From snark to loathing

I hope I'm not offending anyone by posting this, but I think it's worth mentioning.

I discovered this community not too long ago and decided to go the archives and read all the strip snarks along with the comic (starting on 2005) because I used to enjoy Lynn's comics a lot more and found out that other people thought it evolved for the worse.

Long story short, I continued reading the posts after the "new" ones began to run, because they still deserved snark and I was hoping to finish reading Therese's unauthorized biography (I'm up to July 2010 now and still no sign of the ending, was it ever done?).

It used to be that this community was able to concede that Lynn had her good moments once in a while, but the closer I get to the present strips, the more filled with hate the posts are. Now it's as if Elly cannot sneeze without someone saying she's an idiot who hates her children. What happened?

Jeez, it used to be that I thought the snarks were great, but now I'd rather read the strips than read what some people post about it because those posts and comments are just filled with hate and bitterness.
