!

    Hmm. An interesting post indeed. Probably best to avoid that person from now on.

    I think you're right, Smorg. At this point I think further attempts at discourse on my part would be considered harrassment on my part. Wouldn't want to do that :)

    I had to leave a comment on that blog.

    Ha! Nolff, you're my hero!

    How are things going? Been to our new expensive stadium yet?

    Jack? Um, new stadium? Does that mean you live in St. Louis? Are you a *gasp* Cardinals fan?

    Oops, no Kathy. We have a new stadium for an A team here in Greenville, SC. My buddy from Ill is a Cardinals fan, but I's a Boston fan from way back.

    Yes, the new stadium is awesome. I was there opening night.

    Planning on going week from Sat.

    Westside is looking good.

    BTW, that "Mike's America" guy--he's not a real conservative--he's an ideologue. We don't have any true conservatives in America anymore...

    If he is censoring, he doesn't belong in blogdom.

    I like trolls. They make us grateful for how blessed we are to possess our full faculties of logic and reason. I am once again forced to consider the old adage, "ad hominim attacks are the product of a weak mind."

    The troll is very weak indeed. And fun to read. Don't ban him; shame him.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
