snark is a vile, addicting substance. it seems enticing, everybody does it, and it's fun in small quantities, but too much can really put you in a bad state of mind, and consistent use will destroy you as a person.

sarcasm too. really, I consider them two sides of the same coin

the obvious example of this is 4chan, that quickly moved from "ironic" to "dangerous," but I bring it up now because ishkur's guide is snarky, thinks swears are cool, uses sexist and ableist slurs, and deadnames somebody, and yet so many people are praising it for exactly that.

also, I am not immune to this. I use snark, shamefully. If you do too, I don't want you to think you are a bad person. I am trying to be better, and think you can too.
