Fighting snark ...

... with snark: New Yorker critic rails at web malice. (Hat tip, Paul Davis.)

Ed chats with David Denby: The Bat Segundo Show: David Denby. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

And more: Sticks and Stones. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The interesting thing about snark and the Internet is that the latter has simply enabled those who lack the guts to say that sort of thing in person to get it off their chests. As someone who has, over the years, said in public quite a few things that could be described as snarky, I think I know what I'm talking about. Of course, I'm much more mild-mannered now.
